Taking friends to the airport...

So, last weekend one of my best friends called and asked if we could take her and her family to the airport.  Sounded like another trip to the big city :)

Honestly, I wasn't planning on spending a lot.  I have a few things in mind that I am still looking for, but not much.

Well, as we were driving around (after dropping our friends off), what did I spot from the highway...

Yardsale!  With temps in the high 50's- and it being gloomy &  overcast- these people were brave!!!  I ended up getting a few things (2 candle holders, a tall column candle holder, a rusty cross yard/wall display,  and some other misc things) for all the cash I had ($4.00).  

Have a few projects in mind for everything, but here is the first one.  I had been looking for something for the brown & creme striped table I posted about recently.  

Well, I forgot to take a real before picture, so picture this pic- but with the holder being black instead of brown.  Threw in some orange tealights that I had laying around.   I liked it, but thought it needed a little something.

Enter the ribbon I have been saving for a special occasion.  Love it!  

Then, here is the kitty who hates it because it is taking up the spot she normally likes during the day.  

Thanks for checking out my post :)
