So, how was YOUR weekend? :)
Saturday we went shopping for a new sofa and chair. Of course, I got to stop at a couple thrift stores too.
I found three table runners. the yellow one and the one on the left( that the bowls are sitting on) were only 90 cents each. I left the price tags on so you could see too. The one to the right, under the rolling pin was 2.99.
the rest of the items were priced at:
rolling pin 69 cents
brown enamelware cup 49 cents
small brown crock 49 cents
vintage rabbit 1.50
new pack of dishcloths 1.49
two vintage striped bowls 40 cents each
new box of microscope slides 69 cents( for making ornies and maybe other projects)
last but not least a small alphabet cross stitchery 69 cents.
I also got a pair of khaki capris but I didn't figure those were important to photograph. lol
I was very pleased with all my goodies, especially since there isn't usually much to pick from on the weekends.
We did find a new sofa and an over sized chair. I need to get a couple throw pillows before I post a pic. It just doesn't look pulled together to me- or maybe I will grab a pic tomorrow and get your suggestions. We also rented a "rug doctor" and steam cleaned carpets until 11:00 pm on Saturday night.
Today was my dad's 70th birthday! Happy Birthday Dad!!
Check out this pic. It was an actually photo of him from the service. This was taken with Diamond Head in the background. photo was dated, "July 10, 1960".
He was soo suprised to see it on the cake. He remembered it being taken, but my mom ( and his ex wife) had it in a bunch of photos that she had given me.
This is my dad, check out the "stylish gotee" he is growing. I told him he looks hip. :)
for lunch( before the cake, of course) we had mexican. It is one of my dad's favorites.
We had chicken enchilados, tacos( w/homemade shells) , con queso( with bacon), spanish rice and iced tea. Stuffed we all were, let me tell ya!!!
This is us, the kids, with dad. :)
