Big Lot Beach Chairs and Thrift Store Finds
Last week I saw these chairs at Big Lots and left them in the store. They were $6 ea and more than I wanted to spend. Sometimes I am real thrifty. There were 3 colors. This sage green, a soft magenta and a really pretty blue. Yesterday, I decided to go back and buy a pair.
This is how they come.
It's easy to make a small pillow for the seat to cover the hole. Haven't done that yet.
Dang it! I love these chairs. Aren't they perfect? I guess I'm headed back to Big Lots to get at least another pair. Can't you picture a few couples at the beach sitting around a bonfire. Just like in "Why did I Get Married, Too?" or was that the first one?
"Honey, did I tell you they are having a modeling conference here in town? I think we are going to do a fundraising fashion show." (Halle)
"Good. That means you will be in town for a bit." (Diego)
"Well, I have to run to the store. I want to make us a nice dinner, since I will be tied up the rest of the week." (Halle)
"Do you want me to come with you?" (Diego)
"I am always down for the company, but you don't have to." (Halle)
These two seem to really be settling into their relationship. I don't think Diego has to worry about Max.
I found the Barbie bakery house for $1.
It's missing a lot, but this will really come in handy.
Found some kid clothes.
And a really nice kimono that one of my Asian men will sport.
Found a beautiful mini wedding frame for Rod and Danielle's wedding photo. I wonder who gave them this as a wedding gift.
I love this little piece.
The table is mine, but I wanted to show the scale of the two items I found.
Guess who else was there? Jo! I'm not sure if she will stay in Morristown. I love her, but I almost don't want to open her. I will see what Fern from Charlotte Web thinks. Hmmm. I'm sure she's staying. See how quickly I can change my tune. Oh, I also found an articulated Brandy doll and a Black GI Joe. Just about everything I bought was $1 or less, except for the green planter and the Jo doll. She was still a good deal at $14. I was thinking about the kids.
