Gathering for the Plan with a little help from Blogland

Have you ever woken up, turned on your laptop and had your day made?
That was me, Friday morning as I was sipping on my coffee with a long day ahead of me. I will try to be brief but will probably fail.  As I have been working with this plan of mine to knowingly redecorate with purpose.  I have repeatedly ran into the great big wall of " lack of fiances".  I was blessed beyond belief with a comforter (read previous post).  I still have a few things on my list of finds.  Fabric to cover my chair and a really cool rug to pop.  I see it in my head, mod, large flowers, bright colors, and when I see something close I cringe at the price tag.  I check Overstock, Home Decorators, random rug places online.   I mean hours of looking at rugs that don't fit, get excited about rugs until I see the price, and other random ways of suffering emotional whiplash.  Ok I tell you the drama so you can see the  blessing.

Alright, cue lights and hallelujah music picked me!!!
  Yes, little ole me as there winner of a CSN gift certificate!!!!!  (add bells and whistles here)
I have heard of CSN through out blogland but have never been.  Here is the link in case you have never been
So I of  course went to the rugs and found this rug originally 50 dollars marked down to 28.  I applied my 25 certificate and only paid 3.99 for it.  Free shipping and even a free rug pad to go underneath.  I was squealing with delight much to the disgusted looks of our family cat.
Thank you soooooooo much wonderful, generous, sweet woman @ Junkin Junky!!!
ps, I love your blog <3
Isn't is pretty? <3 sigh <3

I was so inspired to do more.  So I dug out this ceiling fan I have had for over 3 years.  I was going to put it in my daughter's room but then she decided she didn't want it.  I bought it at Lowe's for like 7 dollars!!!
I figured it was white and better than my existing crappy light.  So with the help of my son.
The fan works too.  It's so nice to be able to teach the youth today a little electrical ability. 
I love it when a plan comes together.
