It’s still me

Good Evening Wonderers.

Boy have I been busy. I had to put everyone down just so I can tell you about the last couple of days.

Yesterday Brent and I went to a 5 and Dime store. It goes to show how time changes because he asked me before we went in if everything cost five dollars and ten cents. Of course I laughed no not like everything costs a dollar at the Dollar Tree. It is a thrift store. I went in looking for a desk for the office. One I would lock my things away when I wasn’t in there. It was the first time I went to this store and OMG. I was in thrift store heaven! It seemed as if the place never ended. I would turn and there would be another whole section of treasure. There was so much stuff I was taking mental notes to come back and look at this and that. My husband wasn’t with me so I was in no rush. I was free to browse and I did. Here is what I found. A painting by Armando for the foyer. I love the colors. It matches my new drapes

Now back to my desk. Well I didn’t see one! I did see something that caught my eye and I contemplated how I would get it home. I envisioned flattening all my tires and needing new shocks and started to walk away when I heard from a distant, “We deliver!” OMG! OMG! OMG! I love this store. If you are ever in the area and you like thrift stores, junking or treasure hunting you have to add this store to your list:
5 & Dime Thrift Store
1464 E. Main Street
Rock Hill, SC

Here is what I found for my office. Note: my husband is going to kill me when he sees it. It’s here now and it’s Minnnnneeeeesssss!

My new office/art/craft center!

It fits all of my criteria. Drawers for storage and filing, easy access and I can lock it. Bonus: when I’m not using it I can close it up and the office will be none the wiser of the mess that is inside. Want to see the insides wonderers?

      • I am keeping my eyes open for a class. I have a friend whose hubby used to teach art in a middle school and he recently retired….and he is taking some art classes nearby. I need to put the word out that I want to learn! Meanwhile, I look at that blank canvas you sent me and wonder what will be there someday. Water and sunsets I am sure, beacause that is what I am always drawn too. (Or Happy Trees…. ). Have fun with that palette knife!

      • I look forward to seeing your masterpiece some day soon. I got a project going on with the knives. I’ve bit off more than I can chew on this one, but I’m known for being adventurous. 😀

      • I’m still working on my latest quilt. My plan for today is to get the binding made and stitched down to at least one side! (Meanwhile I have things to get ready for a meal at church; chicken & dumplings going on the stove shortly, bread rising and baking must all be done BEFORE I can go out to the garage and sew!)

  1. OMGosh Neicie! That is absolutely awesome! I love it! Wow….. the painting is beautiful too. I have to visit, besides seeing my BFF – I would love to go check out the thrift store! They hold such hidden treasures. Here in Philly, I’ve done to the one off 53rd & Walnut – great stuff. But unfortunately, they don’t deliver! Let’s hope the treasures I find with you, can fit in my suitcase! LOL I’m sure you have a fun filled week – can’t wait to hear about D’s reactions. I’ll keep wondering. 🙂
