Crafts, Thrift Finds, And A New Obsession!
I finally finished Elizabeth's February Tag Along! Elizabeth provides the images, and you make them your own way. Sorry for the wonkyness of this picture, but it's so hard to get a good shot of glittery stuff, and it's actually a sunny day for once!
I found this at a thrift store. Again, hard to take a good shot, and you can see my camera in there! I'm a sucker for anything with a cottage on it. It says on the back " Little Sunbeam Plaque". I had to have it!
One of the thrift stores that I go to every Saturday helps battered women, so I'm always happy when I find something there to buy. It's a great cause. Just as I was leaving the store, a couple of men started bringing in box after box filled with bouquets of flowers and potted plants, all donated from Trader Joe's. I picked up three bunches of these gorgeous tulips, and was so happy to share them with my Mom. They were $1 a bunch.
I also got this campanula plant, which is a perennial and will be going in the garden this spring. Also $1.
I also got some paperwhites, which smell heavenly! Does anyone know if I can save the bulbs and try to force them next winter? These were also $1.
I also got this card at the thrift store, for 12 cents. I love anything Mary Engelbreit, so I grabbed it. Dorothy definitely had it right. There's no place like home!
And finally, why didn't anybody ever tell me how great this show is??? I'd always been meaning to watch it, but I hate getting tied to the TV every week. I haven't done that since Friends. But a few months ago my daughter started watching it online, and said it was great, so I got the first season from the library. I watched it all in a couple days, and have requested the second season from another library. This is one of the best shows ever, and I'm so caught up in these characters! I can't wait to see what happens next....
