I love the Goodwill storeI found this amazing "Simply Shabby Chic" bookcase that I have been wanting from Target for years at the Goodwill store this weekend!! It is $200 new at Target. I got it for $29 at the Goodwill and there is only one minor and fixable flaw- nothing a little spackel and cream paint won't fix! Yay!! I'm just so giddy about this wonderful find!! As you can see I have already started loading it up with my art supplies!
Here is a photo of my sweet baby boy. It is so hard to get him to look at the camera for long enough for me to get a shot. It took about 40 tries to get this cute one.
And here I am with my big boy. Also one that won't look at the camera for more than a split second!
I haven't been keeping up with "Show and Tell Sunday" even though they the themes are ones I could be taking some great photos for. I just haven't felt like decorating and taking photos lately- someone call the doctor, I must be sick! LOL! Anyway, hopefully I will crawl out of this funk and do one big catch up post soon. Also, I have been tagged by a couple of you lovely ladies and I promise to get to that soon!

I've been in an "I-don't-want-to-blog" funk, myself. Just taking a little break, I guess. I'm doing a mosaic framed mirror right now! I'll take a picture for you!
