Hey Everyone!!! I hope you didn't think I forgot about you all..my good pal Sarah stole me away for shopping today..thought we were going on friday..(we still are) but we did some running around today...and run we did..got some fun stuff to share....but first I wanted to show you what I finished up last night..I made a cute cat penny rug of sorts..more of a folkart rug I guess..This is based off a chestnut junction design..;) This will be going up on my etsy site as soon as I get done posting here.;)
We hit alot of stores today..and my favorite thing today is my new square cutter..so now I can make square penny rugs..I can't wait..on friday I am getting the oblong one..;) got to use my 40% discount coupon..gotta love those coupons..;)
you get 7 different sizes..i can't wait to get some wool cut and get started..
we hit value village today and I also picked up 3 wool sweaters to felt so I can use those for penny rugs..the one above is a nice warm mustard gold and is my favorite..;)
I got this really neat wooden skillet..and I love it..not sure why..think I am going to sand it down and paint something on it..not sure...what do you think?
I also got a cute white/blue enamelware dish..it will go in one of Carols wooden shelves..:)
I picked up some heart pans...Sarah and I are splitting this..she is getting one big pan and 2 little ones..guess I should make some pantry cakes..but definitely a cake for valentines for sure..gotta do something right..we just don't do any of the holidays..never really have..thanksgiving and christmas and easter are the only three we really go all out for..;)
I picked up this little piggy for my friend Kimmy whom I haven't seen since october....if you are reading this Kimmy we need to get together...cause I miss you.;)_
don't you love these utensils..will have to use these for the 4th of july..hopefully we will have a get together and we can use these for a barbeque..love the red and the stars..and I can also use them when I have my little parties too.;)
I love this sign..its a little more country then I like but it will go on the front porch and will serve its purpose..now if I can only get the furry babies to do this..I'd be in business.;)
last but not least they had a bag of this glorious fiberfill at the thrift store..it was $4.00..I purchased the big boxes on amazon and I have never used this stuff before...only the joanns stuff and I will tell you..I love this stuff..everyone had been talking about..and I'm like its just stuffing..oh it is so different then regular stuffing..it packs really well..love it!!! if you haven't tried it you must..;) we hit a bakery outlet store today and got some great deals on bread etc..and we hit grocery outlet as well..again some great deals..Value Village was fun..I love searching for stuff to redo or get a great bargain..:) Okay I have made you wait long enough..are you ready for your 2 words today? and no one better shout out Bingo today..or you are in trouble.;)
Whiskers on kittens
