First I did mega consignment shopping this weekend. I usually hit my favorite shop once a month and was ever so surprised to pull up to a yard sale in the parking lot as well as deep discounts on the booths inside.
Here's my loot.
The seller didn't know anything about the stitcher. I am such a sucker when thinking of the time and effort the stitcher put into her work. For $2 I couldn't go wrong.
Red, White & Blue basket with two Americana hand towels, $4, Watermelon slices, $1 each, $1 silk flag scarf, and NIB Lenox Snowflake candle jar. This will be a Christmas present for a friend who will be told where I got it and she will be proud of my shopping prowess!
$1 silk scarf went right out to become a bow on my door decoration.
The sampler found a quick home on top of my J. P. Coats and Clark cabinet. I think I will have to wrap that blaring white easel with a piece of grosgrain or bias tape so as to not be jumping out at me!
I bought a can of spray paint for $3.57 and 5 stake style solar lights at $0.97 each.
I took apart the solar stake-style lights and filed down the bases of the lenses.
I used my glue gun to secure the lens in place and hung the lamp!
As always, all photos are clickable for larger filmstrip view. Thanks for stopping by and have a great week full of stitching, family and friends!
