Weekend Wins

Well, the final weekend of the summer has come. Next weekend, I'll be welcoming new college students to campus (with a large coffee in hand, of course). I had Friday off so I decided I would go to Albany for a little back to school shopping. Really, I just needed to go to Sephora to get some makeup. And I was proud of my restraint because I only purchased the item I was in search of. Of course I hit up a few more places before heading home. I mean I did drive an hour after all. :) I was pleased to find a few cute things.
I happened upon this great jacket from Land's End. It was super clearance style (under $30). I got it in a light khaki. Love.And I finally picked up the madras tote from LLbean. I think this will be a great bag for the fall. And by fall, I mean starting tomorrow. Saturday morning was spent at yard sales for the third weekend in a row. My friend, Angie and I got a lot of good deals. This week I found a bench/trunk thing. I'm going to paint this up and use it for blankets. I'm not sure what color yet. I forgot to show my big find from last week. I have been searching for wicker furniture for my enclosed front porch. I got this cute rocking chair and table for $20. I am going to paint this because it's in need of a fresh coat of paint and replace the cushion. It's in great condition and it looks good on the porch. Gracie agrees.
I also wanted to update you on this stand that I got a few weeks ago ($5).
I painted it black and got some new knobs. Now it's the home of my nail polish collection (Yes, both drawers)Today I spent the morning cleaning and the afternoon at the lake getting some sun and relaxing. This week is going to be busy. I mean I do have a new bag to debut. :)
I hope you all had a great weekend!
