Our trip to Canton

Me, Kristin and one of my friends headed to Canton early Saturday morning.  We were there right when it opened and it was Awesome.  The weather was beautiful for a LONG day of shopping.  We each had a list of stuff we were looking for, and I think we did pretty good accomplishing our goal.  Our car was pretty full, good thing we had a big vehicle to bring everything home, I would have hated to go back next month and pick it up.  Smile 

Here are a few of my good finds.

I have seen some really awesome projects made with old windowpanes, so I was on a mission to get one.


The other thing I really wanted to come home with, was some old shutters to redo.  I did find one and I also picked up some cabinet panels for a couple projects.




I bought 2 of these thinking I would paint them and put them in my living room, but I think they are too small.  Sooo I am going to put them on my back porch.  This will give me a reason to get my porch all fixed up, and the concrete stained.


I have a sewing machine, but don’t really have time or know how to use it very good.  But I found these for only a $1.00 a piece.  They are nice material and would be perfect for throw pillows.  Now who wants to make me some??



Last year I made a Mesh ribbon wreath, but it pretty much stunk.  So when I was in Canton and saw these wreaths everywhere and how they were using the mesh ribbon on them I knew I needed one.  (I'm not sure if that is what the ribbon is really called but that’s what I call it)  But I posted a picture just in case you have no idea what I'm talking about.  So hopefully, I will be able to make mine better this time around.

I also got a cute dress, necklace, and some new scrubs!

Kristin and my friend Amber both came home with some good finds.  Maybe someday we can get Kristin to write a post about it.  Smile

IF you ever get a chance to go to Canton, you should go.  I could go every month if I was rich and had time.



  1. Hello. Just stumbled across your blog and saw your post about the mesh wreath. I am also going to try one this year and found this tutorial in Pinterest and thought I'd share just in case you hadn't seen it.

    Have a great weekend.
