~* a giveaway *~

Firecrackerkid Primitives is having a giveaway. But don't bother entering... I just know I am going to win. I have been wanting one of these bowl racks forever!!! I have a wooden bowl that my parents gave me for Christmas many years ago that I want to display and I know it would look great on one of these racks. In our family we use our wooden bowls for a cabbage salad that we make. I don't know where the recipe came from or how long it has been in the family but we chop it in a wooden bowl. People have said it can be made in a food processor but it doesn't come out the same. So one year my parents bought all 4 of us these wooden bowls for Christmas. I think they were about $80 a piece. But I love mine and I use it to chop my cabbage salad and I would love to display it in a rack like this. So that is why I NEED to win this. Ok? Thanks for understanding! Lol!
Have a great day!

~* a little trip to the Goodwill *~

As I told you yesterday, everything at Goodwill was 50% off so Dan and I took a trip over since we are still looking for some end tables. We didn't find any furniture that we were interested in, but I did find these goodies. I got 2 cotton dish clothes, one for .30 and one for .50. The spool of cotton yarn for $1.00 (they usually go for around $6.00 even at Walmart). The tissue cover was only $1.50, I am not sure what I am going to do with the color, probably paint it, and I may keep the heart since it has a heart cut out on the top, but paint it a deep dark red. And the shelf was only $2.00, I am definitely going to paint it, most likely black and use it in my sewing room for my spools of thread over my sewing machine. So all in all I spent only $5.62 with tax. It was a good day even if I didn't find any end tables. That means I can go back again!!!
Have a great day!

~* whew it's been a long time comin' *~

Wow, I know I haven't posted in a while... I have been so busy with meetings and cleaning and snow. Yeah, we've had snow, and lots of it.
I hope you all had a lovely Valentine's Day. Mine was nice. It started with heart shaped pancakes, roses, a singing card, chocolates and then I made a dinner of filet mignon with mushroom wine sauce, gingered carrots with dates, whole grain roasted garlic rice, spring salad with sun dried tomato vinaigrette, and for desset chocolate mousse.
Oh, what a day! Anyways, Dan and I made a quick trip to Goodwill today, I got a few goodies (50% off everything today!!!) and I will show you all a before and after later!
Gotta go get some housework done.
Have a great day!
