my major thrifting finds & muffin tin monday, pm edition

I wandered into the local thrift store late last week and it was 50% off all furniture that day. I found this King Size headboard and paid $5. Right now, I call our Master Bedroom the dorm room b/c it is a hodgepodge of mismatched furniture, and we have NO headboard. I think this has some serious potential in either white or maybe even something more fun like blue, or green? If that goes totally wrong, it will make a terrific, heavy base for an upholstered headboard, right? Always working the Plan B, I am.
And then I saw this chair. It came home with me for $6. I only wish there had been two with arms b/c a pair would be even more splendid. I already purchased black spray paint for this one and I plan to get some black and white fabric for the seat cover, maybe a toile.

We had friends over to swim at lunch on Monday so the muffin tins came out for dinner and were brought to the girls by the letter P.
Popcorn
Pink Lemonade
Peaches
Pineapple
Pudding
Pasta (Mac N Cheese)

My girls have started to tell others about muffin tin monday which is quite confusing to the unsuspecting human trying to figure out what the heck they are talking about!

Hahaha! I often get a "Muffin Tin What?" but I just tell them about it. Most people still don't understand until they try with their kiddos. And then, well, they can't get enough. My kids ask for it everyday!
