Organizing, and sewing just a little bit!
Happy Friday! It is my weekend to work, so I will be at the hospital tomorrow...so I must accomplish some things today. I am trying to clear out every little bit of every project started. If I start now, don't sleep, and don't eat...and no potty breaks..I will be finished by 2542 AD. Hee!! Not really, but I really am trying to get some stuff done!I have been going through one room a day, organizing, cleaning, and donating stuff to our charity here in town. I found this basket of pieces and parts, and so made pinwheels from them...don't know what to do with them yet...maybe it will come to me in a dream? or a comment, LOL??
But...I live in an older neighborhood, and we have estate sales from one house to the next...all the time. I swear, we all swap our junk around...pretty soon I will be buying back my own garage sale stuff, LOL!! Anyway, I found a lady who did lots of needle work. She had dozens of really pretty pillows she had made...who could resist this pretty owl pillow? I think it is crewel work. Lots of needlepoint pillows there too.
And a pretty blue tea set...for seven dollars? It came home too...
And silver. It is silver plate, but is old and worn, and I just love it. $5.00 I can really use the serving pieces...don't care if they don't match.
And a crystal little pitcher.
And three blouses, $1.00 each, that are in the wash now.
So, a pretty fun little shopping expedition for $20.00, and I needed none of it!! So.. stay tuned for my big GARAGE SALE!!!! snort!!
