With our record setting 100+ degrees days this summer, we hardly had any yard sales going on. I finally found one and bought 21 quart Ball jars w/lids (lids are in a box), wooden clothespins, and some nice smooth rocks... which my daughter took to look at and I haven't seen em since. =]
The nice lady bundled it all up and quoted me $10. Well I forgot that some kiddos had been in my wallet earlier and I only had $9.76 to give her, lol. Thankfully, she took it. I will use these mainly for craft supplies and for Christmas gifts.
I am fascinated with jars of all sizes, shapes, and colors! Found these fun scrabble pieces at a yard sale for 25 cents.
I won a wonderful giveaway from my friend Linda at Parker's Paradise. You all know sweet Linda... the giver of her heart to all people. It seems like daily when I'm reading blogs she is blessing someone again with wonderful goodies! She's been on a roll with her stitching and wanted to share. Thankfully for me and some others, she did share! I love everything about this piece! She did such a great job picking out pieces for all the winners.
I also received this wonderful "Home Grown" towel. It looks beautiful on my linen ladder that's in my Dining Room. See the very pretty appliqued piece right under it... another precious piece from precious Linda at a different time. I get SO many compliments on this piece Linda!
Thank you sweet Linda for your generosity. You truly are one of a kind girl and we all love you so!!
If you haven't discovered Pinterest yet... DON'T!! Lol, just kidding. It can get very addicting once you get going and start using it. If you're not sure what I'm talking about, check out the red box with a P on my sidebar. Pinterest is a virtual bulletin board where you can pin almost anything you see on the internet. Anyway, I came across this nifty idea for a twine holder and pinned it to a board.
One of my best friends is a Stampin' Up Demonstrator so I'm always ordering from her. I recently bought their baker's twine and I love it! You get 25 yards for $2.95.
So of course, I had to have a nifty little holder for it once I had it tea dyed. Dollar Tree has these awesome, heavy glass sugar shaker jars for one buck! Perfect!
I've been on a tag making kick for some reason. Just listed a few more in my Etsy shop. This baker's twine is gonna look great with some tags I'm in the process of making that are more prim.
If you are on Pinterest and I'm not following you yet, give me a shout... I would love to see what all you are pinning. =]
Wishing you a grand week~
