Met Monday

Hello, Dear Ones! Oh, how exciting ~ it's Met Monday again! WooHooness! I want to thank our Diva Susan for hosting this most fun event! Pop on over to her blog Between Naps on the Porch and you can travel all over the Land of Blog and see so many projects. Oh, but don't forget to look at my post before you go! ;)



Okay! I want to share a little project with you that doesn't cost a whole lot of money! You know how we all love Ross and Marshalls, well if you run and don't walk there you too can complete this project and save yourself a bit of cash.

Lookee!!Dishes! You know how I love my dishes. I was in Marshalls last week - looking at dishes of course and saw these little lovelies! I fell in love with them immediately and had to have them! Just when you walk inside the door of Marshalls you're saving money, right? ;)
Step One: I first just bought six of these chargers. What was I thinking? Well, I immediately went back! You see not only are these dishes just the cutest things you've ever seen~ Dear Ones, these are called Emma's Garden by Spode!! I was just so excited I can't even remember exactly how much they cost! It certainly wasn't much ~ somewhere from $3.99 to $5.99 each! I just know I got a great deal! ;) Oh, I don't save my receipts! Mr. Precious has wanted me to do that from since we were first married - but I just forget! :) I'm too busy saving him money!
Step Two: I headed right on over to the dish displays and popped six of the dinner plates into my shopping cart! $1.99 each! Now I made an effort to remember that!
Step Three: Six of the desserts plates found their tiny way into my cart also! Again, $1.99! What a deal!
Step Four: All the dishes were unwrapped, washed and hid, um, I mean put away very neatly.

There you have it, Dear Ones. A simple project you can all achieve with just a little cash. Heck, save your cash and use your credit card! You can spend more on this project if you buy these lovely little dishes elsewhere! But remember, Marshalls and Ross are a project gal's best friend. Don't you agree?

No credit cards were seriously hurt by the making of this project and I saved my tiny dollar bills to buy a milkshake! A gal needs nourishment after such an intense project as this! :)

Make your husband happy like I make my Mr. Precious happy - save him some money! And if you hide, um, I mean gently put away your dishes until a later time, when you hubby says, "Honey, where did these dishes come from?" Your tiny reply will be, "These old things! I've had them quite a long time!"

Now go on out to Marshalls and save your hubby some money! ;)

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

If you've got the money I've got the time
We'll go honky tonkin' and we'll have a time

We'll make all the night spots dance drink beer and wine
If you've got the money honey I've got the time
There ain't no use to tarry so let's start out tonight
We'll spread joy oh boy oh boy and we'll spread it right
We'll have more fun baby all way down the line
If you've got the money honey I've got the time
If you've got the money I've got the time
We'll go honky tonkin' and we'll have a time

Bring along your Cadillac leave my old wreck behind
If you've got the money honey I've got the time
Yes we'll go honky tonkin' make every club in town
We'll go to the park where it's dark we won't fool around
But if you run short of money I'll run short of time
Cause you with no more money honey I've no more time
If you've got the money I've got the time
We'll go honky tonkin' and we'll have a time

We'll make all the night spots dance drink beer and wine
If you've got the money honey I've got the time
