Wonderful Wednesday...

Oh it was a great day today. I am so excited to say that I am getting ready to go on a trip. My sister and I are taking my 3 youngest nephews to Kansas City and St. Louis. The boys are 13, 12 and 9. We are going to KC to see the Minnesota Twins play the KC Royals and then in St. Louis we are going to the Gateway Arch and Museum. I am very excited and hope that we all have a good time. I have to work tomorrow so today was my day to get the laundry done and figure out which clothes I will be taking. I will pack tomorrow after work. I also have to go and pick up two of my nephews, Ian and Ivan.
The other day I went to GW and found a couple of things I thought I would share...I got this cute picture and frame for a dollar,

And also this wire candle holder. The only thing is that I have to find really thin tapers because the regular tapers I had didn't fit into this, any ideas?
Oh geesh don't you just love that my remote is there too? LOL

So as you know I have just started with my prim decorating. I do a lot of looking around, drooling and dreaming. Do you all have a wish list? Right now there are three things that I am hoping to get by the end of summer. One is a shelf from Firecracker Kid's shop! I just love all of the creations they have there. The second thing I would love is a prairie bonnet. I just love how they look hanging on a peg. and the last thing for this summer is a cute prairie doll. There are many many more things on my list, especially  holiday items to decorate for fall and Christmas with but hopefully I will be able to do some swaps for some of those things.

Well I hope I don't get too far behind when I am gone, I might just have to sneak in some computer time if I can. Have a great weekend everyone! Be blessed in all you do.

Hi Cindi,

Wow...what a find for a $1 in the pic at Goodwill! You did well! I dropped by GW last week and found a couple of things too. That's part of the fun in decorating our homes is the journey getting there and acquiring the things. When you do it on a thrify budget, it's even more special (in my opinion anyway).

I love bonnets too!

You all have a great time in Kansas City and St. Louis. It sounds fun! Be safe!
