Makes Me Smile

I am a bit embarrassed to tell you that I followed (stalked) a woman around the thrift store. She was holding this print in her hand and looking at frames. I thought it was such a cute, colorful, fun watercolor. (I also saw the price on it $1.50.) Sometimes I do keep track of people because they don't always buy what they are carrying in their basket. (Any good thrift shopper knows...pick up what you are interested in and make the decision later) If you hesitate, it's GONE! Sure enough, she had 3 things in her hand and unloaded them in another part of the store (not where they belonged). I snagged this print. Love it.

Another thing I usually check out is the purse and wallets. I found 2 Brighton coin purses for $3 each. The brown one is just like a black one I got about a year ago. They are PERFECT inside. Appear to never have been used. Score!
Sorry the coin purse photos are a bit dark.
Don't forget your green for tomorrow!

A hodge podge of stuff....

 I found this adorable Laura Ashley comforter at the thrift store. I believe it was brand new because when I washed it, all the printing on one of the tags washed off. It's in perfect condition and a great size for snuggling when I watch TV.
A bargain at $3.

Found my lst grade picture while cleaning the garage.
My Mom made my dress and my babooska.
Sure cracked my kids up (and my hubby).

My 1st grade picture
Below is a picture of our new Fiat 500. My husband does Fiat repair and of the first 500 cars, we got car #78. (Picked for the year our son was born.)
Heck, with the price of gas, it's great to get 44 mpg!

My Mom and I went to visit my Dad and admired the beautiful flower garden out front. My Dad has always been into gardening so it made us both smile.

March Madness

Hi friends....
Couldn't pass up this cute mirror. Can you believe it? $2.39.
Going to put it by the back door as I go out to get in my car. I also found the sign below that I put above the back door. LOVE IT. $1.29
Thrift store for both (of course).

I finally finished another video. It's been a long while since I have done one.
The picture below is of the card that I did for my good friend, Cynthia's birthday. Watch the video for this simple card. HAPPY BIRTHDAY CYNTHIA.
