The days since have been busy ones with two guests from Montana, including a grandson who now looks like Harry Potter. The live-in grandson lost his first tooth at a Royals baseball game and arrived home so exhausted he asked the tooth fairy to wait a night.
While my daughter has entertained these guests, we've had two highly successful thrifting outings. On Friday, I found the bowling shoes I've been looking for for two years and...a cashmere sweater by Eileen Fisher in prime condition! On Sunday, we visited the newly opened Goodwill Outlet and pawed through a few bins. I've read about such places on other blogs and was very afraid that the place would be smelly and the bins full of items no one else wanted. Instead, we were greeted with the fragrance of clean laundry as we came through the door. After an hour of digging, we weighed our cart. DH walked out with an artist's valise and I had 6 new-to-me items, all for $4! It's quite a jaunt to visit this place, but I am certain we'll return.
In addition, I've finally hemmed the skirt I queried my readers about weeks ago and made a second draw string skirt from previously thrfted pieces.
