Snow delay doesn’t stop the Diamonds



I was hoping to post my bathroom remodel. Due to bad weather I will have to save it for another day. My contractor couldn’t make it. No contractor, no closet. He did however finish tiling the shower floor, and it looks GREAT!




This week I was assigned the task of sorting my mother-in-law’s clothes. Deciding what should be kept and what should be donated (I wonder why they picked me, LOL). A little bit sad because each piece brought back memories, but I knew they would make someone happy.

While I was at Goodwill I JUST HAD TO LOOK

… and boy am I glad I did.

Last post I showed you my bedroom re-do. I did not like the two pictures next to my bed but posted anyway. Well I fixed that. Found the perfect pictures and at two for $20.00, I couldn’t resist.

I also purchased a great coat sweater, one wicker waste basket and a cute small wicker basket for the new bathroom.





Did i tell you, you can get coupons on GROUPON for Goodwill (try to say coupons on Groupon for Goodwill, 10 times fast not easy).  For Christmas I received a Groupon gift certificate as a gift. You pay $ 15.00 and receive a $30.00 Groupon, which I used. My total purchase came to $32.35 but with my 30 dollar Groupon I only had to pay $2.35. You get the picture (well actually I did).

So for $2.35 I purchased:                                                                                                                 2 pictures

2 wicker baskets

1 reversible 100% wool coat sweater


walking out the door


I love my wool coat sweater.  It’s a perfect coat to wear running errands.  Not to heavy, but very warm.  The best part, it’s reversible.  So… it’s like having two coats in one. Gearing up for Valentines day, I decided to wear my red cowboy boots.  I love holidays!  Goodwill price $8.49.  Bought with Groupon, actual cost $2.35.
