Thrift Store

Ok, Miss Bonnie, you have got me started on the thrift stores!! I went to drop off 3 big bags of things to donate, from cleaning and de-cluttering here this week. I saw the above plaid shirt, it is just the most luscious of orange/pumpkin colors. Plaid and pretty!! For (drumroll please) 99 cents. Such a deal! I also saw a silver serving set, tarnished black, must have weighed 5 pounds...for $29.00. I did not get it, it is still there. I wonder if someone got tired of polishing it?? I also shopped in the jeans department, I almost live in jeans, it seems. And found a pair of "Cruel girl" jeans, with the store tag still on them, never been washed...$3.99. The store tag said $65.00. Yep, took those too! Fun!!
The above is a little quilt for a friend to be un-named until later. Just a peek...
Hope everyone is having a wonderful day! A little rain around our area, and wind from the receding hurricane, and many blessings that it was not worse on our coast.

You got some real bargains at the thrift store...you took three sacks and brought home some merchandise...keeps the economy afloat that way.

Enjoy all your blessings.

The new shirt will surely enjoy life as part of a quilt this fall!
