A High Maintenance Woman

It’s just a high maintenance woman
Don’t want no maintenance man.

Ain’t no high maintenance woman
gonna fall for a maintenance man.

Toby Keith needs to re-write his lyrics.  This high maintenance woman is blessed everyday that Mr. Wonderful is a maintenance man, handy is an understatement.  I am now going to brag for a moment because he found me a treasure today that someone was getting rid of.

This is a perfect trash to treasure.


Isn’t it beautiful.  If I told you I almost paid $150 for one at Goodwill on Sunday would you laugh?  I did $150 and in bad shape, Mr. Wonderful refused the project so I didn’t get it.


Isn’t it beautiful?  The basket on top of the table was a find at the thrift store today, I paid .69 for it. 


Do you love them?  $2.00

I found the base for the lamp, remember the .49 cent shade?  Now all I need is a can of spray paint, a can of spray adhesive and the perfect 1/2 yard of material and I’ll have a new lamp.  Consider this a tease for a later post.


About Michelle

I started my blog as a way to connect with other paper crafters and of course it has gone a totally different direction. I've been able to share my experience as a mother, my hurt and disappointments over not having a relationship with my maternal unit, my walk with God and how knowing Him has changed me and continues to help me grow into the person I strive to be......

    What great finds! I wish I was a bargain shopper. But it takes effort and I think I am kind of lazy….maybe we could go together someday!

    I have one of those drop leaf tables in mahogany that needs to be refinished. It was my first dining room set. Came with 4 chairs (with the rosebud design) and a bachelor chest and it has brass claw feet. I got it from a friend of the family’s aunt that was getting ready to go into a retirement home. I’ve had it for over 20 years.
