Since I was busy last week with cleaning out the yard and Horror Monster, my craft stash, it left little time for large-scale thrifting.
Also, my budget has gone w-a-a-a-y beyond its limit for March.
I am glad April has now arrived.
I bought tiny treasures on a tiny budget.
This small brown floral Pyrex souffle' dish caught my eye hidden in a huge box of baskets.
An old wooden document frame, an ice cream scoop, and eight of those papier mache' gold floral coasters (made in Italy) were purchased.
I love aluminum kitchenware and though I am sorting through my collection for items to sell, I could not pass up these measuring spoons.
A tin bucket holds fake dirt and fake stone crop. Chucks did wonder why I would buy fake stone crop when we have a yard full of the living kind.
I told him it seemed as if everyone in Blogland had one so I got a super cheap one.
I could not believe the original price on this was $20 !!! Come by my house and I will give you live ones.
I might even pay you to take some!
I know I have this basket style in every size imaginable. I use them during the Fall to hold gourds, but I still bought another one!
Mainly to hold the dozens of items inside.
See the hint. Look at the cards.
What neat little card holders!
How many did I buy?
Who knows - they said fill the basket so I did.
I bought some molding a week ago to make some of these and planned to saw them this weekend.
Well, this takes care of that to do list!
At a previous thrift shop I had found this bag of blocks to use as card holders, but they have to be cleaned of sticky stuff. I will use them for some other project.
More Bingo cards.
Even I think I have enough of these now!
Don't be disappointed. I know several of you shop vicariously through my posts and love to see the big haul. Do not fret, my lovelies, my niece Leia and I have planned a Low Country Crawl for her birthday next week.
And when we fill a truck, we fill a truck!
