"Holy cow, not Christmas posts already!", she says as she staggers back into her chair after reading the header today.
Yup. But there's a reason for it; actually, two. First, I'm going to show you some awesome thrift store bargains that I picked up on Monday. Second, I'm introducing my new (and first ever) Craft Blog. Come along . . .
I'll start with the craft blog. I've always been an Artsy-Fartsy type of gal, and love to craft. There's never been a whole lot of time for it, what with raising two Aspy kids and my gardening passion. But this year I had a few ideas rolling around in the back of my head, so I decided, "Why not?"!
I don't have the confidence to open an Etsy or Lollishop store yet. If I plan all year, I might do one next year. Send out a prayer and wish me luck!

Monday I went to the thrift-store-beside-the-post-office, not expecting to find anything. Usually pickings are slim right after the weekend. But, I think everyone knew that I'd be heading that way, so they saved all the good stuff for me! Wasn't that thoughtful?
This little guy is 6" (15cm) tall and made in Japan. I'm going to put him on Ebay - unless any of you want him!
Four colorful Christmas poinsettia & holly napkins.
A cute patterned vintage Christmas stocking.
Two funky retro electric lamps.
Two blow mold candles that are 13-1/2" tall (34cm), and a string of (newer) bubble lights.
If you go to Monday's post you'll see all the smaller goodies I picked up also. Now, can you believe that I got all of this (plus the small items) at the unbelievable price of $5.00 for the whole box? I still can't believe it! What a great experience!
I'm looking forward to seeing all the interesting red items you have to share!
