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?

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.

Spring is just around the corner. For many people it means its time to do some spring cleaning. Get into your closets and start pulling out stuff you haven't touched since you've moved in! Its also the perfect time to get your windows, pantries and basement cleaned. Sounds like fun doesn't it?
When I think of spring, I think of bright and pastel colors. This past weekend I made a bunch of washcloths in some amazing colors that get me excited for spring. These washcloths can also be used as dishcloths so you can be eco friendly while you do your spring cleaning!
Feel free to check out my Etsy shop if you are interested in looking at my other washcloth.
