Back to school time has been especially crazy this year. I will be thankful next year, because I will be finished with my masters. We have been in school for a month now, and I think I am at a point to where I will be able to post on at least a bi-weekly basis.
So, what have I been up to... as far as crafting goes- not much regrettably. I am planning on trying some things out tomorrow. Have my fingers crossed.
But, I did come across a GREAT thing today. So, I was at one of my favorite kind of local blogs (Frugal In Franklin) and she had mentioned a huge rummage sale happening this weekend. Hubby and I didn't get there until about an hour before closing. The signs outside said "Everything 1/2 price". Score!! About 5 minutes after we got there, the ladies made an announcement that they were going let you fill a bag for $5!!! Score again!
-12-15 new books for my classroom library (at over 850 books, I think I am a bit obsessed)
-the cutest bunny planter (he has 2 baskets- one on each side of his back
-2 frames (one still has a 7.99 ross sticker!) One is round and perfect for a project I have in mind- the other is 8x10 and will hold my free Walgreen's photo.
-stoneware coster for beside my bed (which I have REALLY needed)
-bag of gummy bracelets (at least 100) was going to give away at school, but not sure with the message on them.
-Don't mess with Texas mug (has 5.99 sticker)
-Stuffed Tiger (school mascot) my cats are already stalking it
-Cute large decorative plate (thinking about painting it sometime soon)
-small energy teaching kit (for my treasure box)
-small shower head still NIP (Our old emergency one broke recently- thought we would keep for an emergency :) after we had to take baths for 2 days, thought it would be handy to have one)
-vintage ball mason jar with lid
- and a small cat pillow for catnip
For $5.00!!!! I was planning on buying the frames and the Texas mug before the sale mention, as well as the vintage mason jar :). The sale just pushed me into getting the other things. I loved the plate, but didn't want to pay $2.00 for something I would just paint.
Will post pics soon... My camera cord somehow got left at work.
So, check out all of the great finds over at Southern hospitality!
