Oh Happy Day

 Sometimes God sends his happy angels to you right when you need them the most. Today was one of those days. After being in the dumps for a couple of weeks...I can see the light. The sunrise was BEAUTIFUL this morning...and the sun is STILL shining...AND....remember my favorite photographers? Well, they took this picture of us and I had it made into a 16x24 canvas...using a groupon...for $45. YES. I. DID. And my oh my...it looks beautiful. I practically attacked the Fed Ex man when I saw him coming down the driveway. (Please excuse my sorry photography skills. Yet another reason I hired Will and Laurie...)
 Then...I found this hole in the wall thrift store that I had never been in before. And there, sitting all alone on a dusty shelf, was this wooden dough bowl. Priced at $1.99. Yes people..that is ONE DOLLAR AND NINETY NINE CENTS. I snatched it up and started looking around..like someone was playing a mean trick on me. When I reached the register to pay, the happy angels smiled on me yet again...because that baby was 25% off. I skipped all the way to the car and once I closed the door, I screamed y'all. THAT is how happy I was. Then I called Brian and screamed into the phone about my lucky purchase and how it was such a great deal..and on and on. And then he told me he wished HE was a dough bowl! Bahahahahahahahahahahaha--He's so funny....
 AND.....just in case you are wondering why I'm so excited about a $1.50 dough bowl. Check this out....http://www.potterybarn.com/products/found-dough-bowls/?pkey=e|dough%2Bbowl|2|best|0|1|24||1&cm_src=PRODUCTSEARCH||NoFacet-_-NoFacet-_-NoMerchRules-_-

Found Dough Bowls - Oblong

$199.00 – $249.00


  1. I love those bowls...
    so happy you found a deal.

  2. Ohhh, that's what those are! We've come across a few in our junk barn journeys and loved them but had no idea what their original use was...might just have to skip on back and see if we can get a deal! Although it won't be nearly as good as $1.50!

  3. Great find!! Love it!
