Goodwill Hunting

So first of all I want to give a shout out to Shannon at 8 foot 6, one of my favorite blogs/ bloggers for posting that there was going to be a big sale at Goodwill today. By the way if you have been to her site check it out- she finds really fun craigslist deals every day as well as shows progress on her home, decorating tips- I love it!! Back to Goodwill- The prices were low- I mean really how can you get any cheaper(unless it is free of course)already things are incredibly low priced, for 50% is a crazy sale!! I am having a fantastic day, got my laminated desk papers/tray paper back today which look awesome, picked up a date square and the BEST iced Chai Latte ever at Wagamama (not to be confused with the chain in the UK- and on a side note it means selfish in Japanese I have learnt)on Tecumseth and King Street West, then headed to Goodwill got 3 belts, a lovely milk glass stand and a much needed new computer chair that I love- all for under 10 dollars CND!!! Ahhh Amazing!! Anyways I think I am going to stain the chair darker- not sure yet, I like it the way it is even! The driver of the TTC Streetcar said to me "You'll never guess, but I have the exact same chair set from 86' " To which I replied "Ahh yes, the year I was born..." hahaha. Blayre gets back from Italy tonight, so happy then we have reservations to go for our "Date Night" to Blowfish tomorrow night- so excited!! Life feels so great right now, I am also working on an interior design project that will be disclosed within the next few weeks, it has been great experience, and I am learning a lot! I still need a real job though- Please hire me someone!! Well my friends have a fantastic weekend!!

Always Stay Graceful,

    I've been living in my condo since Jan...and I'm still decorating, so I'm quite impressed by your speed-y-ness ;)

  2. Thanks Alissa!! It takes so much time to get everything right- but I have had an unfair unfair advantage as I am not working at the moment so its my current obsession basically!! I want to see pics of your place! xoxo

  3. I love those chairs! I see them for cheap on CList all the time (NOT THAT CHEAP THO!!!!!!!!!)


    I would have arm wrestled you for the vase!

    I can't wear belts...its not that I don't love them, I just that I can't accessorize an outfit if my life depended on it...


  4. Hey - have you seen how great these chairs look spray painted?


Thanks so much for all of the lovely comments!
Always Stay Graceful,
