68/365

Inspired by Kimba's blog, A Soft Place to Land, I decided to head to the Dollar Tree to find myself a little something to spray paint. I found this chubby little bird with an awful paint job... the picture doesn't do his garishness justice. The yellow and orange were nearly neon.

I love him so much more now, all in a pretty coat of glossy white.

After the Dollar Tree, I went through the Goodwill and found myself a new skirt. I've really been wanting to wear more skirts lately (dresses are pretty much a lost cause with my shape), and so I was excited to find one that I liked. It's a pretty floral skirt with green, blue, purple and white... and it was the half-off color tag so it only cost me $2.50!

When I got home, my mom asked me to take her out to a thrift store too. We waited until the girls got home and had their snack, and then we headed out. We ended up going to two thrift stores, but the only thing I bought was this little bunny for 45c. He's getting a coat of glossy white spray paint too!

It is pretty fun to go poking around the thrift stores, trying to look beyond the ugly to see what can be made pretty with just some spray paint. And all of this fun only cost me $4.00 + paint that I already had!
