Thrifty Finds and a Spa day

I went to a local estate sale today and got some awesome treasures for GREAT prices! I haven't been to one in a while, so I am very excited that it turned out to be a good one.

I got this awesome caned chair for $10! I'm kind of diggin' the wood color, but it may get a paint job. We'll see. I'll definitely recover the cushion in a fun fabric though. It's super comfortable too!

This French nightstand/end table thingy was a super score for only $5!
There is a bit of an icky sticky situation happening on the top which I think is why it was such a bargain. Easy fix with a little TLC :)

I have always wanted one of these folding luggage racks, and for $5, I'll take it! I see a white paint job with new straps made out of upholstery webbing {LOVE}!

I fell in love with these vintage bird flash cards and for $.75 I could NOT pass them up!

And last but not least, a simple vintage mason jar for $1. Yay!
It was cute, this little old lady kept following me around the sale because she said I had "a good eye" and I totally agree, ha ha!

After the sale, I met up with Noah at his preschool for his belated Mother's Day Tea & Spa Day. First up, a foot massage :)

Next, a mani/pedi :)
(like my flip flop tan lines, ha ha..oh yeah, and over here in beachy land, toe rings are a normal thing. I've had toe rings on since I was 13 years old...not these same ones of course..... so I don't even notice them anymore, but you may think they're strange).
Some face powder and perfume on my wrists....mmmmmm.
A yummy lunch made by little hands with a fancy souvenir plate :)
Some info about mommy...
And a precious paper flower made by my boy :)
Other than Hayden waking up with a 103 degree temperature, it has been a marvelous day!!
Happy Friday people!
