Saling Saturday (Week 3)

So this is ever so slightly late, but here it is, none-the less!

I spent the weekend with my friends in Charlotte and we had Yard Sale Pas Deux (I hope that's right - I never studied French).  Since I was tied to one location, I ended up shopping what was available to me - their really cool stuff.  I ended up with 3 items that I am très excited about. (What is it with the French this morning?  Maybe it's my YUMMY French pressed coffee??)


First I got this VERY cute basket that will be making an appearance on a surface top soon.  I'm seeing it filled with fall stuff now with a cute ribbon.  I dunno...

THEN I have been WAY overly inspired by Sarah over at Thrifty Decor Chick and her corner fireplace.  I live in a home that has a corner fireplace and it has been the bain of my existence since the day I moved in.  The only time it looks even REMOTELY cute is at Christmas.  For the other 10 months it sits nearly bare.  But look at what she did!!



(Shine isn't that the sweetest corner fireplace you've ever seen???)  Unfortunately since I currently rent where I live, doing the whole painting, molding treatment is out, BUT decorating it is NOT!  I'm working out what to put on the walls (which is going to be a combination of something else I saw in a blog and something I saw at TJ Maxx) and I hope to find something for the middle today, but I got the candle holders!  WOOT!!



These are going to become black... I think.

And then finally these are probably the thing I'm MOST excited about.  I hope to get them done this week or next weekend, and I'll reveal them soon.  But I think it's going to be COOL!!!




So what did you find this week??

It's MckLinky time!! Join the fun!
