Flea Market Finds

Today GiGi and I headed out to the Tennessee Flea Market! It was huge with so much cool stuff! I walked away with...
This small china cabinet made out of old barn wood and the tree thing on top--this hilarious old man made them himself and it was funny talking with him!

And here it is with my dishes in it!!

I also got this pitcher

And this ladder---trying to decide to do a book shelf or old quilts...maybe both

And this is a neat old trunk I was able to get from a lady in the church who no longer needed it! I love it!!

Just another night at the Gossett's

Watching football....
John is sleepy...

John is crazy...

John is normal...

Never know which John he is going to be but I love them all! HAHA

The collage in the bathroom

I am so excited about how this turned out...John had a fun idea to blow up some pictures from our honeymoon to hang up and I had been collecting some frames and had been loving pottery barn's wall/picture collages like this one...

and I had my eye on this wall in our bathroom...

So..the new pottery barn inspired collage...

The monogram is letters we used at our wedding..I spray painted them. Now I just need the price tags off and the pictures in!

My $3.00 Steal!!!

We have been searching for a filing cabinet for some time now---and to buy a wood filing cabinet, what we have found is that they will cost anywhere from $150-$250. Well, I have been praying that the Lord would provide one....and today I happened on in to my favorite thrift store and saw this guy sitting there...

So....I asked the owner what the price was, and he said $3.00!! I couldn't believe it!! So, after a little paint and some distressing....our new filing cabinet!

It matches our desk and chair perfectly! I still need to add the hardware...I'm going to get some spray paint, and then re-attach them. We are so thankful for this!!

The Bathroom Cabinets are FINISHED!!

So excited about these!! Here is a reminder of what the cabinets/bathroom used to look like...

And here is what it looks like now!

I sanded the cabinets, painted them white, then stained them. I also spray painted all the hardware with oil-rubbed bronze spray paint.

Football season is here!!!! We are so enjoying going to Seth's High School games (he is a senior!!)...we are so proud of our cousin KYLE up at Liberty University playing as wide receiver...Saturday was their first game and Kyle scored two touchdowns!! We were able to watch the game on the TV in Tuscaloosa and it was soooo cool! The whole family screamed and cheered so loud!....and of course we are loving Alabama football! This weekend was Alabama's first game, and two of my friends from Columbia, SC were able to come down and go to the game with us! We had so much fun!!

Hudson getting some rest before the game :)

Mandy, Jackie and I

We are so thankful and grateful to Mama and Papa Ward for giving us the opportunity to attend the games! It is such a blessing!
