Tonight I decided to go to rite aid because I had some up rewards to use. I did all my shopping, left and then found a coupon for the candle and the reed I saw there on sale. The reeds and the candle were on clearance for 50% off. But, the candle was originally $15.99 and the reeds were $10.99. I was surprised when she rang them up and they came to about $9.00. I had a coupon for the candle that was $4/1 (I think this was from the pg 8/29) and a coupon for the reed set for $2/1. My total after coupons- $1.13. I used a $1.00 up reward and only paid .13!!!

I have seen wall plates everywhere this year. So, I thought I would try myself. It was actually very easy. Just find some plates that you love, hot glue some ribbon on the back and tie, viola! Be careful when hanging however, I dropped one of my english abby plates:( But, just love the way my picture wall has turned out!
Here are some treasures I found this week. Some of them are being redone and sold at a local craft show, so excited!
My mom purchased this chair for me at a garage sale. It is an antique, and for only $10 a steal! This one, I am keeping for my bedroom. I am going to also look up the name on the chair, It is dated 1887 s bent and brothers. Wonder if that means anything.
Cost: $10 for chair
$6.88 for the spray paint
I forgot to take a before picture of this. It was a dark navy blue with a board on the back. It is a very good size, and still had the price tag on the back of $36. It was also labeled a calender holders. I spray painted it aqua and distressed it and am thinking about turning into a kitchen chalkboard. This is one of my items going to the craft show. Will post more pictures when complete.
Cost: $1.99 for the frame
