YAY! I'm back!!! First off let me apologize to blogger.....inability to load pics...not their problem! I've had a wacko laptop for about a week...driving me crazy with the lag time and nothing wanting to load! Finally...today...solution...after checking wireless cards etc. Nope...it was the router dying a slow, painful death. I went all Kervorkian on it, and just put it out of its misery and got a new one. And HERE we are! Pics and all! :o)
$5.30 was spent on Monday.....and here's what my kitchen table looked like Monday evening!
Okay--the fabric was not found at the thrift store. It was a Hancock's order of sale Kaffes and some non-sale Kaffes, but they just happened to arrive on Monday and so they made it in to the pic! More on those in another post! On to the thrifty finds!
So five bucks and change....love that jar. I plan to put my Scrabble tiles in there! I've been looking for a plain jane clear lidded jar. This one will work for now..and for a buck!
Then I picked up three of these nice little plates...
to add to my collection of blue and white plates I've been saving up! The plan is to have an entire section of wall adorned with blue and white plates of all sizes! These are lovely...crazed...from Japan. Fifty cents each. I left the dinner plates and the saucers at the GW....just brought home these three. See---I was good---showed restraint.
I couldn't pass up this cut glass pedestal bowl. Again for a buck!
It's in excellent condition...no chips or anything! Heavy and just lovely! And..those cherry stems...super shiny..and RED...and a buck-fifty for the bundle. And there's my five bucks and change in one outing!
Now...the hubs decided he would go out on his own. And this can only mean trouble. He thinks he's being so funny....that hubs of mine. This scary thing suddenly showed up...
Oh yes...he says HE is now going to add to HIS bunny collection...
Is this not the ugliest thing? The thing is kinda scary! Looks all whacked out...cracked egg and all! And it keeps showing up in strange places around the house! Jake was scared by it when it suddenly appeared in the bathroom..where one would see it only once they sat down to --ahem-- to do their business. Ah yes...the game is on now. I don't, however, really want a house full of ugly demented bunnies! What to do..what to do!
