Side by side……..

Left Romeo this morning slaving away in the yard to go do a little ‘junkin.………

I will share some of the goodies I found below but look how pretty the patio set is with the cushions…….

Don’t know why the cushions in my bookroom bothered me…..

Do you?

This baby is now back on Craigslist……wish me luck!

Talk about lucky though………

Found some really neat things today. I have shared with you guys before some deals I have gotten and compared to the “in store” prices….so thought it would be fun to show you the deals again that way.

Freebird and I were at Target the other day and I mentioned the fact that I wanted a “floppy straw hat” for the beach…….

I tried on some……made sure they met with Freebirds approval…..shock-shock….

I put it back because I couldn’t bear to pay 13.00 and it wasn’t the “packable” kind etc so I knew it would get squished.

Also, I just really wasn’t sure if I am a straw hat kind of girl…….I mean Jennifer Aniston and Cameron Diaz can pull it off…..but plain ‘ole me?? I have some old pic’s where I wore straw hats when Meg Ryan made them cool…….looking back in photos…..NOT so cool…….

But that all changed this morning….I saw this little pretty………..

The lady had five dollars on it and the Hazard girl in me asked if I could get it for $3.00……

She said: “Sure”…..

Then she said: “it’s a really nice brand…it’s a Callanan…..”

And I sorta gave her the “we are sooooo on the same page face”, like I knew what a Callanan was….you know……hat sisters……

and I said…..”Ohhhhhhh……will you still take $3.00?”

She said….”Sure”…..

Then she said.….”I paid ALOT for it….it’s the crushable, packable kind”….

And I said…..”Ohhhhhhh……will you still take $3.00?”

She said….”Sure”…..

Helllllllooooooo???? Crushable…..Packable!!! Woo Hoo!!! I didn’t even know what Callanan was…..

GraceSo………the Callanan hat……Crushable…..Packable

Then she said…….

“Do you want the other straw hat for $3.00?”


I hesitated….hemmmed….hawed….and said…..

“Welllllllll….. is it a Callanan?”………

She said……”No….JCrew”…..

I hesitated longer……. because….helllooooooo…..I am now a Callanan only hat kind of girl…..paused and said….

“Sure”….

Love,
Me
