More on the Apartment

Hello! Sorry, this was suppose to get done yesterday! It has just been one headache (literally) after another and now the fibromyalgia is showing it's ugly head. But enough of that! Here are a couple close ups of the apartment makeover. This whole makover was done on the cheap. The wall hanging is from Bed Bath and Beyond...this was the most expensive piece...with a coupon it came to $40-ish.

Here you see an amber bowl. I picked this up when I was shopping, with Michelle from Treasure the Moment, at the Salvation Army. I think it cost $5. The picture frame I had and the tall glass apothecary I found on clearance for $7 at Marshall's. I still need to find some filler for it.
This pitcher I, also, found on clearance at Marshall's for only $3!!! Couldn't beat the price!

I will be posting more pictures from our trip soon. I'm off to pull my lunch out of the oven. Have a great day! It's really fall like here...62 degrees and rain...yuck!

Hi Kim,

That's a really pretty pitcher!

I LOVE that plate wall-hanging thing and I'm so glad you finally got it 'cause I know how much you loved it, too! What do you think you're gonna put in your apothecary jar? I'm not sure about mine yet. That bowl sure looks nice there :)

It was cold and rainy here today, as well. At least it stopped raining for the girls going to the football game, though.

Have a great weekend! Talk to ya soon :)

Hi again Kim! (I told you I would be on here too much today!) Love that little pitcher and what a great price!!! Darn I hate hearing the fibro is acting up too! What the heck did you do in Chicago!!!!(just kidding!) I'll bet its that 62 weather and I wish it would come this way; can't take much more of this heat!lol Relax this weekend - Sincerely, Jeannette


Sorry that you aren't feeling well...the amber bowl is perfect for fall and I can see the fall colored M&M's ... and some fallish flowers in the pitcher.
Have a great weekend.
