New Projects

There was a HUGE shade on this that was WAY ugly.  

I have a new project I want to share. A few weeks ago Mindy and I went thrifting antiquing in Superior, Miami, and Globe. What an adventure I think we left a few items on the shelves for others to purchase. 1 of my favorite purchases with a lamp that I disassembled and made into something I don't know quite what to call it but I love it and it in my bedroom and I have to share it.

New. . .

I found a new store. . . IT IS AMAZING, it is called Ultimate Consignment.  You can find anything at this  store.  When you want to get rid of something and not deal with ebay or craigslist yourself.  This is the answer.  So here were some of the finds we discovered yesterday. . .a stripper pole

a table that is a giant bellows

vintage tv/stereo cabinet with the original remote

a couch made for Edith Anne

I cant wait to go back!

Well the Boi has certainly surprised me. . .I never thought he would do any thing like this . . .Mr Conservative becoming Mr Rock Star????

Friday night was Homecoming at school.  They played one song during the half time show.

Also on 2 occasions they have performed at The Hardrock Cafe

Warning. . .my camera doesn't produce the best videos.  Sound isnt the greatest but you get the idea. . .the music they play is there own.  No cover songs!

This mama's proud!  I promise they sound better in person than these awful videos!

Halloween Preparations

Yesterday I had some fall fun!  Started the morning dropping the boi off for an Eagle Project for another scout in our troup!. . . then off for me time. . . .This week I discovered a new (its been open a year and I had no idea) scrap store. . . .Craft Fusion. . .  - go check them out, some good classes.

So here is what I did . . . .yesterday morning

 A soldering class. . .fun . . .fun

Mine is the one on the LEFT

Then from Chandler. . .I drove to Glendale to help with Cousins in the Kitchen . . . .to help cuz Dana, Auntie Bev and sis's Amy and Kelly can 20lbs of tomatoes. . .When I got there the last of the ?? number of jars were in the water bath and ran out of propane. . .had to bring those indoors and they had just put in the pressure cooker the first jars of Chili. . .they were very productive. . . .B'na was playing with the boi's; Jack, Andy and Eddy. . .they are sooo cute!  Sorry no pics yet of the canning. . . I do have pics of last weeks adventure into canning apple butter

2 weeks before this we canned 25lbs of Hatch chili's

What is our next adventure into domestic divas?????

Shopping Trip

Today, Sis and I went shopping/couponing.   We hit our normal 4 local stores, Frys, Bashas, Albertsons and Safeway.  This wasn’t a huge shopping trip, just some good sales. 
We got 8lbs ground beef, 6packs of cat treats, 3 lbs of spreadable butter, 6 Grands biscuits, 4 boxes of 18ct Super Tampax, 4 Philadelphia cooking creams, 4 packages of bacon, 3 bottles of ketchup, 3 bottles of mustard, 1 glucose meter, 36 eggs, 2 jars pickle relish, 5 cans beans, 4 bags of croutons, 5 ½ gallons milk, bag of Parmesan cheese, 4 packages of sausage links, 8 ears of corn and 2 bottles of laundry detergent.

The total sales was $233.20, we paid. . . $81.43.  That’s a savings of 65% overall.  Yeah!  Who says coupons aren’t worth it??  Not me.  This wasn't the best of our shopping trips, but it was still a good one.  Promise to post more!
