Brooke's Bargains 15 & Random Stuff

Goodwill, Christmas Cards, & A Few New Things Around the House:

I bought this blue vase at Goodwill for $2. I like the shape of it. The green glass one was my grandmother's.

My sister had this made for us for Christmas. It's a nice addition to my "M" wall.

Goodwill rain boots for Ava: $4

Ron hung my $2 yard sale curtain in our guestroom. I bought the decorative rod at Walmart- their Better Homes & Gardens line has cute stuff.

I didn't get a good picture of my new chalkboard. I'm so forgetful about doing before and after pictures too! This was a mirror that's been sitting in my garage for 6 months. The frame was silver. I wasn't sure how it would turn out because I first spray painted it, and it didn't look good. Next, I painted it white and sanded it so that the green spray paint would show through...

I bought these three plates for $3 (Goodwill).

This was a wreath from my grandmother's house; I hung it over my yard sale shutters ($1).

My sister gave me these shutters; she found them at a yard sale. I haven't re-decorated this area since I took down my Christmas decorations.

I LOVE picture Christmas cards!
Here's my 'fridge:

Hey! I'm taking a three week break from blogging/internet stuff. I hope y'all have a wonderful start to the new year! Be blessed in '10! :)
