Well, Hello CHAIRS!

It's been months since I've darken the doors of my local Salvation Army. But yesterday I was feeling something calling me from deep inside the store.
I walked around and first found the cute swivel yellow stool.
Other then the layer of dirt and wobbly back it was perfect.
Then I found the cute pink and yellow chairs. It was love at first sight! One of the chairs was "recovered" with fabric and cat hair which I promptly removed when I got home and found the yellow vinyl seat was still in great condition.
A little citrus cleaner and elbow grease and I have three new retro chair in my craftroom!

Not sure why, but the pink is two different shades of pink.
Maybe one lived in the sunlight for years.

They look right at home!

I also got this great salt shaker, which is now a prisma glitter shaker.
And the picture which I really wanted just for the frame,
but now the picture is starting to look cute to me.

What did I pay for all this you ask?
An unbelievable $17.00!

That also included a road atlas and two other books.
