I was cleaning Pre-Teen's room a few days back and while doing so decided to count her paper money that was crumpled up in a box. The kid had $250 in there! She's one of those rare kids that never spends money and never wants anything; she's very satisfied with what she has.
Now that I knew all that cash was in her room, I decided to put it in the bank (which is conveniently located on one side of the post office. Remember what's on the other side of the p.o.? My fave thrift store! So, of course I had to stop in! Also, around the corner is a small consignment store that I noticed a few weeks back (been there almost a year, I found out). So . . . here's what I brought home:
From the consignment shop I got six matching strands of tree beads for $2.50. I've never had matching beads - don't know why but just a bunch of various ones.
Also this cute little dish for $.75. It's very thin, might be porcelain. Not sure what it's for, it's 6" x 2.75" (15cm x 7cm).
These are from the thrift shop:
Another pretty cup for the purple bath. Look at the cute flower inside of it!
A few books for me and Pre-Teen (plus some Garfield books) -
Some votive holders and this cute jar -
Hey, look! My Calibrachoa is blooming! A nice sight on a snowy day. I had them in a hanging basket and at end of season just dumped the shell into a bowl.
