Sharing Some Firsts and Finds....

As life tends to do, plans changed yesterday rather quickly...But for the better...Not only did we take the enrollment paperwork to the DayCare, but we also took little Sara for her first day...She only stayed for 3 hours but had lots of fun playing with the other children...

This meant for the first time in 2yrs I was able to shop in peace YAY....I looked and browsed and looked some more...Had a nice quiet lunch with my husband at the new Chinese buffet restaurant in town....It was a lovely 3 hours.

What made it lovelier was the couple of
bargains I found for the house.

I got this set of shelves, perfect for our french bedroom for just $10...Originally priced at $14 but the haggler in me just could not pay that much...The fact it was already painted white but a huge draw...One less thing I had to paint *grin*

And then what could be better than finding this Candle Sconce for just $2 ???

Finding it as a set of 2 at that price....I am not sure if they will get painted black or white just yet, or even which room of the house they will end up in, I just knew they were waiting for me to come along and buy them...They are just too lovely.

Linking to My Romantic Home for Show and Tell Friday.

Thank you for stopping by....
