Another wonderful week at yard sales. I actually turned up my nose at these brand new, Pottery Barn kids white organic cotton matelasse coverlets because they were $15 a piece. Yes, passed them up even though I was looking for two white, matelasse spreads to match the full size that we already have in the girls room. That is until I came home and saw how much one twin size coverlet retails for ($145). Then I headed to the bank for some cash, went back and snatched up the matching set for a total of $30.These little white shoes for $.50 may not look all that exciting to you, but to Savannah (4) who has been patiently wearing black shoes to church each Sunday, these were an answer to prayer.Remember our train loving Colby? His birthday is coming up next so when I saw this brand new, still packaged train cake pan from Williams-Sonoma for $5? Well, hopefully his cake turns out as lovely as this one. I also got the tea ball (free), new oven thermometer ($1) and new set of 11 Williams-Sonoma cookie cutters ($1).All these clothes for me ($5). Two instructional videos, two instructional books, 4 packages of unopened paint brushes, plus several that were opened, an exacto knife, practice sheets that you paint directly on in order to practice your strokes, more than a dozen bottles of acrylic paint and a tub to mix the paint in ($2.50). I’ve been telling the girls that I will paint flowers and butterflies on their walls for a long time. I think this may be the best way to accomplish that feat. I don’t think that I could beat the price!
