What I Have Been Up To

Not a whole lot going on around here right now. The weather has been beautiful!

Friday and Saturday morning I went to several garage sales. I bought this box for $1.



I love the details on the handle.



It's in perfect condition.



Now I just have to figure out what to do with it!

I also bought this chair for $2 to use in my craft room. Here Cocoa demonstrates how to sit in it!



I had just enough material left from my dining room chairs to cover it. I didn't do the best job but it's good enough!



I also bought this bracelet, necklace and earrings for $1.50! I kept the earrings to wear. The bracelet I took apart to use the beads for other things. The necklace I am in the process of making two bracelets out of!



We have been going out to various places to use our metal detector. Found quite a few coins. Some of which look like they have been under ground for a while!





And this pin we found by a swing set at a local park. Someone may be missing this!



This weekend we have plans for another State Park, plus having the kids over for a end of summer barbecue!

That chair was a great find. And the cat likes it, so it's a hit! Thanks for visiting my blog. The animated black cat on the sidebar is very cute.

Hello Jeanette!
Thanks for stopping by to say hello...it's nice to 'meet' you. You did good with your garage sale-ing...love that box and the jewelry is nice too. You did a great job of covering that chair...cocoa loves it too LOL! I'd love to have a metal detector although here on the farm it would have gone off all the time with all the metal people have buried over the years. It would be fun to take it to the beach! I hope you and your family have a wonderful long weekend...take care. Maura :)
