I LOVE a bargain!

It's September 1st, and a beautiful, magnificent day it is!  Me and the kids went out this morning to enjoy the great outdoors, and there wasn't a cloud in the sky!  Yes, it did get a little hot as the day wore on, but it wasn't overbearing, and yes, this is Georgia.... so it is still going to be pretty warm for quite a while yet.  We start school next week............ yeah, I'm not quite ready, but that's the way the cookie crumbles :)

I have to tell you about my wonderful thrift store find!  I went to several thrift stores and the Goodwill the other day {when I got groceries...not a very bright idea, btw, it made for a very long day}.  Anyway, at my last thrift store stop, which happened to be the Salvation Army, I found and fell in love with a beautiful picture hanging on the wall.  It's called "Sunday Morning in Sleepy Hollow".  I instantly called my husband and told him about it and he looked it up on the internet {don't ya just love the world wide web??} and found out it was a fairly expensive print -without the frame- and even more so with a frame, and of course "mine" was framed.  And to top it off, it was for sale at a GREAT price!  So I nabbed it up before it caught the eye of someone else!  I was thrilled to say the least!  I love it when I find a great bargain.  Rachel had a good day as well, she found quite a bit of fabric, which of course, made her day too!  I'd like to hear about some of y'alls bargain deals.  You know, the kind that make you feel like a kid at Christmas!

I'll leave you with a few of the pictures I took outside today.

She has a rough life, doesn't she?
