Thrifty Finds and What About That Emily & Jef!

I will admit it - I am a hopeless romantic.  There, I said it.  I try each
season of the Bachelor or Bachelorette not to fall but each time I do! 
There's something about the show - frankly I find some things a little
wrong - however I am not judge and jury - simply a reluctant fan.

I had to watch the final episode!  Yeah, it's done - now my new mantra
will be "no more bachelor", "no more bachelor"..... check back with me
to see how I do...hahaha!

I did get a chance to drop by my favourite spot - Skip City as Mr. Biff
and I call it - it's our local recycling depot that also has a community shop.

I've noticed, of late, their prices are going up (like everything else) and
the thrill of finding something cool for next to nothing is waning.  Here's
what I got today:
 Sorry for the blurrrrrrrrrr....this little mirror will get a lovely
coat of white and be shabbied up.
 A cute little Ikea lamp - to paint and make pretty!
 Love these chunky shelf brackets - they are iron and already
shabbied up - I know just where I am going to use them!
And I love this little rustic tin - embossed with
"Heartful Garden"....love it!

I paid a total of $14 - I guess it's not bad but it's more than I thought it
would be (am I getting cheap?)

Hope you all had a great weekend and here's to romance!
Cheers to Emily & Jef!
