Thrifting Tuesday

I had to run into town today to take my son to the doctor. He seems to have a rattle in his chest and a terrible cough. He has had lung issues since he was born so he goes from fine to pneumonia in no time flat! The doctor said he had Bronchitis and Pharyngitis. He now has in inhaler, some cough syrup, and an antibiotic. He went to bed earlier than usual because he was so tired from being up all night coughing.

Also, today was my daughters first day of actual driving in Drivers Ed. It was weird because while we were in town we actually drove right past her! I couldn't believe that my "little girl" was behind the wheel and without me! (Seems I am having a little trouble with them growing up!)
Since we had time to kill while waiting for the meds to get filled, my son and I popped into a thrift store to see what we could find. I didn't have a lot of time to spend so I just picked up a few things..

I love this wooden candle box. I will probably paint it black. The other is a sign that was painted with a Noah's Ark design. I think it is cute put I will probably paint over it. I am sure it will be something with stars on it!
I got 2 wooden candle holders on the left - need to be painted but look very prim already. The tray in the middle is alright but I am going to paint and put some fabric in the middle to cover up the carving. In front of the tray is a little ducky sign with ribbon that I will completely redo - it was only $ .49 - who could resist! The last item is an iron hand towel holder. This is going to look great in my updated bathroom just as it is! It was only $ .99!
I will try to get some things in the works for Whatcha Workin on Wednesday but I have been a busy gal and already have a few things up my sleeve this week!
Can't wait to share them with you all!

Sorry to hear that your little one is sick. It must be going around because my son is sick as well.

Hi Nicole,
I hope you son gets to feeling better.
Aren't you a nervous wreck with your daughter learning how to drive?? I was, when my son started driving...maybe it's different with girls? Maybe htey are more alert and careful??? All I know is I dreaded it when he started driving! :)
You found some T/S gems there, I can't wait to see them all primmed up!

Have a wonderful day!

You found some nice things. I so want one of those candle boxes. Oh! I remember the drivers ed days. Kelsey got her license last September and I was so sad and worried. I just have to pray for her safety every time she leaves home.
