Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you all had a nice relaxing day today.

I was lucky enough to go with my two sisters, Patty and Maureen, to the movies to see Then She Found Me. It's the new Helen Hunt movie. It was pretty cute but I did think Helen Hunt had aged ALOT! If you get a chance to see it I hope you do. I think you will like it.

After the movie I spotted Marshalls across the parking lot and I'm pretty sure I heard it calling my name. I don't normally go in there but I've seen so many wonderful items some of you have gotten there that I just had to go check.

I was not let down either. I found two pretty white wire plant hangers. One was bigger then the other. I think they will look really nice once I get some moss in them and plant some pretty flowers. I'm not sure if I will hang them in the front of the house by the front or in the back.

At first I wanted more of them but then I thought if there were to many of them they wouldn't stand out and look special. So two was more then enough.

I also found some darling cushions. They were striped with pale blue (though in the photo it looks almost grey) and had some sweet pink roses on them. They are so soft. I think there may be down inside. So shabby chic looking. I had to get them.

As you can see, I put them on a wicker chair I have outside but they are way to small. So now I'm on the hunt for some cute chairs, to paint white, at the thrift store. Yeah, another reason to stop at every thrift store I pass.

I'm starting to get so many projects stacked up. I was planning on stripping my headboard today but it was 97 outside today. Way to hot for me to be out there working away. So I'm waiting for it to cool down then I can start turning my trash into treasures!

I wish we had a Marshalls in Australia, I loved your scrolly basket and the cushions are so pretty. Your blog is wonderful, I'm just about to add you to my favourites.

Don't you love Marshall's now. The basket it great. I would have wanted that one as well.
It was hot here as well 85 degrees.
