Hey ya all! I was just over visiting the Nester at The Nesting Place and she has invited us all to a linkie party on Monday July 13th! All you have to do is take a pic of any room or space in your house and then tell us all about what you paid! How fun is that!? Go on over to The Nesting Place for more detailed info and to grab her linkie party button. I am really excited because I love seeing what bargains are out there and what people have done with them to make them even better. I am hoping to be able to join as well though we will only be in our new home for like two days so not sure if I will have any one room completed but if not I will just take pics of my most favorite items and share where I am going to be putting them and how much I spent.
Off to finish up a few more errands! Have a great day ya all! I will be back later to see what is up next on Show Us Where You Live Friday over at Kellys Korner. By the way is there ANYBODY out there who can tell me how to use Mr Linky that would be great!! I paid my $5 last Friday and am yet to get how it works.

Then I saw this! I was soo excited!! Okay well she does not look exactly like this. Her legs have a few more turns on them and and she does not have 'BOSS' stamped on her nor did she have the $700 price tag that this 'BOSS' has! Needless to say she was allowed to come home with me because she was such a bargain and I can decide what color to stain her legs once I get a feel for the new color scheme.
As if the island was not enough something else caught my eye with a big ol' clearance tag on her. My heart skipped another beat because I have ALWAYS wanted one of these but a nicely made high quality one is way out of my range. I thought how nicely one would look with our new dining room table or in the foyer but I had found a nice black bench on Target online that I was getting ready to order next week once we officially arrived to our new nest which would have been lovely as well.
This is what my new favorite item is for the new nest! She does not have a cherry finish on her or any finish at all for that matter which makes her perfect. She does have one broken spindle but my father in law aka Papa said we can easily fix her up to look like new. She was originally $500 and I walked out the door under $200! $200 is pricey but if you figure I can fit three skinny people on it or two fluffy huggable people aka me and the hubby then it is well within range. Most chairs I have been looking at are at least $120 a pop. I would feel bad abt the money but if you all remember I had told hubby I was charging him for all the stress of last week while he was gone and well I cashed in that check today!HA!
So there ya have what we have been up to the past few days. Tomorrow I need to mail out a few orders and get the front tires changed out on the van. Any of ya all who have Odysseys have issues with the front tires wearing out quickly on the outer edges?? I am intrigued because I saw another van just like ours whose tires were just the same.
Anyways, ya all have a wonderful rest of the week and if I don't get a chance to get back on have a wonderful and safe 4th of July!
God Bless the USA!
