Valentines Day Sale

Well, we did it.  “Mom and Me”  went down to the store and drew hearts on a ton of inventory. Everywhere you look you should see a heart.  What this means for you is that the items with a heart on them are now 25% off their normal low price.  I forgot to tell Mom that this was the reason we were drawing hearts on the tags.  She almost had her own “heart” attack over it. (get it)   She reminded me of Red Foxx as Fred Sanford on the old TV Show “Sanford and Sons.”  (Hand over chest – looking skyward)

Stop in the store (downtown Colorado Springs at 324 E, Pikes Peak) and every item with a red heart on the tag – take it up to the counter and they will automatically take 25% off its already low price. 

I’ve got some new ideas I am trying out that I will write about later today.  I’m putting the finishing touches on them now. 

Until next time, repurpose, recycle, and stay green.

Ready to Spring Forward

I love fall colors.  The rich warm browns, the warm yellows, the burnt oranges.   I say this because I don’t want you to think me callous when I say I am looking forward to spring.   We just put much of our linen on sale for Valentine’s day, and while I know it’s not quite spring yet, it’s the holiday before Easter and that is when we trot out all of our Spring colors.  That got me thinking about spring and the rest is history.  I can hardly wait.

As many of you know, I search for unique ways to repurpose stuff, especially linens.  Well, I found a great site called Pinterest (www.pinterest.com)  You need to sign up to request access to enjoy the benefits offered by this site, but believe me – it’s worth it.  It’s a Treasure Shoppe on the internet, all by itself.  Take time to read how to use the site, than explore.  Be careful however, it’s addictive.  I get so many great ideas there, I don’t want to leave.  In between clicks I do manage to say hello to my husband – once in awhile, then back to the research.

When you are granted full user access, just for giggles, type in “repurpose.”   You’ll be there all night.

Until next time, repurpose, recycle and stay green.
