This weekend has sure been a busy one so far! I worked until noon on Friday, then I came home and did a few chores, and got ready to go to a Casting Crowns concert with Matthew West, Lindsay McCaul, and Royal Tailor. I went to bed at 2:30 this morning, and got back up at 6:30.
We started our day out mid morning, and we headed south to go junkin’. We went to a little flea market in Elvira first, then on to Clinton. While we were in Clinton, my youngest sister texted me and I asked her where she was. She was almost to Davenport, and I said that was where we were heading, so we joined up and had lunch at Red Robin, then we hit the thrift stores!
I decided to hang it in my west/east hallway with my other black and white items.
I found this little sign and loved it immediately. I had never seen that phrase before. It says, ‘One shoe can change your life.’ It’s signed Cinderella.
I found a place in my hallway to hang it up.
I bought another piece of my childhood today for 49cents. It is a baton. When I was a little girl, I REALLY wanted one. Other girls had batons that were skinny, like this one. When I asked my mom for one and I finally got it, it was ‘fat’ and I did not like it. I wanted the ‘real one’! I think I eventually got one, but I don’t have it now. Hence, this one!
I found a nice square clear container for thread, or something. Couldn’t pass it up and sure didn’t want anyone else to find it!
I found what I thought was a vintage sheet in a nice size for $3.50, and it ends up, it is a duvet cover, so I got double the sheet fabric. I will separate the two sheets and either use it for a quilt back/and or/rip for vintage fat quarters/and or use for fabric in making a quilt.
I found another sheet I liked. It will be used the same as the above duvet cover.
I shopped for my friend Renea today for fleece. She likes to use fleece for the backs of her scrappy flannel quilts. How’s this for less than $10? All pieces are nice large sizes. I think she and her hubby are afraid I’ll have to rent a U-Haul with my over zealous enthusiasm for spending her money! I could have found her plenty more!
I bought four green dish towels today to fold lengthwise and use on my counters under the ‘stuff’ I have sitting on my counters. This picture actually shows two folded together for more length to fit all four items.
This one is the left of the stove.
This one is to the right of the stove.
Louie bought this for Renea’s hubby. It’s a can koozie. He said Renea shouldn’t have all the fun!
Louie also got a pair of athletic shoes. How do they look for $3.16?
We got home a little after 7pm, and Louie turned on the tv, and has been snoring since. I’m heading to bed soon. Hopefully I can get more than four hours of sleep tonight, and hopefully I can convince myself to be lazy tomorrow so I can rest up for work on Monday. Update! I slept 8 hours straight! I never do that! I’d probably still be sleeping, but nothing says ‘Good Morning!’ like a leg cramp!
What’s that? Oh, sewing machines? Nope, none today! I did see some, but they were either too modern, (I stay away from plastic internal gears) or whoever priced them thought they worked in an antique store!
Have a great Sunday everyone!
