Quiet Again

My Mom and Ben left earlier today so the house is very quiet again. It was nice having them here for the holiday.

My Mom and I shop at only the fanciest stores. Black Friday we went to the Goodwill, yesterday we went to the Dollar Store.


Don't you love these angels? My Mom and I each bought a set, the four in the back are playing instruments, and the one in the center is holding a heart. I haven't decided if I'm going to keep them, or give them as a gift...they look really nice on my buffet.

If you need large gift bags, the Dollar Store is the place to go, I bought one that was 28x20x8 - huge! Perfect for a quilt, a large toy, or to fool someone, hide a gift card in.

I'm still working on making Christmas gifts, got one done yesterday and should finish another tomorrow. Making progress, but still have a ways to go. Boy, am I going to have a lot of pictures to share after Christmas is over.

I LOVE the kind of stores where you shop....they are actually my favorites!!! REALLY, they are. We have 7 thrift shops within a reasonable drive from my house and I love browsing around to see what treasures I can find. Trouble is....I don't have enough room for all the things I'd like to buy...and we have very little storage area in this house...so it's not like I can buy them and rotate things for display.

The Dollar Store has beautiful gift bags and you can't go wrong at the price for sure! I enjoy Thrift Shop finds myself.
