Another Good Shopping Day

Yes, ANOTHER good shopping many good days of late that I need to stay away from our little thrift store. 
One day last week they had all clothing (except dresses and coats) for $1. I don't need anything but was looking for my sister, hubby, and step-son.  I found a nice Christmas sweatshirt/jacket and a top for my sister. I picked up a leather skirt for myself....(I need to loose about 3# tho) and a fleece pullover for SS. For our grandson I found a pair of name brand jogging pants (he doesn't like jeans) and a camo zip up hoodie. 

Today I wasn't planning to go out but a friend had some plants for I had to stop at the thrift store (my car can not drive past it, it automatically pulls in). I picked up a beach towel, navy t-shirt for myself (not in the pic), authentic Starbucks mug for my granddaughter, pretty letter holder, new Dr Suess hat, 3 small chip board scrapbooks for the grands, a really cool tie for my grandson (the loop is there and you zip it to the correct size - I have never seen this style before), some giant paper clips for some craft project, pair of ankle socks, and an aluminum double sided shot jigger. You didn't know I was such a sophisticated drinker, did ya?
Yes, all of that for.....
Now do you understand why it is my favorite thrift store?

Actually I scooped up the jigger because I knew it would be perfect for an air plant. I didn't have one but when I showed to my friend she thought it would be a great home too, so she gave me one of her babies. Thanks Carolee! I think he's going to love it here.

We have plans this weekend!
Kevin hasn't been hired but he is planning to take the job he was offered at the woodworking place....I don't know the name of it.

I did some weeding the past 2 days....all I can say is I am not as young as I used to be. When I am down on my knees I have a hard time trying to figure out how to get far I have managed tho. ***SMILE***

As I've been typing I've been enjoying the smell of my Lilies of the wonderful to be able to enjoy them on my table.

Have a great weekend!!!!
