School info, and recent deals!


School starts in 6 days. I'm super nervous, don't ask why. I just always get this way! I have to take the Praxis test this Sat. I'm super nervous about that too! I'm just a big ball of nerves right now, I'm probably no fun to be around. Sadly I know that once school starts back up these post will be fewer and far between. I am just warning you now. I just don't have as much time or money to shop during the school year. I would look for a post on here once a week and that one post will probably fall on the weekend. If I have more time to shop and to post, or course I will, but my goal is to post at least once a week. And of course I will try my best to keep up with your blogs!

On to some recent deals:

I got this on the Clearance rack at michael's for 47 cents!
It's lime green :) I loooove lime green!
plus thats one of the colors of my kitchen!

Loved this cupcake print fabric! It was too cute!
Same print is at my local fabric store for 7 or 8 dollars.
I got it for $2 (a yard that is) at walmart. The walmart in the town over is the only one around with a fabric section still. They are slowly clearancing it all out and getting rid of it, it makes me sad to see it go, but happy to get it for so cheap!
The polka dot print were $1 a yard! so exciting.
I got two yards of ribbon
1/2 yard of the three different polka dotted fabric
and 1 yard of cupcake print for 4.18
not too bad!
Last but not least. My blogging friend Kathie over at My Net Finds
knew how much I loved cute little birds and she told me about this pair of cute salt shakers
at Pier One Imports. She also knows Im cheap, so she pointed them out for their great $3 price tag! No clearance, no sale, just $3 all the time!
What a great deal, and a great buy!
They look so cute on my table!

Have a great week!
