You might remember me always shopping when I lived in NY--
here is seems I only shop for things I need--
and never get to just shop for something fun--
but the other day when DD came to get me for the monthly shopping trip
to Wal mart--and we first made a stop at a Good will store--
I needed something with long sleeves for the chilly days on the dock--
and here is what walked out with me--
My treasures are a large soup bowl, a glass pie dish, a cute mug, a metal pail and a framed photo of a straw hat--
I did not have a pie dish yet--mine had broken in the shipment--
and the cup is one of those just because purchases --cause it goes with the new bowl!!
and I still love straw hats--though--again I did not bring any with me--
will have to start over again!!
and the pail will be a yarn project holder for me--right now I have already put it to good use--
holding the pair of socks that I am knitting for a friend for Christmas--
and I did find some new shirts--the light purple one is a sweater--all cotton--with 3/4 length sleeves, as is the new shirt--
and the red t-shirt is also 3/4 length sleeves (on me they come nearly to my wrist!!)
and a new t-shirt--these 2 items where new--and have never been worn--
the total for all these items was $13--
now I could of not gotten but one shirt in Walmart for that price--
so I think I did good!!!

and I got October's counted cross stitch done --
we have just 2 months left on this one--
and I can't believe that I have actually pretty much kept up with them!!

have a great fun filled day--
love and laughter, di


  1. I miss the days when I used to drive an enormous Bronco, back in the days before the letters SUV became ubiquitous. My ride was easy to find.

  2. Angels In the Attic is a good thrift store. It is on Wickham in Suntree and run by the church it sits off to the side from. Not big but they get some quality items donated at times.

  3. Looks like you had fun shopping. I love thrift stores. I go shop at thrift stores often. Most of my clothes is from there. I don't feel guilty shopping there cause its so cheap. And I only buy things I will use or wear.

  4. You did good, indeed! Thrift stores can be a lot of fun to rummage through. I have to be in just the right frame of mind, then watch out!

  5. lovely cross's fun to just wander and shop........I don't do it much either...........

  6. You got some really great bargains Di! I haven't been on a shopping trip like that for so long... well, now I am packing and getting rid of stuff so I need to stay away from the shops! xx

  7. You found lots of treasures! I haven't been treasure hunting in awhile, but it used to be a favorite pastime. You and I would definitely have fun shopping together.


I love visitor's---and I really love to read your comments--sooo don't forget to leave me one!!!!:-)
