I Finally Got Some Batteries

I finally got me some batteries! So without further ado, I wanted to share some recent finds...

The first is the sleeper sofa that I found at Craig's list. A woman was selling it in Wexford which is about a half an hour away. They wanted ... are you ready for this ... $175. That's it! I thought I was going to have to convince Kenny the value of this couch but I didn't. I'm so pleased and the colors are perfect for my living room.

This picture is a little dark. I apologize for that. But it includes some Goodwill finds I got a while back. I love the vase ($2) which is probably 8 inches high and 6 inches wide and the Italian cookbook, still with the Barnes and Noble price tag of $8.99 on it, which I got for $3.99. The transferware plate reminds me of the Currier and Ives set of dishes my Nunnie had. I paid $1 for it! I found a courting candle, a small tin basin, and a hanging welcome tin each with a price tag of $.99. And the Footprints book I bought for Holly's dad for $3.

And this picture is just one of my favorites of Kenny and Me. I just love this picture of him. I can't really explain why, either. I just do. Isn't he handsome??

I'll be sure and share my latest finds at the new INDOOR FLEA MARKET that just opened in a later post. I found a ton of roosters for my kitchen and I only paid $12 for the whole lot of it. Plus I found a fireplace screen (made of HEAVY metal) that I want to redo. Kenny's building me a trunk/coffee table to hold all of my blankets. So, I'll have a whole bunch more to share later. In the meantime, have a great weekend everyone!!

I am so happy to see into your home now too Julie. It is so fun to be able to 'peek in a virtual window' at each other's homes. It also brings so much inspiration. I love your sleeper sofa. Such warm and cozy colors. Back home, you can all find such great bargains at thrift shops. We don't have that kind of luck often here. Everything looks wonderful but that transferware plate is a real treasure! I hope you will find a good place to set it out for the holidays. I remember you saying things are not safe from your cats.

Speaking of cats, I loved seeing yours! I used to have cats like that named Lappie and Odie.

You and Kenny look really happy together! You make a sweet couple.

Hope you are having a super weekend!

That Kenny of yours sure is a hunk!

I'll never understand why people want to get rid of almost new furniture like your sofa. It looks really pretty. And it's nice to see the kitties approve.

Great photo of the two of you, yes, Kenny is a VERY handsome guy! Where is the indoor flea market? My friends and I were supposed to go to the Rogers, Ohio flea market last Friday but canceled because of the rain. An indoor flea market sounds like heaven to me.

Awesome! Love your findings, wow, I wish we had Good will here and yardsales... The picture of you guys is so beautiful, thanks for sharing!

Christina said...

Congrats on your recent finds! Isn't that just the best! I'm on a mission to decorate my home is all previously owned stuff, that way I am not contributing to more new stuff being made using up more resources. Plus it is more creative that way and a whole lot cheaper! And that photo of you and Kenny really is very cute! ;)
Best wishes, Cece

Carrie said...

The sofa was a great find -- such a nice warm color and pattern.

Hi Julie, Your new sofa is great! Glad you found such a wonderful deal.

I love your newest finds. Where is the indoor flea market?

Thank you for always taking the time to visit me. You had wanted to know where the WOW outlet was, well it's in Greensburg, near Westmoreland Mall and the Goodwill store. Hope this helps.

Love, Kim
