I took a side trip over to my favorite Salvation Army Family Store...
...and came home with a haul! I spent over $20, which almost never happens. But I got some good stuff.
The best thing was this very old plastic sewing box, full of embroidery thread, many on wooden spools.
At 15 cents original price, I figure they are maybe as old as I am...
I also found a basket exactly like the one I have full of pine cones at my front door - my mother admired it last time she visited, so this one goes to her. I also found 6 glass ornaments in mint condition,
two novels, some Christmas mugs,
a couple of cozy big shirts for me to wear with jeans,
and a dress shirt and sweater vest for Hubby.
The ornaments I propped in wine glasses and used fabric paint to make monogrammed ornaments.
I added some ribbon I already had.
A fun way to spend some pre-Christmas down time!
