Shabby Chic, thrift stores and garage sales!

$1.30 cents plus tax! That's how much it cost me to decorate my kitchen table this weekend!

I found this shabby chic, vintage, hand-embroidered doille (and others) at a garage sale up the street, for a dime. It washed up beautifully! There is crocheting around the edge!

The apple juice bottles above caught my blue eyes, when I spotted them on a shelf at Goodwill. They were .29 each. and I knew they'd make adorable vases to keep or give away! I have two beautiful Bleeding Heart plants at their I brought a few clippings to enjoy inside!
Other treasures found while I was out garage sailing and thrift store shopping?
A pair of Hollister camo-pants for me, a Michigan Football hoodie for Tommie for next Fall for .99, a Young Indian Jones video, Dessert Storm video, and canning jars.
I stopped off at our homeschool groups curriculum sale and was overjoyed to find a new WW2 curriculum, complete with unused maps and workbook style reading comp. questions. Also a good WW2 book. (Missed seeing you, Lisa...but asked about you! I know you were getting rained on at the soccer field!)
My mom stopped over and the best deal of the week? All of this thread for just .50 grand total! It will be great for felted wool projects!

Well, Happy Mother's Day if you're a mom. Happy Spring Sunday if you're not. I am hoping the weather holds out, because I'd really like the boys and I to go on a 10-mile bike ride. Off to church, I am really looking forward to it. Missed last week.
smile, wink, nod.
