Thank You Universe!

Just last week I was going on and on to Mike about how I need to learn how to sew and get going with my Etsy shop. The only problem was, I didn't have a sewing machine and I certainly didn't have the extra cash needed to buy one.

I woke up early on Saturday, and immediately looked through the free and garage sale listings on Craigslist... one of my weekend morning rituals. I mapped out a tag sale/free stuff route and Mike and I hopped in the car and drove around Northern Vermont for the morning, looking for free piles and garage sales.

By the time we returned home at 2 pm my car was packed with goodies, and I had only spent $5! I call this a big success.



I snagged a cute little love bench for $5 at the Goodwill, and found an amazing wooden dresser and some other trinkets in a "free pile" in Colchester.




But my favorite FREE find of the weekend was this fully functioning sewing machine...




So I just want to say a big thank you to the universe for bestowing upon me this sewing machine, I already taught myself how to sew! (Check my first shabby chic scarf)

I hope everyone had a lovely weekend. This week I'll be packing up a bunch of things in my apartment to bring home with me when I head down to Rye for Easter. I am giving some of my things to my cousin KK who just moved to the Westchester area from Florida, and I have the perfect desk for her to furnish her new apartment!

Happy Monday!
