# In ThE BLUE #

I am the official Thrift Store Queen, not really, I've just been lucking up on some great finds, at some great prices.  I'm sure it will come to an end soon!!  Then I will not be able to find anything.  What am I going to do with all of this stuff any way?

 All of this for $6.42.

## MoRe ThIrFt StOrE FiNdS ##

and again More Thrift Store Finds...
This doll house was only $3.50
This is the back
This is opened up, it has some crayon marks on in, but I'll be fixing this little doll house up, it's so sweet.  I love the handles to carry it with.
Now, from this picture down I paid $2.85!!  The compote is pretty big, I can just see this filled with Easter eggs!
Love the doilies, they are the perfect size for on top of a small box or a card..

Small baggie with flowers, the white one are so pretty.

and some Christmas towels for next year.

Now I need to find some time to work with the things I have gotten, I just keep bringing stuff home and not doing anything with them, maybe I need to get a booth...
Wishing everyone a Great Week!! :) -Kim

* ThRiFt StOrE FiNdS *

Thrift Store Finds, yet again I went into my little home town store and found these little treasures, not a lot, but some things to craft with and useful items and the best part...$2.14!
Love these small spools, they look like wooden bobbins, not sure what they are...they are just cute to me.
Maybe I'll make some dolls with these spools.
I also have the curly hair to make the dolls!

Love the basket with the handles, it's a different shape.. great for an Easter basket.

Cute frames with glass, not plastic, I need to clean these up a bit.

Velour Butterfly, Shower curtain hooks and the gems make think of Easter!

Speaking of Easter, I need to get in on some swaps.  I had so much fun with the Valentine Swaps. If anyone knows of any, please let me know!  Have a great day!

Blogging Before Work

Just wanted to share with you guys this card I made.
It's pretty simple, but I love the verse, it is one of my favorites.
I think I will give this to my parents for Valentines Day.

Gotta get ready for work.  Wishing everyone a great day :)

# Duct Tape Wallet #

My 14- year old son's Duct Tape Wallet that he made.

He watched how to make this on YouTube, he never does anything crafty.
I think it turned  out great for his first project.

Wishing everyone a Happy Week-end!

* Thrift Store Vintage Tablecloths *

I went into my small, local thrift store today and I found these tablecloths for $1.00 each, and when I checked out they were having a half price sell, only 50 cents each.  What a great deal, or would that be a steal?

 Red Roses is my favorite one.

 I'm not real sure if this is vintage, but I like the color and 
the lace details on the napkins.

 Love the butterflies.

This one is bright and cheerful!

Have a great day!!
