Few pretties

I just got the most awesomest necklace in the whole wide world. I got it for $2 at a garage sale right down the road. I LOVE IT!

I got a few other things too. Wanna see? I really didn't get much today.

I snagged these flowers at HH for about a $1. ( still sucking)

I pulled them straight out of the foam they were in and jabbed them into this urn I had in my craft closet. I wanted to make one of these but I got lazy.

If you want to see how to make them check it out HERE.

I also got this for $1. Etched mirror and really nice wood.

What is it? It's a tic-tac-toe game. :)

I want to make new pieces for it (black Xs and wood grain Os) because these glass ones are breakable sea themed pieces (sand dollars and starfish). The kids are really enjoying it though, and it will be fun to have out around the holidays with cousins and friends near the fireplace. Maybe this will help the Honey layoff asking to put a TV in this room which I am totally against.

I've got it set up like this:

and I was trying to copy this layered look:

Which comes from my favorite living room of all time, HERE. (You must look at that room) but yeah, I'm not even close lol I still have my eyes open for wooden game boards constantly though. I may have to make my own soon. I'm wanting to make one into a small table top/side table.

I also got a velvety stuffed carrot and corduroy ear of corn that didn't photo well.

I don't know what to do with them, but they were too cute and only a few cents each. They will probably end up in Cutecumbers kitchen.

I never know how to end these so from now on my ending will go as follows..

That's all folks! <--so original. :P


  1. That necklace is CUTE!

    That living room is crazy! She has a latter in her living room! Looks nice though. :) My kids would want to climb it all the time!!

    I like that layered look, it would go great in your living room!

  2. I read this post the other day and thought of you while I was at Michaels today. Their scrapbook paper is 5/$1 and while I was shopping for a different project I found vintage/junky looking BINGO board paper. I bought a 12 x 12 piece of woood with my 50% off coupon for $2. I plan on doing a little decoupaging to make a game board like the one on Funky Junk. The whole project only cost $2.20!! I'll try to post a pic when I'm done-if I can figure out how.

  3. Megan that sounds so cool! I want to see it when your done for sure!
