My finds...

I was looking for a small stool for my kitchen. I have no island, or bar, but my daughter loves to come into the kitchen and watch me cook/ or help me. I thought i would be nice if I could find an inexpensive stool she could sit on. She usually drags a chair from the dining room. So, I went by a local thrift store in town and look what I found for 15.00.....I thought it was a pretty good deal you cant tell from the pics but its really sturdy and in very good shape.
I also got some flowers from the funeral. From my hubby's grandad's passing away. His nana kinda gave them out. She couldnt care for them all. I took this one out of what it was in which is was with another plant and put it in a nicer pot. What do you think,
We also got this(from the funeral) , its called a corn plant I think. I thought I was very pretty.
And the bird that was in it that the kids insisted a take a picture of:

So is my find, and my new additions. What do you all think? Its a shame that these got here though through the loss of a loved one, but it helps to remember them when you look at the pretty plant and remember where you got it.

We will miss you Grandad!

The flowers are really pretty. I just went today to get a few plants to go on our hearth to cover up the fireplace for spring/summer. I like the stool too - I need a more sturdy stool in my kitchen too.
