Coffee Scent All Day

Last week I showed you the treasures I bought when I went "junkin". Well, here is what I did with the copper looking tin. I poured coffee beans into the container and spread them as evenly as possible. I then added tea lights to it. I am not a coffee drinker but I LOVE the smell of coffee. The wonderful aroma of coffee permeates the room! I got this idea from my daughters' friends, Aimee and April. Thanks girls!

Treasure Hunting

On Monday, we had a "snow" day without snow but ice in certain parts of the state so my daughter and I went "junkin" or "treasure hunting". Here are my finds:
This is a "copper" like metal tray for $14.

A metal urn
I got this "Southern Living" candleholder for $2.00! (Repeat Street consignment store)

On Tuesday I had to go to Brandon and happened upon yet ANOTHER consignment store called "Forget Me Nots". I have fallen in lovvvvvvve with this place. I walked in for the first time to find a coworker there. She told me they really rotate their inventory well. The prices were great!

Maybe I will let you see where these items ended up in the near future!
Happy New Year!
