I used Glidden "Pebble White" and Ralph Lauren "Tea-Stained". I'm so pleased I think I'll sell it! ha ha
I'm posting this to Met Monday @ Between Naps on the Porch.

I have withdrawals if I don’t get to go to Goodwill EVERY DAY. Unfortunately it has gotten to me and I’m obsessed. I hit one on my way home from work and I like to go to another one near my house sometime before they close at 9pm.
When I enter through the doors, I always look to see who’s working the registers. I kinda hang my head or look in a different direction because I know they think I’m sick because I come in there EVERY DAY. They’re probably thinking geez doesn’t that lady have anything else to do with her life?
Anyway, I ran in and glimpsed at the racks of clothes on my way back to the furniture section. I looked at some crap stuff that has been there for quite a while and moved on over to the housewares section (I have my routine, don’t you?). I found a small plaque with a knob on it that will be perfect for hanging my daughter’s bulletin board. There wasn’t much else to look at so I proceeded to the check-out line.
I was the last person in line. When it got to be my turn, the cashier (who I’ve seen a million times) was calling over a coworker and asked if she could borrow a dollar from him until she saw him again the next day. I assumed she wanted to buy herself a drink from the soda machine. When he said he only had a 20 dollar bill, she said she would get change when I paid because the cash register drawer would open. Well … I paid for my $2.99 plaque with a debit card because I only had $2 in my wallet. The drawer didn’t open. I guess I felt bad because I pulled out one of my dollar bills and handed it to her. She looked at the other guy and said “Oh, she gave me a dollar.” The coworker said that’s nice of you (to me). I told them I’m in there practically every day (little lie) so I’ll see them again.
ANYWAY … long story short, the cashier NEVER said thank you. I actually said thank you to her when I was leaving … like thank you for ringing up my purchase. I know if I hadn’t loaned her that dollar, it would have been on my mind all night and I know I shouldn’t expect to ever get it back, but I really though I would’ve gotten a dang thank you.

I just love these artichoke statue thingies. I got them last fall and although I haven't found the perfect spot for them yet, I don't care. I knew I needed them when I saw them in the store.
This mirror is hanging in my foyer. It's a not the best kind of mirror for checking yourself before you walk out the door, but it fits perfectly in the space.
I'm always drawn to milk glass when I see it at auctions or yard sales. I got this cutie a couple weeks ago. I used it with my July 4th tablescape.
I bought my sister-in-law a set of these adorable measuring spoons for her birthday and before I left the store I asked the saleslady to ring up another set for me! They're just precious. The handles say "Queen of the Kitchen". Too cute!
Have a great day!

I breaded the squash with flour and fried it too. Fried ... that's how we do it in NC.
Then I cut up some cucumbers and YUM! Supper is served! Not the most exciting, but it filled our bellies and we were happy.
So, what did you have for supper last night?

I had looked at the newspaper the night before and knew there weren't going to be a lot of sales, but I always find sales on the way to sales. So, I got my hubby up and made sure he had money in his pocket and away we went.
