Oh, wow, did I hit pay dirt today! I was up really early so I could go get my nails done and get to the thrifties before I went to work. Lookie at all I got for $14.25!!!! I can't even believe it!! I can't even get it all into one pic! I've finished some of the redo's but haven't yet decided where it all will go -- but, I picked the right day to go thrift shopping! The thrifties were busy with us die-hearts who ventured out in sub-zero weather, but traffic was light because I think a lot of peeps went downtown to see Pres-Elect Obama, whose train trip to Washington started here in Philly. Man-o-man, what finds I got!! Got this great tin sheep for $1.00!!! And the basket (50 cents), unpainted birdcase (25 cents), fake red ware jar (1.00), and unpainted heart (25 cents). The 2 skeins of yarn were 10 cents a piece, painted candle (75 cents!!)..... And the cutest narrow "cracker box" for... 1.00!! The cutest framed sampler--1.25!
So, of course I can't get to the whole redo tonite, esp snce I have to go into the office early tomorrow morning, but here's what I did so far. Painted the box, and put washcloths and handtowels in there for the bath. Took the bowl (10 cents!!) and made some yarn balls from the yarn I got, and added some spools...
and took the odd wooden wall hanging thingie, painted it, added a prim sign and a few stars -- not sure where they will go yet... not sure I like those stars -- may have to make a change... yep, I can do something else with that...
Still have lots more to do, but I think I may just look at all my goodies for a while!
I worked from home for about 3 hours -- we are having major issues with internet service (could be because of the frigid temps) so I was off and on with work, which I hope doesn't happen after I haul up to the office tomorrow. I'm lucky I had my wireless service here at home, because the broadband is very slow, and sometimes won't connect at all. Cable went out for a while, too. It is unbearably cold, but tomorrow should be better -- in the 30's -- which will feel like a heat wave! So, I had a busy, busy day, and I'm beat -- so hopefully, I will get home in time to watch the EAGLES WIN tomorrow, and then play with all these thrifties!! Hope everyone is staying warm and toasty.
By the way, do any of you sell candle tarts? I found out today that Yankee Candle doesn't make my favorite (Mulled Cider) in tarts anymore :>( ~so what to do???
...the next season
