Another Thrift Store Adventure

It may be shallow on my part but there is nothing like a shopping spree when you are having a bad day! Tuesday was one of those days where I had a million things to do and nothing was going right so I took myself off to the Salvation Army thrift store for a spree! I was very pleased with my first selection which was this Jim Shore Heartwood Creek collectable figure. It is the extra large rooster and a $4 it was a great bargain. I love these quilty figurines - I have the nativity set already. This guy is over 20" tall and I will enjoy having him no end.


Then I found this wonderful temari ball for $1! I love temari balls and they are on my list of things to do at some point. Maybe having this one around will inspire me to get around to it.
This second picture is of the ball hanging from the little light fixture in the trailer just to give you an idea of the size. It is huge!
So, yes, I felt better after spending some money even if it was only $5! Like I tell dh when I bring all these goodies home: It could have been worse - I could be doing this shopping at the mall instead of the thrift store!
