More bargains! I'm on a roll.


Okay, my bad, I got this pretty little blue chair and ottoman from beside the dumpster at my apartment complex. But I checked her over really well, and there's nothing living in there, so it's alright. She's sturdy, and all her parts still work, she rocks. The biggest blemish, I think, is the cigarette burn that the remote is hiding. She doesn't smell like cigarettes, though, and though she's worn, she's totally serviceable. God is answering my prayers for furniture. I like the way she goes with what I already have. So far, I haven't paid a cent for this grouping, how great is that. And the longer that little loveseat sits in my living room, the more I wonder if a sofa wouldn't really be too big for that little living room. Especially after I bought in my ginormous TV from the Salvation Army, got at half price today. That thing is huge!



Now I did spend money for this, but isn't he cute! I was at the Goodwill, of course, and had in my mind that I needed some throw cushions. I noticed that last night, when I tried to lay on my loveseat, nowhere to put my head. So I saw this little cushion, such a pretty blue pattern, and nicely stuffed, only $2.99. So I grabbed it and walked all through the store with it and another little cushion, both totalling five bucks. I didn't even notice the rooster 'til I set it on the counter to pay for it! LOL I was surprised, I said "Well, look at that cute lil rooster! I didn't notice him til just now, I was going for the cute lil blue cushion!" The cashier thought that was funny, and told me a funny story of her own, which I've forgotten now. LOL Y'all know I love my roosters, but they're pretty much all in the kitchen, so now I guess one's wandered out into the living area. I like it!

Look, on another subject, did y'all see Big Brother tonight? Oh my gosh, Ragan about grossed me out! In the veto competition, they were looking for those CD's on the ground, and in that mud........ then to climb up to Otev, he stuck that nasty thing in his mouth! Yuck! Tim asked me, well where do you want him to put it, he needs his hands. I said, stick it in his pants, not in his mouth! Yeesh! So nasty. .......there, I'm done!

Y'all have a good one!

Great looking furniture. You could fix that ottoman with something crocheted - either cover just the burn or cover the whole top. :)

That looks really good, that blue chair and ottoman was a fantastic find. Ottomons are great, I tell ya, you need that for your feet. And yes, how very convenient that it goes with you other new stuff. Love your blue rooster pillow, but I was looking for a pic of that new tv. Half-price of what was the SA price? And does it work pretty well?

What great bargains. All you need to do is crochet a little flower to go over that burn mark or make some kind of covering for it. I know you'll come up with something creative.

I have actually been thinking the same thing... what am I gonna make to cover the little burn on the ottoman? I will make something.

Thanks so much for your wonderful comments on my son's birthday. Great chair and ottoman. Isn't it amazing how God takes care of us if we just allow Him to do so?

You do have an eye for bargains. We all love them especially if we can add something to make it our own. You'll come up with something to cover the mark, just give it a bit.

How fantastic!! My husband and I are always on the lookout for Free items, we have picked up many chairs and one couch that very same way. Where we live we have a thing going that if you are getting rid of something that still works put it beside the dumpster not inside. It is amazing how the stuff disappears. Keep your eyes open and good luck.
