Over the weekend I was out doing errands and for me, that means a stop at the thrift stores. Happily I found some fun things….
There are several different thrift stores where I went and this is a conglomeration of everything I found. The metal shelf…$5. I love these for my African Violets. It doesn’t matter if I spill water when I water the plants and it holds quite a few of them. I had recently said to Hubby that I wanted another shelf.
The little pots are a rubbery plastic with no holes in them. I will use these for my African Violets. These will be the outside pots that I set another pot with drainage holes into.
The little handmade counted cross pincushion was 25 cents. Can you believe it?! That actually makes me feel sad. A lot of hard work went into creating that!!
I’ve sworn myself off and told myself NO MORE COOKBOOKS!!! Well I saw these and Hubby does have a collection of fireman things….Do you suppose I could justify them as a purchase for his fireman collection? It sounded good in my head…so now I am committing to making at least five things from each of the books in the upcoming months. By the way, Hubby had a great big chuckle over my reasoning for buying these.
I also got a bag of 100% cotton shirts. There are 10 here and the cost $4 total. Most are Old Navy shirts. I love them for cutting up.
I also got a bag of scrappy fabric goodies…$2. I love the little novelty prints. Don’t you?
Best yet, I found some yardage. The rolled piece was 1 3/4 yards…the white pieces was $1 and there’s 3 yards there.
I also found a binder for 50 cents. They had several there. I debated over which color to pick and finally settled of pink. My reasoning…if I can’t find it, I’ll find it easier if it’s a bright color.
I already have started using it. Remember I said I was loving many of the free scrappy patterns at Quilted Twins. Well I’ve printed a few and am putting them in this binder.
Well I spent just under $20 and had lots of fun too. I found some things that were treats…some wants and some needful things. I will say it again and again. I love that I live where I do for MANY reasons…one of them is the awesome thrift stores we have in the area.
