This lovies is my other 40.00 purchase… Who wouldn’t pick this beauty up for 40.00?
mmmmmhmmmmmmm……..
Well…… She didn’t come home with me. One reason.
I had nowhere to put her …
Was I disappointed? No, not at all!
We’re in the process of purchasing our first home,  this gives me a challenge and something to look forward to!!!
So… I told the manager that the dresser wasn’t going home with me… and that I was sure I could find 40.00 worth of treasures to take its place…. She kindly agreed and an hour later I had a basket full of glory!!!!

More Bowls!!! and the frame in the background is a hint to why I selected these…
013
Two Chairs…. Of course they’re getting painted… I thought they were kind of cool
and for 5.00 why not? As to what I’m going to do with them… Don’t know yet…
014
A pillow.. that my husband hates BTW…
016
Another dish that I plan to drop my necklaces in…
017
These are super cute!!! and I got every one they had… I plan to use them for giveaways… I know a lot of dolls who have been looking for cuteness to hold their rings and brooches in!!!

Milk glass
Now about the tarnish… After reading about the magic a little cleaner can do to some old neglected thrift store silver and brass on Centsastional Girl’s blog.. I’ll never pass up a platter or bowl again…

See for yourselves…..
before….
silver bowl before polish
after….
bowl after

YEAH…. SHE DID THAT!!!
mmmmmmmmhmmmmmmm…..
and as for the dresser…….

Now see, I wouldnt have the willpower to leave that in the store. However, when you have stuff in your home or have a bigger goal...like a HOUSE...youve got to restrain yourself.

And the things your replaced it with aint to shabby!
