Busy Bee

I've been working more and more around the house. Cleaning, shifting decorations, and getting things organized during my last days of summer!

I hung the beautiful canvas that my father-in-law got us. One more thing off my summer goal list! Yay!

I love painting, done by Joey's grandma. 
However it looked tiny...and was off center from when we had the striped couch under it. 


Notice a chair is also gone?
That huge blue chair was a freebie. 
We never sit in it and it takes up so much room.
So it got moved to the front room, until we can get it a new home!

I am so thankful that he got us that painting! It fits so much nicer over the couch and I love the colors!

Yesterday I organized and cleaned up the office. Got rid of boxes and the random stuff that got placed in there. Took about an hour and a half...not too long and had a big impact. I actually want to spend time in there now! That night, I put the finishing touches on our geek room! Details coming soon!

Today I went to Michael's. We just got one in our town :) They have all their baskets 60% off, plus today and Saturday they have an additional 15% off of sale items coupon. Yay!

I wanted to get a basket for our records. Joey's mom gave us her collection- that I believe were her parents. They weren't stored the best they were in a crate we had (slanted sideways). So off to Michael's I went!

What a nice blessing it was! I found one that would fit all the records. For $8.49!! Regularly 24.99! Yay!
I love Johnny Cash, we were given 2 records of his! Folsom Prison and San Quentin! They are my favorite ones! What a great mother-in-law to think of us when she wanted to get rid of the records! :)

I'm on the lookout now for a vintage stereo cabinet with a working record player! Hopefully, one day, I'll find one for a good price and it'll come home with me!

That's what I've been up to lately! I'll post about our geek room soon! :) I'm excited about it!

This weekend we are planning on going to a local auction tomorrow and possibly the comic book store! Yay! Sunday will be a day of relaxing.

Hope you have a lovely weekend!
