Weekend Deals, Steals, and Fun

I feel like I ask this every Monday... but why is the weekend only 2 days and the week is 5?  I feel like it needs to be a more even split... 3 and 4?  This weekend I was busy busy!  But I was able to play just as hard as I worked... isn't that the way it should always be?

Friday afternoon I started a few sewing projects for clients and myself.

These fabrics will be made into pillows for my funky wing backs... but this was as far as I got!

Then I was off to pick up my 2 nephews to babysit for the night.  Life with 4 boys was not what I was made for... but they were fun for the night!  I rewarded myself and my boys with a yummy frosty!

Saturday morning I was off to go shopping with my mom and was side tracked by this garage sale right down the street from my house!  I picked up this Potterybarn lamp for $25 and this metal table, also from Potterybarn for $20!!  The topiaries were only $10 each! 

But the steal of the day was...

This table, bench, and 4 chairs originally from Cost Plus for only $550!  My friend/client {not the lady pictured} had just purchased a very similar table and bench from C&B for $1650... no chairs!!!  I literally had to camp out while she ran to the bank to get the money!  Full price new this set would have been $1800 easy!

After the garage sale detour we headed to our original destination which was a flea market warehouse sale.  This vendor does flea markets most of the time, but every other weekend she opens up her warehouse staged to the public.  It is just amazing!  Great prices, and a unique selection!  Plus she serves breakfast and mimosas... can't go wrong there!

Sunday morning I continued the Mimosas at brunch with my closets friends.  The morning sun was so nice!  We could have sat out there longer, but we hogged the table for 4 hours!  
I guess all good things must end!

Welcome to Monday!

Wow, great finds! I'm so jealous you have the weather to sit outside for that long. Can't wait for spring to finally arrive here!
