The top picture was a thrift shop find from a few weeks ago.
Ok, I kind of forgot about it,
it was in the back of my car
and it just made it to the house last night.
How can anyone pass up those train cases?
This one was only $1.00
found at St. Vincent de Paul
and in perfect shape.
It is going in the camper.
The melamine dishes
for all of those.
We were at an antique mall last night and just the

Truthfully, that is what made me remember they were in the back of the car.
This little lamp was found at
B and E Depot
just outside of Kittanning.
I love that place!
Barbara is always so friendly
we have such fun chats
while I shop.
If her hubby is there,
he is always ready to hand me
a fresh cup of coffee!
I decorated the shade with some pennants....
And here it sits!
I found these cute little hankies last night.
I want to made the girls pillows
with those folded into butterflies.
I will be heading to
to figure that out!
not the greatest picture.

Pittsburgh to get my printer fixed
That could be a whole blog post in itself,
but we aren't going to relive that again.

If you live in the Pittsburgh area

YOU HAVE TO GO THERE!!!
I love that place
walking through the door
wish that I still lived in the city!
I found this linen cloth to stitch,
a few other items
that I actually put away already.
I seriously go on sensory overload
everytime I am there.
I thought of a few other projects
from items I saw there....
which would probably
explain why I made a few wrong turns
and even went down a closed street.

This place is so nice?
The people are friendly
it is clean and arranged so welcoming!
The prices are very reasonable
there is really something for everyone!
I have been looking for something like this for my table for a couple of months.
Not willing to pay the prices that I have been seeing,
this one fit the table
I am going to paint it
and distress it.
In my mind,
that is going to happen today
along with completing

Does anyone know what this thread is used for?
I found it in my cleaning up
in a box of my aunt's craft supplies.
It almost feels like wool
and I wonder if it came out of a kit.
Has anyone ever seen it?
this is it,
I have rambled on long enough.
I went to a home party
a week or so ago.
I was curious.
I had never heard of it before.
I bought this
when I got home last night
it was on my kitchen counter.
JWS agreed to hang it immediately
I am really liking this.
When I bought it,
I was not sure where I would put it,
but really this is the perfect place.
Now let's see how many people bump their head on it!
I am already thinking what I am going to paint to put on it in the spring.
Maybe I should figure that out BEFORE
I get behind the wheel of the car again!
