I had a really nice weekend.
Hubby and I did some thrifting on Friday (he is a great thrifter and spotted things that I had walked right by!). But I wanted to do more on Saturday. I asked him if he wanted to go, or if I should ask my mom to go. He was more than happy to take a pass and stay home. So, my mom and I spent the day thrifting, had lunch at Cracker Barrel, then made a stop at Lowe's for plants.
My main goal thrifting this time was to get containers to put plants into. Not planters or pots, just various unique containers that COULD hold plants. And I scored! Pails, dishes, even a big cooking pot.
This will be an ongoing project but I'm very happy with the beginning. I also found two long strands of white Christmas lights, which I've put in the trees around "My Spot", the area where I put my firepit and am fixing up as my little corner of the world.
Then I went to Lowe's and hit up the clearance plant rack. Basically, Lowe's takes the puny, pathetic, 1/3 dead plants, marks them way down and puts them on a rack. They mostly just need a little TLC and they'll thrive. Not only did I get a bunch of clearance plants, I also scored THIS amazing bargain:
Hope y'all had a good weekend!
