Weekend in Pictures

This weekend has been sooo nice! The weather has been beautiful & my allergies haven't been acting up. Saturday morning we woke up and headed out to an auction. At first it didn't seem like there was a lot but after looking harder we found some pretty awesome deals!

Seth got a tackle box full of fishing gear & I got a mirror with hooks. You know how auctioneers like to clump junk into groups so when you bid on one thing you get a ton of junk as well? We got one of those, however it turned out better than I thought! I just wanted the mirror with the hooks but he also included a flashlight and a super ugly owl wall hanging. This giant frame was holding a red velvety material with the owl glued to the center. I just laughed when we won it but after looking at it some more I decided to punch out the velvety center and tear off the owl. The owl almost matches another wall owl that I bought a couple weeks ago at a garage sale. Just painted differently and is facing the opposite direction. Awesome! So now I have a pretty frame that can be painted and an owl to match my other owl!




I found this lacy table cloth for 50 cents at a garage sale. I'm not sure if I will keep it there or use the material for something else.

The ugly to awesome owl hanging & the lacy table cloth weren't the best deals of the day though! We got this kitchen island for $13! It looks like it was hardly used. We only had to scrub some dirt off the top. Seth looked the same island up online and found it for sale for $119 at Walmart... awesome deal!!


See my awesome tea towels from Jamie?? :)


I wore my awesome fabric covered button earrings from Vividot that I won over at the our.city.lights blog to church today! I also have 2 other pairs of earrings and 2 rings. She also threw in extra buttons and a keychain! Every piece is sooo pretty! If you haven't already you must check out her shop!


A couple pictures from church.


After church we drove to Columbia for lunch at Olive Garden & to meet up with Jill & Jacob and their cute little daughter at Barnes & Noble. (By the way I don't really ride like that. I just put my feet up for the photo! :) )

I also want to let you know that I am now a contributor to The Nocturnal Nest blog. If you are an owl lover you must check out this blog for your owl fix!

How was your weekend? Did you do anything fun?

I am so envious of your finds! My weekend, unfortunately, was lacking one of my favorite things (sleep) and heavy in my least favorite: working at Target. Hopefully soon I will be rewarded with some leisure time.
