Garage sales

One of my favorite things to do on a Saturday, garage sales! My 5 yr. old is even into it! Scary! Nothing better than digging through someone's junk...ha ha. 
 I found these goodies over the weekend. 

Ladybug Game    $1
Candle holder      $2
Patterson book    $.25
5 Christmas ornaments $1

Isn't that candle holder u.g.l.y?? The lady had a WHOLE box. I guess she painted them for a party. Remember, one must always look past color to see its potential! A little paint will go a long way on that baby! I'm a HUGE Patterson reader so I'm always on the lookout. I'm changing my Christmas tree colors this year to red so these ornaments were a steal!

Months and months

For months I've been on the lookout for an accent table. Dont you just hate shopping and shopping for that 1 item that you cannot find? Its either too big, too small, wrong size, wrong color, wrong price, or your husband doesnt like it. I have a husband that REALLY cares what goes the house. That can make for a challenge at times. Thank goodness for cell phone cameras!! I have found myself sending him a photo right from the store to see what he thinks. Well I THINK I have it narrowed to 2 choices:
Kirkland's - Online Only
I have been to a million stores and can only find what I want online. Which I'm not that happy about because I want to touch and feel the product...AND return it easily if I dont like it. So for now I wait and see what else is out there. Maybe Home Goods will get something good in! In the meantime, I've found a MILLION things to put on the table. I plan on making the table my "theme" table for the holidays/seasons. Stay tune!

The best for last

My final Shaklee product to tell you about is Basic H2 Organic Super Cleaning Concentrate. As you can see from the photo of the back of the container, it cleans it all with VERY little. Remember, Shaklee products go a very long way. I use this for all my glass cleaning and appliances

Shaklee carries more than just cleaning products. I just happen to be a cleaning product freak so I tried these products out first. Their products included, weight loss, nutrition, and even beauty!

More Shaklee

Another great product is the Dish Wash soap from Shaklee. I have been searching and searching for a dish wash soap that actually works!! Imagine that!  I've tried 12-15 brands before finding Shaklee. If you have hard water or even soft water, this is the product for you.

The best part, this is how much you use per use! The great thing about Shaklee, a little of their product goes a really way. If you are like me, that means everything. I like knowing I'm getting my money's worth out of a product.

Check back tomorrow for my final and last Shaklee product review!

Crockpot Chicken

Doesn't this look good?? And let me tell you, it was!! I recently discovered Smashed Peas & Carrots. She has really great recipes that I highly recommend. This is a photo of her Crock-pot BBQ chicken and oven fries! My whole family gulped it down in no time. Plus, who doesn't love a Crock-pot recipe?

More finds

My daughter loves butterflies. This was a half off find. It's a tea light holder. Candles and small child dont really mix so we fixed that problem.
 Of course she picked blue for the color. We used a flameless tea light for a little night time lighting.

Thrift Store finds

I found these bookends at a local thrift store. I loved the shape and at 50% off, I couldnt pass them up. Since I was using them for my daughters room, she picked the color. 
 The perfect shape of light blue. 

PS.. Please excuse my photography skills. I dont have any and not the best camera!

I have been very busy shopping all the local thrift stores on a weekly basis. Between working full time, raising a 5 yr, trying to quilt, and craft...not a lot of time is left for blogging. I bought lots of fun things and while I have lots of ideas and plans, my body seems to be moving slower than my brain! Here are some great things I recently found.
