What a Bargain!

A couple of Saturdays ago I got a phone call from my mom telling me that she was at an Estate sale and there were boxes of ribbon for sale for 25 cents a spool.  I asked her to see if she could make a deal and she got all the boxes for $2.00!  Don't you just love a bargain?  I figured if there was just one useable spool of ribbon in those boxes it was well worth the price.  She sent me a box in the mail which I received yesterday.

There are still some ribbon that she hasn't sent yet because it didn't fit into the box.  It's an interesting mix.  Some will be great for bows and others are ideal for scrapbooking.  There are some that I have no idea what to do with.  Suggestions??  Maybe after I master sewing (snicker) I will put some of them to good use.

We are still unpacking and I am awaiting the arrival of my craft table, so until things get a little more put together in our new house I won't be pursuing any crafting activities.

I painted a wall in our new living room yesterday.  It was a hideous pale green color that even my daughter turned her nose up.  We picked a brown color that complements the color on all the other walls in the house. We also picked up an off-white color to paint the trim and doors.

Here is Z helping mommy paint. You can see some of the old color at the bottom.

The finished product.

Next is a new entertainment center to put on it!
