Wow! What a SCORE!

Hey Y'all!
I sooooooooo scored today!
I was looking on Craigslist in the arts and crafts section and I came across a Bernina Deco 650 embroidery machine. The seller was only asking $125.00. I Googled it and found one for $788.00! So I immediately emailed her and since I was closest to her and could come pick it up immediately she "let" me buy it! WOOHOO!
I called my little sister and bullied her into going with me. You can never be too safe, even if we were meeting in a church parking lot! The lady that sold it to me was absolutely delightful and was super nice too! I told her that I was a Home Ec. teacher and that I would maybe be using it in my classroom at school in my free time too, and she was happy! She was even sweet enough to make a little sample telling me to enjoy it! Since my birthday is coming up next week, Big Daddy told me to go get the cash out of the teller machine and to consider myself gifted early! tee hee! Here's my new baby!

I'm so glad that I found this machine! Be looking for some embroidered goodies to come really really soon on my Etsy shop! Since Robbie is doing much better after his surgery, my Etsy business is going to be getting organized and running! I'll be sure to let you know when it's ready, but you can click here to go there if you'd like. Nothing's ready yet, but you can at least bookmark it for later, right?!
Enough of that! This post is about great deals that I've been blessed to get my hands on; SCORES! So...away we go!
This awesome vase was $1.50 at my hometown's thrift shop. It holds all kinds of little rhinestones and vintage clip earrings. Those were a score from two weeks ago at $2.00 per pair at a thrift shop in Charlotte!
Next SCORE was this awesome vintage tablecloth I found on Ebay for a mere $4.99. It looks great on my kitchen table (with six chairs on Craigslist for $35.00 about a year ago).
Then, my mammaw gave me an old pink depression glass creamer. She said she never had the sugar bowl, but wanted me to have it. So I Ebayed the piece and found it's long lost mate for a whopping 99 cents! SCORE!
On our weekly trip to The Dollar Tree yesterday, I found a bunch of kids t-shirts. I made one for Robbie for July 4th. Here it is:
I found these three curtain panels at Family Dollar week before last. They were on clearance for $5.00 each! I knew they'd match the new to us furniture, so again, I SCORED!
About a month or so ago, Big Daddy and I went to yard sales around here. I sooo scored on this milk glass vase for $1.00! I love it with the cute little American flags in it on top of my old cabinet in the kitchen. See it in the top right corner?
While you're here, might as well see The Doublewide's 4th of July Kitchen decor!
Well, guess that's about it for now. I'm aggravated at myself because I didn't go to any yard sales this morning. I just could not make myself get out of the bed! But that's ok. That Bernina was well worth missing yard sales, right! I'll leave you with a sweet picture of Robbie working a puzzle! I swanee, that youngin' can work one F-A-S-T!
Be Blessed!
