Patrick got this file organizer, which is going to be a huge help at his desk.
He found it and paid for it while I was looking around so I don't know how much it was.
This ball jar (sorry, I had already put it in some water when I remembered to take a pic lol) was $2.00. It's really big.
I can't decide if this is a tablecloth or a child's bed dust ruffle. The sides with the blue stars or flowers or snowflakes (?) feel like curtain sheers. I don't know what I'll do with them but the middle is a nice big piece of cotton that almost feels like the flour sack towels I just bought. It was $2.00.
$1.00 for the top smaller one. $2.00 each for the other two.
They're in really good condition.
$1.00 It's a vintage makeup bib.
A little stack of wood for painting. .25cents.
.25 c per can. They're basically full.
$1.00 polyfil. I was desperately needing some and was thrilled to find this. Then yesterday, my son brought my sewing machine back. He had borrowed it to make his girlfriend a birthday gift. When he returned the machine, he brought me another full bag of polyfil. So now I have two and can go make some stuff. :)
But this is the best thing of all. Friday we were driving back from the store and I saw this table sitting by the dumpster at the apartments across the street from us. I told Patrick that I didn't want to get it. I didn't know where I'd put it, etc, etc. I couldn't sleep Friday night and I kept thinking about that table. Of course, now I wanted it. As soon as morning came, I ran across the street hoping it would be there and it was! I picked it up. It's heavy! But I didn't care. I carried that puppy home and it's going to get a nice sanding and painting. My favorite price: Free!
And, an obligatory, kitty cuteness shot. I had just emptied this basket of yarns (I never use) from my sewing space. I brought it upstairs and put a doily in it and hadn't decided what else I would put in it yet. He just barely fits. So cute.
