You don't know how happy I am to be posting this Thrifty Thursday post! Because that means that it's THURSDAY! WOOOHOO! The work week is almost done!
An outing on Sunday afternoon and then a quick stop off this evening netted these great finds for the week!
I pick these carved wooden boxes up every time I see them. The others I have are rectangle...so this is my first square one!! Seventy-nine cents!!
And this sweet little blue & white creamer....
I need to clean off the bottom to make out the mark, but it's lovely....and was just seventy five cents!
Scored some linen!
A roll of 26 ct...which I thought would be useful when I decide to tackle an over one project! Then a roll of 28...another 32 ct and then a 36 ct! Each was just $1.50!! A stitcher can never have too much back up linen for smaller projects!
It's all sitting in this!
Wonderful woven basket from World Market. This was $5.99....but large and nice and will be put to immediate use holding knitting projects by my chair!
Oh but wait! There's more.....with a story!
You may remember me saying that my hubs has decided that he actually likes going thrifting with me. And you may also remember me saying that he has begun to interject snarky comments when I pick up something that I'm thinking of purchasing. You may remember that he doesn't understand the concept of COLLECTING things!!
On more than one occasion, he has picked up some hideous item and when I give him a query-look....he feigns a hurt feeling (he may only have one....feeling...some days)...he feigns a hurt feeling and says "Uh! But I COLLECT these!". Well...one time he decided that each and every time he saw a bunny...no matter if cute..cuddly...ugly...broken...or not.....every time he now sees a bunny...he acts all excited and says "It's another one...for my COLLECTION". Keep in mind...he doesn't REALLY collect bunnies....snarky guy! Now..on many an outing...my buddy Kimm would point out bunnies and threaten to start actually purchasing them and starting my dear old hubs out with his bunny collection...just to freak him out a bit.
Well....I did just that!!!
We're out together Sunday afternoon.....and I spy this guy...
He's actually a very nice bunny....English-looking...debonaire....very colorful and I really was attracted to the piece! $3.00. So....in the cart it went. Hubs was a couple aisles over...but he must have spied me putting him in the cart. The LOOK on his FACE was priceless! It was a confused look...followed by a "Oh no you DIDN'T" look. He came across the store and said "WHAT did you just put in your cart?" and I busted out laughing....."A BUNNY honey! Isn't he CUTE!? I think I'll start collecting them!" LOLOL
Revenge is mine! And I have an English-debonaire-colorful bunny to prove it! Which I actually like! Am I REALLY going to collect bunnies? Absolutely not! But that will teach him! And hey....he better watch it...because word has it that Kimm was thinking of starting a gawdy napkin holder collection for him next! ;o)
The winner of the drawing was #5...Catherine wrote - "Oh what a lovely quilt! Please include me for a chance at the scraps - the things one could do with those...." Congrats, Catherine! Let me know where I should mail the scraps! Can't wait to hear what you do with them!
Thanks for everyone's comments....it's always fun to read them!
