here, my daughter was needing some new clothes. Since I don't have the money to just head to the nearest mall and buy all new stuff, we decided to go "thrifting". Sometimes, I think this is more fun because you never know what you will find. Of course, there are times when you don't find anything and you wish you had the money to just head to the nearest Macy's or Dillard's or wherever your heart desires. This time though, I did find quite a bit and didn't break the bank doing it. I also found a couple of odds and ends to just have or to resell. I think we counted 26 items that I purchased and I don't remember the grand total. It was around $60 something. I averaged less than $3.00 an item. I got a lot and didn't feel guilty doing it!
12 tops for daughter
2 pairs of shoes for daughter
dress and shoes for a little niece
2 books for kids
corkboard squares (new package at thrift store price)
decorative metal key
sweater vest for me
Somehow I am missing an item because I know we counted 26. Anyway, I was pleased with my selections.
On Sat. we spent the day getting ready for a JBF sale. In case you all don't know, it is a children's consignment sale. I participate twice a year. I made several things this time. Here is a little of what I made.
here. If they don't sell at JBF, they will be up for sale either through this blog or at the Etsy store that I hope to open this summer.
So that is some of what kept me busy this past weekend. My daughter also had a piano recital on Sunday. Drop off for JBF was on Monday and was an hour drive from home. Tuesday I kind of took it slow. :) I discovered this weekend what it was like to have a family of seven and what it was like to have teenagers. Boy I'm tired just thinking about it all again. So I say that to say, "Hats off to you mothers of large families!"
So until next time...
Have a blessed day,
