Thrifting and a New Blogger

Kaiya went grocery shopping with me today....err, make that yesterday, yikes! I need to go to bed. Anyway, we got in some much needed Mommy/eldest daughter time. We had lunch, then, before we went to the grocery store, we decided to do a little thrifting at the Salvation Army. It's her favorite place to shop. It's the only place she can pick pretty much whatever she wants. First she'll hit the 10 cent bin (this is where she likes to pick out presents for little sissy if she's not with us) then she's on to the books. A child of my own heart she is quite the book worm and she really stocks up here. Then she's off in search of a new baby doll and I try to steer her towards the ones with hair and clothes. Oh well, they're almost all .25-.50. We found a sweet red rain coat for her that I am dying of envy over. But for me I found this teapot. I am in love with it's shape. It didn't have it's original lid and the one on it was an ill fit. So, I just took it of and for now it's resting spot for my double pointed needles. Form and function! Though, I may later use it as a flower pot.
Also, I just discovered my friend and show buddy, Patti, has just started blogging. Her shop is Shine Your Hiney Soap, and her soaps are heavenly! My fav is Sugar Cookie. Mmmmm..... She has promised me she will make me more even after winter. (And I will hold you to it!)

Mother/Eldest daughter time. What's that?

Hooray for found objects! I love using a random object for something other than its original purpose -- like glass Coke bottles as flower vases. Excellent!

What a great use for this sweet teapot!!
Found your blog thru a comment on a OWOH post . . .
I'm knitting little 'sleeves' for my new broom handle (or 'grips') as it is a BEAUTIFUL handmade broom, with natural hickory handle! (check it out on Vestellas Vale :) & have a bunch of my mom's old needles that are in a shoebox - what a great idea!
I found a sweet pressed aluminum dustpan today at an antique store in town that's closing its doors - had been drooling over wood ones on e-bay - & will need to make a 'pocket' for this one (Prob for table crumbs, but big enough for 'floor' use :) as it doesn't have a hole . . .

Love your blog :)
