DAY 44, SUNDAY NO PICS
DAY 45, MONDAY    ALWAYS WATER MY 'TRANSPLANTS' FROM THE YARD ON MONDAYS.  THEY LOOKED LONELY SO I ADDED MY WHITE ANGEL WITH HIS GOLDEN SASH HOLDING THE LITTLE RABBIT.  HE WAS A THRIFT FIND.  THE LITTLE PIG-TAILED TODDLER WAS ALSO A FIND.
YOU CAN'T SEE HER LITTLE WINGS IN THIS PICTURE BUT SHE DOES HAVE TWO LITTLE DAINTY ONES ON HER BACK. (I STILL NEED TO CHECK THIS ONE ON LINE...SHE HAS MARKINGS, AND I BELIEVE SHE MAY HAVE BEEN MADE IN THE 40'S)
THEY ARE NOW ENJOYING SITTING WITH THE PLANTS.  THIS MAKES THE 4TH TIME MY HIBISCUS HAS BLOOMED SINCE I BROUGHT IT IN FROM THE COLD..THEY'RE SURELY LIKING THE SUN COMING IN FROM THE WEST

DAY 46, TUESDAY
NOT MY NORMAL DAY FOR THRIFTING BUT I FOUND MYSELF ON THAT SIDE OF TOWN AND IT WAS TOO HARD TO RESIST.  
THE SHOES WERE TOO WELL PRICED TO PASS UP, ONE PAIR ITALIAN LEATHER THE OTHER PAIR ETIENNE AIGNER'S.  
I ALSO FOUND BLOUSES, ENOUGH TO HAVE TO DO ANOTHER LOAD OF LAUNDRY WHEN I GOT HOME...IT WAS WORTH IT...I GOT EACH OF THEM FOR $2

DAY 47, WEDNESDAY
STARTED CROCHETING A NEW SHAWL FROM MY 'REMNANTS' BAG.     FINISHED IT ON SATURDAY...JUST A FEW ENDS TO TUCK HERE AND THERE.  IT WAS QUICK USING DOUBLE STRANDS OF YARN AND A SIZE 'Q' NEEDLE.


DAY 48, THURSDAY

DAY 49, FRIDAY NO PICS

Hey Mom, thanks for dropping in and for your nice comment on my FB Friday post. :)

I love those fairy gardens. Will yours end being one of those? For sure you have two doeses of green thumb of which one was supposed to be mine.

What an interesting post! From your beautiful hibiscus to thrift store finds. And I loved seeing your shawl. It looks so soft. Have you heard of prayer shawls? Basically you just make a shawl for someone and as you crochet you pray for them. I made one and it was a humbling experience.

sara said...

I so don't have a green thumb!!! My mom and my Aunt did not pass that down to me!!!

I wish I lived closer so that I could go thrifting with you!!!!

Mocha with Linda said...

Great pics. You are so talented in ways that are so foreign to me!

rita said...

You are the Queen of Thrifters (I did not say drifters ;) I always love your finds. What an eye for classy bargains!
And I love your afghan!
Whatever you give away would be very special.

I wish I could find good deals in thrift stores!! I really need to finish my sons blanket as well..

RaD said...

This is really starting to crack me up. The moon total on this week's 365 is now up to 6 (including me). I guess we all really liked looking at it this week and thought we needed a picture. :)

Loved the pictures. I am so jealous over the knitted/crocheted stuff. I do neither. I would love to meet you next time you are in Roanoke. Maybe the coffee shop will be opened by then....but don't hold your breath. My mom pronounces it Elix too. I say it the way it is supposed to be said. Al ex. I get made fun of for it too.

Mimi said...

I can't grow anything green!

Blessings,

The Bug said...

Love your plants! Did you take a picture of your thrift store finds?

Kim said...

Thrifting is one of the things I'm looking forward to on furlough!

I have a plant I started from a cutting two years ago and it had never bloomed but it's getting ready to -- soooo excited! I just hope it doesn't happen while we're in Uruguay for our annual missionary conference.

Gorgeous prayer shawl! I keep seeing your work and that of BS&K and makes me wish I enjoyed knitting and/or crocheting :)

Almost everyone has a moon photo this week except me.

Trust you have another great week!

LuAnn said...

Love the shawl - I just started a crochet project my first one too. I am a knitter but am really enjoying this.

Thrift store shopping...I wish I was better at that. And I wish I had a green thumb to grow things too...not so much! Beautiful shawl...love the colors.

Amy said...

What beautiful colors in the shawl!! I also love outdoors shots they sometimes really capture what the day feels like.

Lori @ The Davidson Den said...

Beautiful plants!! I sure wish someone would teach me how to care for plants without killing them...

Guess I missed your giveaway (I'm behind). :) But I'm having one right NOW!! Through tomorrow night!
