Goodies & Roses

over the weekend my bf & i stopped by my local goodwill. my intent was to look for a gray purse so that i could take the straps off and use it on my crocheted purse that i made, but i didn't find any. =( unfortunately, my bf's intent was to buy as much junk as he could. lol he ended up getting a few cds (bsb, nsync, etc), a few dvd movies, a photo cube (totally useless, but i didn't want to hear him complain, so i let him have it), and a few other misc things. i, on the other hand, grabbed a frame (which was new and only 1.99), an asian food container (also new), a rectangle glass container to hold my nail art(i'll post the finished product soon), a white flower vase (only 2.99), a wooded elephant, and an owl figurine. i love owls, and the elephant was super cute.

i actually spray painted the elephant and the owl white yesterday to go with the decor in my room.

i still need to do a second coat, and then they should be done. i love how paint can transform anything old into something new and modern.

the same day, i also went into ulta to get my free item. since it took me forever to finally go to ulta, there weren't that many choices left on the nail polishes, so i picked "fine pruned". which, i thought was a really nice color. i've been looking for something similar for my sister. anyway, i also got around to trimming my nails and finally using my new konad image plates i got a couple weeks ago. 

 i love the rose print. i wanted to do it over newspaper printed nails, but i couldn't find our rubbing alcohol. =(
the rose print is on the right one, image plate m65.

Nice figures and good thinking about painting them. Sometimes you forget to turn something old to new. Nice nail color you pick from Ulta. LOVE IT.
