Just 24 hours ago I came upstairs to spend the morning sewing........ What a joke that turned out to be.........

Lem called to make an appointment for Wade Hamilton to get a haircut (sorely needed) and Paula said she could see him at 11:30. I read a few more blogs and then we left to take him Chatham............ She said that she would be done by 1:00 (he is a wiggle worm and is difficult to trim.. at least he has quit being nippy)

While he got his haircut we did the weekly grocery shop................

Doesn't he look so much better now?



I decided to do the rest of the errands alone....... We went home, put away the groceries and I fixed a bit of lunch. It was about 2:00 PM by the time all that was done so I headed out once more.

My first stop was the Saint Joan of Arc Thrift Shop. I was looking for a few things to decorate for Valentines day......


This was my first find..........


Three boxes and all for $2.50


$1.50 gave me this chrystal vase....... I rather liked it and I know it will serve for several holidays. Now to find something to put in it...........


These two containers for the small sum of $1.00 each.........


And two acorns........ Yes, I do know they are not for Valentines day but when I did the fall decorating I was looking for something like these so I snapped them up for the total cost of $3.00 for both.

Then to Staples for some copies, to turn in two empty cartridges (they will send me a coupon for them) and to use the coupon I got for the last ones I dropped off.


This is what I got with my coupon. A container for my hexagons or any other small carry with you project and five small pens to put in such boxes along with a few index cards for notes.


Rite Aid was next. No pictures of the vitamins I purchased but I did use a $5.00 coupon so that paid for half of the vitamins.



The Hope Chest is one of my favorite places. It is a step up from the Thrift Shop and their prices reflect that. They even have furniture and clothing. I sure hope I find a place like this when we move.



This little tea bag holder came home with me .........
As did the red plate in the background of this picture.........



After that I went to the Christmas Tree Shop. That is where you buy things you really don't need for near to nothing......



There I found two tea towels for $1.00 each.....




Four heart shaped quilted placemats for $1.50 each



A few odds and ends to fill in when I decorate.............



$4.99 got me a table runner.........


$3.99 for a wreath........



and a couple of plate holders............




Then a stop at the local deli for meats for next week......

I loved the summer rental sign on this building. In about 4 weeks people will be starting to call for their summer reservations................



I didn't get home again till 4:00.......... So much for a day spent sewing..............
