Advice from the Pooh!

Sounds like good advice and I did make a little
list of things to look out for.

Looks like by the smile on his face,
Pooh thinks I did pretty good.
Two more containers for my cactus container garden...
the brass fondue pot and the silver soup terrine.

Angel pedestal will be great for a cake platter.
And the two greenish blue cups will be nice
the next time Terry comes to visit.
(Thought of you, girl friend, when I saw these ;-)

Doll heads, they were on the list but I couldn't remember
if my project idea called for hair or no hair.
Got both, one blue eyed and the other brown.

O.K. this next picture you're probably thinking...
looks like a pile trash! But this is where
T h I R f T y T h U r S d A Y
really kicks in...

So... as I'm leaving the thrift store I head around back
to check out a FREE chair which just happened to
be right next to the dumpster.

No you didn't!

Did you?

You bet I did!!!

His & hers ice skates, upholstery material--new,
silk scarfs, pair of good leather gloves,
and a bit more odds and ends.

Dixie, I could hear these calling your name.
At least that one in the middle--Am I right?

It took all I could to keep from climbing up into that
thing and digging all the way to the bottom.
I may go back after dark. Anybody want to
come hold the flash light?

Beverly at Glory B's asked about you today... she's got new stuff!

My sister-in-law left me in a dumpster one time when the carpet guys drove up to dump some more in. We laugh all the time about some of our antics.

What was I doing in there you might ask? Well I decided to do a patch work carpet and was scrounging for pieces. That's the only carpet we had for a long time. I taped the padding together then glued the pieces down. In daughter's room I fashioned a house with flowers and in the boy's room they had a red wagon in the middle.

I still love patchwork anything but the old carpet gave way to hard wood floors and colorful rugs.

Keep on finding all those great items, and thanks for bringing back a fun memory.
