It is faREEEEEZING here in South Dakota this week. Monday was cold. Tuesday it snowed most all day and into the night and we ended up with about 7" of lovely very fluffy snow on the ground. The problem came with the WIND! BITTER cold WIND! and lots of it! Blizzard conditions thru the night and into the morning on Wednesday. Can you say -22 Wind Chill? Brrrrrr! That was my yesterday! It was all I could do to walk across the parking lot from my Santa Fe to the office building. So you might imagine that I wasn't out gallavanting around looking for thrifty things this week. Quite the contrary. I was hibernating!
BUT....knowing that it was Wednesday, and a Thrifty Thursday post was next up...for you, dear readers, I sacrificed my warmth and coziness and ventured out after work yesterday in search of possible Thrifty Thursday finds. I only went to one store and came home with a few finds!
First find, not photographed because boring, was a lovely wooden drying rack for the laundry room for 1.99. I've been needing one..and, well, there it was so I brought it home.
I tried. I walked away....I backed the cart up...I studied it again...it was lovely...it has the raised mountainous regions! It was straight on it's axis....I could not pass up the $5.99 globe. I am in need of therapy. Also in the pic there, you'll notice a bundle of colorful rulers. These were all bundled together for $.99 so I grabbed them. I've seen many cool projects being done with rulers....figured I best grab then when I see them and then when the creative urge hits...I'll have a great assortment!
Not a very exciting Thrifty Thursday, but hey....did I mention it's faREEEEZING outside?
I was warmed by the sight of a box from Moda Fabrics when I got home. Thank goodness the UPS guy ventures out every day regardless of the temps!
Aaaaaah.....civil war fabrics!
So excited to see Civil War Homefront by Barbara Brackman when I opened the box! I've got four bundles remaining....$89.99, which includes US shipping.
The colors are yummy...the prints very civil-war.....a winning line again! Thank you Barbara Brackman!
I hope you're staying warm and dry wherever you are! I'm hopeful this weather will break and then I'll have some ground to make up for thrifting! It is, however, December......in South Dakota........so I may just have to suck it up, bundle up, and make up for lost thrifting time!
