Shopping!

I had saved about $600 from my pay at H&R Block with which to get furniture.  I figured it might be enough to get me a dining room table and chairs, and hopefully a small dresser as well.  I asked my friend, Judy Boldt, a thrift shopper extraordinaire and the president of my Wisconsin fan club, to take me thrift shopping.  She has spent the last two days taking me to thrift stores from Sturgeon Bay to Sister Bay.

We started out at Habitat for Humanity's Restore and I got a table and a whole bunch of chairs so I can entertain.

I also got a dresser there with a mirror, but since our bedroom is all torn up, the dresser is currently in the garage.

I think this carpet was also from there.  That place was a treasure trove.

And today I got a little end table for the guest room/sewing room.

I’ve gotten a ton of little stuff as well:  wall hangings, towels, sheets, valances, waste baskets, paint, silk flowers…the list goes on and on.  And there’s still money for many of the other things on my list.

I also got to spend time today with Rosanne Curran from Wagon Trail Campground.  It’s been a fun couple of days!
