The Joy Of Saturday

Happy Saturday everyone!

I can't even begin to tell you how exciting it is to spend a whole day with my man - the sweetest, coolest, mostest lovingest hubby ever! And before we tackle the longest to-do list ever, I wanted to share with you a recent find from the Fancy Store {AKA: Goodwill Outlet}.

If you have never been to a Goodwill Outlet before, it's so worth the effort to go online and find one in your area. Next week I'll be sharing some of my top finds from that store, tips for how to shop there,  and some more info on just how wonderful it really is {everything is sold by the pound... THE POUND! oh happy day!}}

Last week I found this treasure. I think that it may have been one of those tabletop things that holds plastic cups and bowls or some kind of non spinning spice rack. Do you have one like this? Am I right on either accounts?
All I need are containers that fit the unusually small holes.
Can you guess what we'll be eating lots of in the coming days? heehee!

Anyhow, when I spotted this little gem in the bins I practically dove in for it. It had potential - as a pen/pencil holder on my office desk. And since we have decided to change the theme in the office, this seemed like a great place to start - metals, black and white. I'll expand on that as we go along decorating and painting. But for now, I took a spin around the house to see what other wonders I could find for my new space.

And found these in the living room. They were also from the Fancy Store. Won't they be lovely in my newly revamped space? I am so excited for our new office look. Hopefuly we'll be able to reveal it soon!

Getting my Spring on!

What spaces are you busily revamping, repainting, reorganizing or  re-staging?

  8. I am revamping everything in our new place but am currently obsessed with the office! Im a bit overhwelmed by the blank palette but hope I get the courage to splash some paint on it so to speak!

  9. Thanks for linking up to Shop the House Sunday! Love that little Imagine pencil caddy! I love that "fancy" store, Goodwill, too! Looks like you have a good one to shop!

  10. The metal thingamajig you found looks like something that would be used to hold glass canning jars while they are being boiled so they won't move around and break. I love that you are repurposing it.

  11. Awesome finds!!
