Little Bench

My Mom picked this up for me at a yard sale for $2.00 and we painted it mustard yellow. I am actually looking for a bench for my front flower garden to set a birdhouse on, but this one was a little to small, so we will have to keep looking.

More Changes

Some more redecorating pictures from the new tv coming in. This got moved to the bathroom and the candles were added to it.

This the barn star that had to get moved, it is now in my bedroom. I bought this at a little country store for only $20.00. I was shocked when I seen the price tag as this is a big star..not little at all.

This is above my husband's dresser.

This is above the bed. Another ebay purchase.

I bought this off Ebay a long time ago and just never got around to hanging it up, I am looking for other bowls to put in it but for now this all I had. Also looking for another sign to put underneath it.

This is my new wall arrangement, the yellow box is actually a cover for my thermostat, got that off of Ebay also. Can you tell I'm an Ebay

Since the new tv takes up more room height wise then the old one, I had to take down the barn star that I had hanging on the wall behind the old tv as you could not see it any more. So I decided to move stuff around and hang some stuff up that I never got around to.

New tv cabinet and dumpster find

This is my new tv cabinet that we got over the weekend. No one had any black cabinets that I liked and we both liked this one so we got it. No more tv on the floor. It holds all the stereo equipment in the bottom part with the glass doors (which I can see the wires in the picture..have to fix them) and the vcr/dvd player is in the open part. The doors have pull out trays to hold dvd's or cd's, plus storage on the bottom. Of course I had to add the pip berries to prim it up a little...still looking for something to put next to the vcr/dvd player.

The chair we got out of the dumpster at the store that we bought the tv cabinet from. Did not see it till we got home, but there is a crack in the seat part, but with my chair pad on it. you can't even see it. It is now my new computer chair.

Hubby's new toy

This has nothing to do with prim decor at all or even crafting in any way but I thought I would show you the thing that my husband decided he had to have... it's a 50" wide screen do you hide this????

Our old tv was like 12 years old we really needed a new this came I have to find a stand of some kind to put it is sitting on the floor right now. (The speakers are not from the tv..they are from the stereo...can you tell hubby likes big electronic

Ebay win

My newest ebay win..4 place-mats, 1 towel and 2 pot-holders...the towel is not in the picture but they all have the same picture on them. I will probably use the place-mats for a week or two then pack them away for the 4th of July. We are not big on place-mats out all the time here.

We bought this milk can at an auction years ago and it was ugly and had an eagle on it, so I just painted it black and that's the way it stayed for a long time. I seen a picture on the internet where someone added a star to their's, so I did that this morning. The star still needs a 2nd coat of paint, but it looks good so far. (The milk can is wet in the 1st picture so that is why it looks shiny in certain spots and dull in others.)

Saturday Outing

We set out Saturday going to Bushkill Falls, it's considered the Niagara of Pennsylvania. There are 8 different waterfalls there, and lots of trails to get to them. The water level was pretty low though yesterday so the falls weren't at their best, but it was still a nice place to visit.
We also stopped at a farmers market and a few antique shops but we did not find anything within our price range.

Happy Anniversary

Tomorrow is my 17th wedding anniversary, they have been filled with a lot of good times and a few rough ones. But we look forward to many more good ones in the future.
(I made the wedding couple above for my wedding out of plastic canvas. I don't know how the spots of rust got on them as they have been packed away for a lot of years.) I have been crafting for a long time and still enjoy making stuff myself.

Yesterday was the last day for my co-worker, she worked with me part-time for 3 years while she went to college to become a teacher. She accepted a job and she starts in a few weeks, so yesterday was her last day as she is going away on vacation for a week and then spending the week after that getting her classroom ready and stuff.
I bought her a going away present with some school supplies for her classroom. Had a lot of fun picking it all out. I love the little spaceships and I think I will go back and get some to put away for our little one to use someday...they are so cute.

I am going to be doing the nursery in a Old Toy Theme and thought I would show you all some of the items that I have already. The 1st picture is some Winnie the Pooh books, the ones on the right I bought at a thrift store for $2.00, the box is in bad shape but the books are like brand new, the other pooh books I sent away for through the mail.
The 2nd group of books are a bunch of Little Golden Books that my Mom has been picking up at yard sales for me.
3rd picture is a crib blanket that I got off of ebay and the last picture is the wallpaper border that I plan on using, also bought of Ebay.
