My after Easter haul at Michaels!

 

OK…I know I don’t need a thing but all of my Michaels had Easter at 70% off!  I got lots of goodies for next year for a fraction of the cost!

I ended up going to three different Michaels all in one day with my friend Cheri….

I love these British card magazines!  They had them in a wrong spot with a price of 5.99 in front of them, they rang up at 12.99…I said “that isn’t what the tag said” and the clerk said “you’re right….so I got them for 5.99 each!  They come with a little gift, these two had winter rubber stamps and some Graphic 45 ephemera…

I took a couple photos of Easter around my house before I take it down…I will leave the “Spring” items up for a while….

I got this sweet very vintage chick from Deb at A Garage Sale Gal…I am going to be staying at her home for a couple of days the middle of May…can’t wait!

I got these wonderful vintage baby planters from my friend Lynn, she is so sweet!

We worked the last week on the back yard, I will do a more complete post, but thought I would share a few photos now….

The Big patio…

The smaller attached patio…they are right next to each other.  This little one was a room when we bought the house, but it was done really poorly and had black mold…so it is now a patio…

Bailey is now 15 pounds and very hairy!

Sorry it is a little out of focus…

She is getting better all of the time, but she still thinks biting is affection, it has been a real issue….we have bought a correction collar to help “remind” her that the biting isn’t OK…and to come when she is called….but I wouldn’t trade her for anyone….other than my Maya…:)

Thanks for stopping in….

Lucky you! 70% off is awesome! And friend time, too! Your patios look so inviting. It was windy all day up here in the mountains. Hubs went down the hill to buy new tires for his tractor, and I painted some furniture.

Love your painted mason jars on your Easter table. Good for you on the 70% scores! How fun that you will be visiting Deb next month. I can't wait until it's actually warm enough to enjoy our tiny deck. Keep the pictures coming. Us northern folks are envious of sunshine and warm temps!

There is only one thing better than 70% off sales...going with a friend! I'm sure you two cleaned them out...hahaha! I went to Michael's yesterday and didn't see those sales (did you sneak to Pittsburgh?) but I did buy that Kinetic Sand for my grandsons that they have been advertising.
I'm trying to pare down...it's really hard!
