So, I kinda get a lot of magazines. Maybe you've noticed a couple of spots for them around my house.
In my bedroom
In the "nice" living room
I think that's why I like reading blogs so much, it's like I get to read a whole bunch of magazine articles everyday!!
I found this picnic basket in our basement. It definitely came from a pile of stuff from my dad's house.
And then I was having a major problem with my magazines in the TV room.
My friend dragged me out of my house during a "deep cleaning weekend" (I'm trying to get my spring cleaning done now so I can actually enjoy spring) and we went to our first estate sale.
Look at the beauty I found:
It had a price tag of $5.00 but the lady gave it to me for $3.00
So I painted it silver and I love the way it turned out.
Now to get that chair recovered and I will be 91.9% happy with our TV room. Oh, and the table on the left is hopefully getting painted this weekend.
So far I get these magazines in the mail:
Martha Stewart Living
Martha Stewart Everyday Food (even though I don't cook)
Veranda (my fav)
I was watching Sex and the City 2 the other night (I know everyone hated it, but I kinda liked it - it had a happy ending) and I heard this quote from Carrie:
"I've been cheating on fashion with furniture"
I keep telling myself that this is the LAST winter where I am gonna STOP spending money on the house and invest more in a winter wardrobe. So far, I bought a new pea coat and that's it. I think the next magazine subscription I get will be InStyle - I certainly need all the help I can get!!
Happy Friday to YOU.
