Goodwill Goodie Makeover Monday

First ~ I want to thank you for the birthday wishes!  I had a a fantastic week.

Second ~ I would like to ask for some prayers for DH and myself.  Yesterday was an extremely trying Sunday School class again and we are feeling very discouraged.  I strongly feel that the Lord is calling us to lead this class, but at times (like yesterday) we feel like throwing the towel in.

Third ~ this week's makeover!  Once again, it's a double makeover.  I already have the perfect spot picked out and can't wait to get it hung!

Here's the before ~

I picked the spoon rack up at Goodwill for $.50 and the spoons from Dollar General for $1. 

We had trick-or-treating on Saturday and the weather was terrific.  A bit chilly after the sun went down, but no wind and clear skies!  DS and DD waited until the last minute to decide what to dress like, which caused a bit of stress for us all.  Thank goodness we were able to find 2 costumes and at 50%.  I usually don't purchase costumes ~ I have all the costumes my mom made for us and DD has 2 totes full of play costumes.  However, this year they decided they needed to be vampires ~ not my first choice, but they did look the part.  For safety reason (I'm a bit paranoid), I will not post photos of them that show their faces.  I do think these photos are safe to share.

I wouldn't mess with this pair, would you?!?


  1. are safe. I wouldn't have recognized them even if we did see you Saturday night!! LOL. Sorry about Sunday School.....this may be God telling you to hand this responsibility over to someone else?? Maybe?? Just a thought...will be praying for you.

  2. Blake is thinking the same thing ~ but T wants us to stay on as he will be the class next year. Thanks!

  3. they look great! very realistic--if you know what vampires really look like?
