It's Hot In Here

It's amazing how no matter what the season, people always complain about the weather. I'm one of them! I am always cold and the winters in Ohio are sometimes challenging. The summers can even be worse! Yesterday was the first time we were at 100 degrees since 1999!

Of course our air conditioner went out Wednesday night! Our house was our own personal sauna. It went from bad to worse last night. I found it interesting that our house was so hot our thermostat refused to register the temperature!

We were saved by our late night purchase of fans from Walmart. Although I'm not sure if blowing hot air around is what I would call relief.

This morning after my shower I rushed out my house to head into work where it's alway cold. I came to the conclusion I'd rather be cold than hot.

Relief will come this afternoon when the AC guy comes between 2p & 5p! I pray that you're staying cool this weekend.

Thrift Store Wednesday

The last Wednesday of every month is 50% off at all Ohio Thrift stores. As if you needed  another reason to go shopping to find lovely hidden treasures!

I love going to see what goodies I can find. I find myself a little heartbroken when I run across a hand crocheted item. How could someone have such disregard for something that was made especially for them. When I can I purchase those forgotten crochet beauties and recycle their yarn.

My trip this time was to look for baskets. I will be attending a craft show in the next month and thought presenting my items in baskets would make for a good look. I was thrilled to find two baskets that met my needs. Although they weren't part of the 50% off sale I did get them at the low, low price of $0.99 each. Who could argue with that!

So now I have two pretty little baskets to store some of my inventory in and use during craft show. I am very excited to get more.

What goodies have you gotten from the thrift store lately? Or am I the only one who love thrifting?

Self Striping Yarn

Saw this patriotic yarn and just had to have it. I didn't know what self striping yarn was. I am very thrilled with the way it looks. I will spend the evening making washcloths. Have you made anything using self striping yarn? Would love to see your projects.
