Wanted to show you my bargain I found today for 1.00. I had to clean it up some but it's shining now. :) I didn't have a mixer and had been wanting one sort of like this one. Now I have it! :)
The thing in the front on the bottom moves the base that holds the bowl in place so it can adjust to a larger or smaller bowl. I already have 3 different sized mixing bowls for this sort of mixer so that was good to. I had found those back last year at bargain prices at the thrift stores to. I LOVE those old thick bowls and they were like 1.55 or 2.00 each so I'd buy them when I found them.
Last time I was shopping at my favorite thrift store I found a kitchen trash bag full of white icicle lights and today I found some more of them. I left them on the patio so I could go through them and check them all to make sure all the bulbs are good in them. Then I can put them in the attic. One day when I need to park it to rest, and it's a pretty day out, I will play with those out there. I had even thought about putting a strand of them up on the patio for a little light out there at night when we're out there. I don't think those would draw as many bugs as the house lights would.
I also found another glass pillar candle holder. I have one in the attic that is a little taller than this one and I think it will match it. This one wasn't but 1.55.
In the morning I plan on going to a local thrift store and see IF they have a dresser that will match my chest. I'm ready to get it all together so I can put it all in the bedroom.
