Ah...another Thrifty Thursday!
You don't know how much I love typing those words!
I'm still ever hopeful that I will find my stride with thrifting here in North Texas.
It's proved to be a bit more difficult to find the "FINDS", even in the small towns.
That said, I did find a couple things this week!!
For less than what I would have spent on a Triple Venti Latte, (we won't get started on how much I miss having a Starbucks in close proximity. Nope...we just won't), I brought home these two scores!
I always look thru the baskets that are inevitably piled up in every G'Willy's from coast to coast. You might recall I've discovered a few Longabergers for a song! And while this isn't a Longaberger,
to me it's a little better! Handwoven egg basket! or butt basket!
I immediately grabbed it off the pile and was proudly carrying it thru the store while I looked at other things. The hubby looked at me strange, like "what's the big deal". I said "Are you kidding me!? It's a handwoven egg basket!?! LOOK! Look at the tacks! Look at the bottom! Just LOOK!"
And did you see the cost? Three bucks! Seriously? I'll take it! It's really lovely,
and I immediately remembered that somewhere in a closet, I have reeds, and t pins, and all the things I need to weave my own. I really need to dig that stuff out!
And before we left, I had said I really hoped I would find some cool art pottery like I used to.
Well, the power of suggestion worked!
Thanks to Jenni, and her foray into pottery making in 2001, I have a new spoon rest!
For a buck. I had a pottery spoonrest from a prior thrifting adventure, but it somehow never turned up once we moved down to Texas. Hmmm...not sure where it is. But now I have another!
A couple more parting shots of the handwoven loveliness....
My hope has been restored!
Thrifty Thursday may actually find it's way back to the blog on a regular basis!
