I am in the process of making over one of the bedrooms upstairs and making a Paris Room for Bailey. I found a 3 pc Bistro set on craigslist for $50 and go pick it up Saturday.

I'd love to see pics too when you complete the bedroom project Vicki Smile

We really need to do a makeover on our unused spare bedroom and have a deadline for the end of June as we'll have overseas family (DH's side) arriving at the beginning of July for one month. At this stage we don't even have enough beds for four guests!  The walls all need repainting in the room but we do still have enough paint left to redo it and it's the same colour it is currently painted so that will just cost some elbow grease. The floors need a sand and revarnish also, I have curtains which hung in the living area when we first moved in that will suit for the windows and we have put our old bed in that room (bought a new mattress though) but I'd love to update the headboard and footboard somehow (diy style obviously). Various items have been shoved into that room which don't belong there so it will need some decluttering also. I don't want to spend a lot, although I still want it to look nice, so will have to get my thinking cap on.

I bet the room is going to look beautiful when you're done with it, Skin. Please keep us updated.

Skin you always do a great job!

Well I've been baking cat and dog treats and I've been selling them. Hope it keeps up!

Thanks ladies. It has been an adventure. I delivered a sample pack to someone yesterday in my way home from work and 15 minutes later got a call with a full order. The funny thing is.....they are for her and not the dog. She read the ingredients, tried the peanut butter ones and loved them!

LOL, Vicki, take the sales any way you can.

My boss gave me a book that his daughter had to read for college. Our financial advisors came into the office today and bought us lunch.

Uh... for some reason the free lunch was withdrawn. I suspect it was because we didn't have any coffee to offer the one advisor.

Grocery shopping last night, had coupons(2) for rubbermaid containers. My coupons were for 1.00 off. They were 3.69 each, store sale was buy one get one free,, so that made them like 1.80ish,,they took both my coupons off making them 80 ish cents each.

Also had 4 coupons for Angel soft toilet paper, 45cents off each, they were on sale for 1.25 a 4 roll pack, which we were able to get each for 80 cents. Not our regular brand but for that savings it could'nt be passed up.
