The Monday Morning "Goodwill Hunting" Report!

Hi, cuties!! How was your weekend? You'll have to excuse me if I'm dragging here a bit today. The Hubster and I were strong-armed into ripping out wall-to-wall carpeting, not to mention about a gazillion staples and carpet tack strips. My darling mum-in-law decided to pull out the carpet in her master bedroom and, being the crafty little Scottish lady she is, she lured us in with crispy bacon, biscuits and honey, sausage, and stewed tomatoes. Before we knew it, we had tools in hand and cramps in our knees.

But, while the guys were moving the heaviest furniture in the world, The Girl Child, along with my sis-in-law and my niece, managed to get some Goodwill Hunting in!

"Goodwill Hunting" Plus a Bonus Before & After!

Hi, guys!! Thanks for letting me have a Mental Health Monday! We were incredibly busy this weekend. Lots of fun stuff, but just too much for one weekend!

Friday evening, we had to drop off The Girl Child to go to Girl Scout camp, then head to a Mouse Races fundraiser for some friends, then we stopped in to see another friend's new band. Saturday, I did manage to squeeze in some Goodwill Hunting, but then we had yet another friend's last band gig, so it was a second late night. Then, of course, Sunday, we had to pick up The Girl Child after our weekly Sunday morning with the mum-in-law, then head to a fantastic Superbowl party. Fun weekend, but I'm getting too old to be burning the candles at both ends!

But, check out this beauty that I managed to snag between events!

The Monday Morning "Goodwill Hunting" Report

Happy Monday, peeps!! How was your weekend? Weather-wise, we ran the gambit from an ice-covered driveway Sunday morning to expectations of 70 degree weather today! It's just bizarre, isn't it?

I had an unexpectedly awesome thrifting weekend, though! The gods of Thrifty Architecturalness were definitely in my corner when I headed out Saturday. I posted this sneak-peek on my FACEBOOK page Saturday:

So, now I get to show you what all I found! Including one of the rare flat-out disagreement pieces between The Hubster and I. I can't wait to see if you agree with me or him. (Hint: I'm right.) LOL

Hi, my darlings! I know, I know. It's Monday. There's not much help for it. LOL So, grab a cup of coffee or tea, pull up a chair, and I'll show you what I did this weekend!

I guess I should be excited that I found a solid, well-built coffee table, but the fact that I had to buy one at all is all kinds of aggravating. I'll tell you about that in a sec. But I'm super-excited about two of my other purchases this weekend!

Monday "Goodwill Hunting" Report & 2012 Wrap-Up

Hi, my darlings!! This is the last day (hopefully), I'm going to be flat-out behind on my posts. LOL I'm slowly but surely getting caught up after being out-of-commission for two weeks, but with the start of the new year, I'm also just slammed with all kinds of real life stuff clamoring for my attention. It's been tough finding the time to get caught up!

That being said, I managed to squeeze in all my thrift stores this weekend, but it was SLIM PICKINS! OMG!

The Monday Morning "Goodwill Hunting" Report (Tuesday Edition)

Hey, guys, I'm glad to be back with you. I know the events of last week are still weighing heavily on the hearts of all of us across the country. For me, there is some comfort in routines and hobbies and projects. So, with that, I'm here with the Monday Morning Goodwill Hunting Report - Tuesday edition!
I finally had to go out this weekend to get some serious Christmas shopping done. I've been putting it off and putting it off because I hate regular shopping - like at malls and stores and all that. I knocked a huge chunk of it out and I rewarded myself with my thrift-store stops. And I got lucky with some great finds, including something perfect for the MASTER BEDROOM!

The Monday Morning "Goodwill Hunting" Report

Hi, gang!! I'm sorry this post is late! I'm SO behind today!! This weekend, I was really busy working on some projects in the Master Bedroom, plus my mum-in-law was sick. So, we ran some errands for her on Saturday and, on Sunday, everyone pitched in to do the cooking for her weekly Sunday Fry (which is when the entire family goes to her house for Sunday breakfast). Then, we had to to go the funeral parlor last night. Getting this post written up just completely slipped my mind!

Anyhoooo, I did get some Goodwill Hunting done this weekend! It was a decent haul, not epic, but pretty dang good!

Monday's "Goodwill Hunting" Report

Hi, guys!! Oh my gosh, I'm glad to be back! I was SUCH a bad blogger last week. The first part of my week, I was in pain and then got sick towards the middle of the week. I felt like crap! Finally, I just decided to start fresh this week, so here I am! And I'm so glad you are, too! Love you guys!

I was looking forward to a relaxing weekend before Turkey Day, but right off the bat, Saturday morning, my mom-in-law (whose kitchen I remodeled over this past summer) called and said that the dishwasher we had bought her twenty years ago had finally died. If you remember, when we did her budget kitchen makeover, that black dishwasher was a dark spot in an otherwise bright and cheery kitchen, so I can't say I was too bummed to hear it was time for a new one.

The Monday "Goodwill Hunting" Report

Hi, y'all!! I'm so glad to see you! How was your weekend? Did you enjoy your "extra" hour of sleep (for those of you in the states)? I have to admit to another dorkism - I reminded myself several times on Saturday that I needed to set the clocks back. I normally get up on Sunday, grab a cup of coffee, and set the clocks. However, this time, even after reminding myself several times, I woke up Sunday and immediately thought my cellphone was screwed up. So I rebooted it three times before I remembered that I had to reset all the clocks in my house. Duh. LOL

We had a fun Saturday, but I was tired and cranky after having to drop The Girl Child off at school at 6:30am to catch a bus to a state Student Council convention. I was in desperate need of new socks, I couldn't get back to sleep, so off to the shops I went. I did manage undergarments, (you're welcome, World), but the rest of my day was spent like this. Dammit, jammie pants are comfortable!

(The Hubster threatened to turn me in to The People of Walmart website. I didn't even realize the man knew how to work his phone camera that quickly. But, I will have my revenge...mwuhahahaha!)

The "Goodwill Hunting" Monday Morning Report

Ermagerd!!! I'm SO glad you stopped by! I have GOT to tell you - I had one of the BEST thrifting weekends EVER! I probably spent more than I should have, but the stuff this weekend was just too good to pass up!

I purposely didn't put my most favorite find in the collection picture up there! I'm saving that one for last! :)

Goodwill Hunting Monday Report

Well, for the first time in awhile, *I* had a good weekend thrifting!! For the last several weeks, all the good finds at the shops had been for my husband, or one of my kids, or even for my mother-in-law! Finally, this weekend, I made some good finds for ME!

Tallying Up The Weekend Haul - Goodwill Hunting

Hey, there! Hope everyone had a great weekend! Here, the weather is definitely cooler and it's moving into Fall. We had highs in the 70s and I'm LOVING it!!! October is my FAVORITE month with my FAVORITE holiday!

I didn't get to do my Goodwill runs this weekend, which is kind of bugging me. I have this little voice in the back of my head, whispering that the most awesome thingy ever was snapped up by someone else. LOL But it's OK. It's not like I came home empty handed!
