One Happy Customer and some Thrift Store Shopping

I like happy customers and I think Chase was pleased with his new sign, for his cowboy themed room. He is a handsome customer isn't he?

I went to town today so I did a little thrift store shopping...

I got this carved unfinished pineapple for 99 cents

and this red and white wash pan 3$ old rolling pin with red handles $1.99

Look at my old blue suitcase 3$, I got this strip light to go near my sewing machine out in the shop...I think it was 1.99 and this big Fall colors tablecloth .....guess what I am going to do with it!

This pumpkin candle...I want to grunge it up and put one of those little flicker candles in it. I also got the old cutting board 99 cent.

I had to run in Michaels to get some stitching thread and while I was standing in line I saw this little abc stamps in the dollar bin so I grabbed 3 fonts to maybe stamp some of my tags. I had to get a ink pad to.

My niece Stephanie wants some trow pillows for her bed (she likes a little funky!) Hey I can make funky to! Look at this great material I got for her.
Tomorrow we have to do some back to school shopping...I can't believe it is almost time to go back already!


  1. Great finds... I like the basin and rolling pin the most.

    I have some of those stamps too.

    Those will make some funky pillows.
