1. This desk organizer. Apparently I have a thing for these. This one was 1.99. It's actually plastic.
I may or may not put a coat of Ralph Lauren tea stain on it...that was my original plan. But right now it looks so clean & pretty; I really like it the way it is. What do you think? Glaze? Or leave it?
2. This tray. Don't know what I'm gonna do with it yet, but it was .99. It's plastic, too.
3. This pile of sheets. I love thrifted sheets. Major yardage, pre-shrunk, pre-softened, cute designs. What's not to love?
I have more plans for these...but for now, I've made my dearest darling daughter two nightgowns:
I totally love the striped one! For one thing, it's the ever-so-trendy chevron pattern that is all over the place these days. Also, it reminds me of Fruit Stripes gum. Remember that?
And by the way, thanks to my sweet little guy, Nolan, for the title of this post. As we were sitting at breakfast this morning, somehow something came up in conversation (between DH & I) about something that was 99 cents. Out of the blue, Nolan said, "If you had three of those, it would cost $2.97." We just stared at him. I tried to do some math in my head. What the...? Did I mention that Nolan is 5??? Good Will Hunting. That kid is destined for a janitor's job at MIT someday. And the good looks, too! Matt Damon has nothing on my little guy. :)
