I am trying to do a really "good" job, painting all the trim and everything, now if that darned housing market turns (yeah, right...) we'll be ready!
This past week I actually made a few purchases for myself and the house, but first I sold stuff on Craigslist, storage bins from the kids' room - sold for $275... in one hour!
I decided to wear the ring over to another antique (mostly junk LOL) store and lookie what I found! The "50's Ford pickup truck" of sewing machines! I was starting to think the ring was my shopping good luck charm.
Hubby got home from work, laughed at it, then proceeded to sew on it - it works! Now he's pretty excited to get it all cleaned and shined up, just like that old pickup truck that he's always wanted...
- it may be my favorite thing ever!
Speaking of Mid-Century Modern, although it is my favorite design period I have rarely been able to obtain any of it due the high price of reproductions and complete unavailability and cost of the actual thing, until now....
Found at the Salvation Army the other day... (I was wearing the ring again!)
This Week's Purchases: -$146 (furniture, accessories)
Last Week's Purchases: -$196 (paint, painting supplies)
Sold via Craigslist: +$275 (sold kids' IKEA storage bins)
*net spent on house refreshing to date: $67.00
