New toys, new stuff

Good Monday afternoon all!! Hope you all are doing well. Spring will be here soon and I'm so looking forward to the nice days again!

I have gotten a couple of new toys since my last post. First off is this:


It's a Dell Duo. It's a mini computer and then it also turns into a tablet! Even has an e-reader on it. Love it!!

The second thing is this and I have been faithfully using it!! No clothes hanger yet!

Last week I went to the Estate store and got the following:

I love this and Spaz likes it too....he want's!! This was only $40.00!

Here's a better pic of it without Spaz.

And I also got this crock piece

And then Saturday, I finally made it to my fav store..The Whistle Stop and got some things.


I love this old mirror. The sides fold in.


And so far so good, haven't gotten sick from being back outside!! Cough is much much better. My mom was just here and she is sick so now I have to get the Lysol out and hopefully I don't get it. I'm having my 50th birthday party on Friday and I sure don't want to be sick! Thanks mom by the way...ha!! Thanks for the well wishes everyone by the way!!

I also received my chicken nesters from Carol over at Firecrackerkid. Love her and hubby's stuff that they make!


I found the following at Goodwill awhile back and realized that I never showed them.

I love these candlestick holders. How can I tell if they are forged iron or not? I heard that if they are that they might be worth some money?? Anyone know? I wouldn't sell them anyway.

Let's see...what else?? Oh, I made me some prim rabbits to hang. Now don't!!


And this picture is my last group of cross stitching that I got done and all have sold already except for the little rabbit one.


Guess I need to get busy and get more made!!

Well that's all I have for now. I ordered some copper tile for my backsplash and that was just delivered and then I'm also going to get some of the granite paint that someone had posted about on their blog that they used on their countertops so I'm going to try that and then hopefully this kitchen will be done....finally!! I'll show pics whenever that might be...ha!!

Hope you all have a great week!!

Awesome finds Brenda... love them all. Can't wait to see what you do in the kitchen.

My fav is the highchair with the cat... that is too funny. They just have to inspect everything don't they?

Have a great week.

Hugs, Deb

Hi Brenda:) What a lot you've had goin' on gal. I didn't know you were down with a cold. I would've if I'd been more diligent in visiting wouldn't I! LOL. Well, I'm glad you're feeling better hon:) Gotta get better for that birthday party!
That is a beautiful old high chair and Spaz looks so darling in it:) Imagine all the old smells he was finding on it.
Hey, those chicken nesters are upside down... LOL.
Granite paint for the countertop huh? Does it come in different colors?
I so desparately need one of those clothes racks you got there:) You keep walkin' on that thing now and you'll feel so much better.

Jody said...

Wow have you gotten some great goodies!! I love your new tucks and bunnies too. I will be checking in with ya on how that granite paint works on your counter tops...will love to see the finished product!
Have a great birthday and party hon!

Ooooooh, I can't wait to see this countertop paint job. Our master bath counter is pink and I would love to see that different. Our guest bath is blue--another mistake.
Please post when you are done.
Love the crock jug/jar.
I took my highchair out to the summer kitchen. I'm not sure how this will work for me. It might be something that will have to go next garage sale. *sigh*
Looks like you've been having an awesome time, shopping. We now have a Goodwill just 14 miles from here. I'm pretty excited about that!

BumbleBeeLane said...

I'm loving your first goodie.I want one sooo bad wanna swap? LoL..The high chair is so wonderful as well as your other goodies.I need one of those treadmills for me and to hook the furbabies up for extra walks.For the iron if it's forged you'll see marks were they striked it.If it's smooth or a little rough it's molded or sandcasted.Look for marks that look like hammer marks to tell the differnce.Happy Birthday again sweetie! Hugs!~Amy

I have not heard of the Dell Duo, what a neat toy! I hope you are having fun with it.

Spaz is so cute sitting in the high chair, that is so funny! What a good buy on it. Great finds!

Your little prim rabbits are cute, I think you did a great job on them! You always do a great job with your stitching and always selling them quickly, good for you girl!
