So what is one of many things that Thriftygirl and I share in common? One guess! Thrifting of course. 🙂
So when she was down for her visit we went a-thrifting! We drove out to Prince Albert to stalk the aisles of Value Village and the Salvation Army Goodwill Store.
I found some cool english Pyrex and a James A Jobling Pyrex 535 casserole ($3 for both!) I also scored a bollywood-esqu table runner ($1), a jar of buttons ($1), old crochet and tatting thread ($1), some toques my son has ATM, cute dishes (25 cents each) and a heart-shaped earring tree ($1). This is just my SallyAnn haul. Thriftygirl got a ball of yarn for 25 cents, and that’s all! :O
The value village haul was pretty smurfy. Two unopened needlework kits ($1.99 & $2.99), some kids toys that have since been dispersed to bedrooms (forgot to take a before photo), some bar glasses for my sweetie, a ViewMaster, a houndstooth purse, yellow World of Trout corduroy bag, a smurf receiving blanket, and an adorable Gooseberry Pyrex 471 one pint casserole dish. I almost tackled Thriftgirl for it. Pyrexia took over my brain in that moment.
I’m pretty sure I’m forgetting some of my haul. 😦 ahhh well. It was awesome!
Jewelery-wise I’m working on some pieces and ideas for Earth Day themed jewelery. Buttons, paper, and some pretty crystals are on my worktable. I hope to start stocking them into my shop this weekend. I’ll be working on the ever important shop policies this evening, and hope to have the fine print in place by the end of the weekend.
I finished the Rib Tickler!! I’m pretty happy with it. Looks funky, and is warm and comfortable to wear in the house.
Well, I’m back to work on the new pieces! See you soon!
