Yes, I know it's early but last year's resolution was to be more timely about getting things done, so, mission accomplished! ;) Seriously, resolutions are good motivators for me and in 2007 I want to create SOMETHING I can put up for sale on Etsy. I know I can, I just need to do. I don't know what I'll make but rest assured that it will involve mass amounts of paper and glitter.
Speaking of things I want to make, check out the vintage button rings at Relic Boutique:
So stinkin' cute! The November issue of country Living is pretty good, I must say.
Back to thrifting, how about this for a crappy photo?:
glass fruit & veggie motif pitcher - $2 - one of the tomato images is faded but for real, how cute?
pyrex pie dish - $3 - I have a thing for the fluted ones. Plus these aren't just for pie you know, I use mine for my BIG SALAD.
enamal jack o' lantern cup - 45 cents - he has a pretty big chip but would you have been able to resist him? I think not.
New Orleans pencil drawing - $2 - Luis and I loved our visit to the Big Easy and this will go nicely in the living room.
framed butterfly - $1 - I took this out of the frame and it says "litho in USA." I didn't like the frame but now I'm having second thoughts. Maybe I'll put it back?
I'm sure you're wondering just how long I'm going to draw out this ONE thrift trip? As I don't see any thrifting in my immediate weekend, I'm stretchin' this one for all I can. Luis and I are going to the amusement park tomorrow and I plan to spend my Sunday getting caught up on cleaning and laundry. Ooo, that sounds fun, oy.
Our hat today was done by my sister Mandi, also known as Hot Sauce! ;)
Nice use of red and black AND feathers. Mandi works part time at a scrapbook store, you can see her scrappin' blog here.
Have a great weekend i miei dolci, I'll think of you as I fold Luis' socks.
ciao - R
PS - SWAP UPDATE
Ha ha - I almost forgot, so I decided to add this in BOLD. Alright, enough bold. Anyway, I sent out Sarah's supplies earlier this week and I know mine are on their way from her, too, yeah! I promise to get Sara's supplies out at the beginning of next week (it's raining, long story, the Mets lost the NLCS, yada yada yada). Let me know what's going on with YOU! I haven't heard from Mary Beth & Linda so I hope all is well there.
