Tin and a plant

Diy succulent in tin can

Diy succulent in tin can

It’s been a long time, but hopefully now I can spend some time on here and update you all with my extremely fascinating life. I am in bed now between 9-9:30pm and I have an almost 5 month old daughter. She’s the best thing to ever happen to me (and my husband). Enough with the sappy stuff.

My husband went to get propane for our BBQ as we apparently BBQ a lot, so while he was out having fun, I strapped on my daughter and wandered over to our local west end flea market (two blocks away – I couldn’t resist.

On a lot of tables were people selling succulent plants in old vintage tins for upwards of $40. I fully support local artists, but as I’m on maternity leave now and need small projects, I decided to make my own. $5 for the tin at said market and $5 for the plant, I now have my own vintage tin succulent plant. Everyone is happy now!

garage sale gem

IMG_1066It happened again, I went to my parents place last Saturday for some “quality time” and went garage saling with my mom. I got these two great bracelets. I think they are real snake? and copper. So far my arms haven’t turned green.

I made a mistake and broke the first rule of garage saling. What is it again? Never pay full price. Well I did. A whole $2 for both. Hey big spender!

 

garage sale find

recyclingEvery Saturday ( as long as the weather is nice) I go garage saling with my mom in the ‘burbs’ of Tsawwassen. The etiquette of garage saling is that you never ever pay full price, or at least you try not to. It’s stuff you are trying to get rid of. It amazes that some people won’t sell off something that they’ve obviously decided that they no longer needed for a measly 25ยข off what they initially wanted.

This is newest pride and joy for taking leftovers to work. It is originally for Indian food and has three different sections all held together with a metal latch.

It’s easy to clean and travels great.

Best of all, there was a $3 price tag on it and I paid $1. Bargain!
