How I Spent $2 Today

I dropped off a donation at my local thrift store today, and of course had to shop a bit before leaving. There is always something that catches my eye. This cute little jar is only about 3" tall. The sparklies are buttons. And more vintage buttons still on the cards. Original prices ranged from 15 to 70 cents.

Never know when you might need a nice big tapestry needle or an embroidery needle with a BIG eye.

I found a few kitchen goodies to use in an upcoming project. I've never seen a plain rectangle cookie cutter before (I probably lead a sheltered life).

A last but certainly not least, a Scrabble game complete with the board, wooden tile racks and all the tiles, plus a full box of wooden dominoes that look as though they have never been used.

Woo-hoo, what terrific finds for a mere TWO BUCKS for all of it! Can you believe it? I am going to have some fun with this stuff!
