The last few days have been spent running around frantically trying to get my shopping done. I think I finally found everything I was looking for so now, on with the wrapping. Wrapping presents is not something I like to do. I usually wait to the last minute and throw things together not really caring how pretty the packages look. My kids don't care what the package looks like, just what's inside it.
I did manage a quick trip to the thrift stores on Tuesday. I didn't realize that Tuesday is .99 day at Value Village. That means anything with the special color of the week is just .99. I really didn't find anything fabulous, but as I was waiting in line, I noticed the lady in front of me had a really cute old pink bowl. I told her what a great find it was and she turned and handed to me and said, "I don't really need this, do you want it?" Well, yeah! It was marked on the bottom $49.99 but since it had a yellow tag and it was Tuesday, it was only .99! What a deal.
Here's a picture. I couldn't stop thanking that nice lady. Oh, and it says Redwing on the bottom of the bowl too. I haven't done any research on it yet, been too busy with other things. But wow, what luck!
Here is another little thing I got at VV. All of their Christmas items are only $1.00 so I picked up this little fabric tree. It didn't come with the vintage rhinestone buttons, those were courtesy of me. Pretty cute I think.
I also got a few of these cuties. I think they will be great for holding goodies to give to friends and neighbors. Wish I got more. They had a ton and they were only .49 each.
These tip trays were also found at VV. There are five of them, all the same. I have never seen any like this before.
This little wire chair came from Goodwill.
And while I'm still in the Christmas spirit, I thought I would share one of my favorite Christmas pictures with you. I just love this one. I bet lots of you have pictures that look very similar. That's me front and center. I'm about 2 1/2 years old. The kid with the drippy nose in the red and white pj's is my little brother, Devin and to the left is the lower half of my big brother Mike sporting his new cowboy belt and holster. Gotta love those footy pajamas.
I've been invited to attend the lunch lady Christmas party today. I feel a little weird going, as I am not a regular full time lunch lady, but my good friend Debbie says it doesn't matter and that I have to go. It's being held at a yummy thai restaurant so I know the food will be good.
I really need to get my rear over to Monticello. It has been awhile since I have gone to fluff up the booth and drop off stuff. I do have some things I need to take over so I will probably do that tomorrow. But before that, I am having blind coffee date with a fellow blogger. I will tell you more about that tomorrow. Until then, have a great day!
