The tough go thrifting!
Especially when one volunteers to spend four full days painting the complete interior of her brother's rental house (including ceilings!).
In order to reward myself for a job well done and to soothe my aching brain and joints, a thrift store stop was called for! I spent four days driving past it and on the fifth day at 10 am, I pulled into the parking lot.
I found some lovely paper lanterns and hung them on the clothesline this morning with high hopes they fade beautifully.
I couldn't pass up the wire birdhouse for $2. Seems I've started a collection without intending to.
The weather has shifted from dark and chilly to sunny and warm.
You'll be able to find me today lounging outside with a large glass of iced tea and a crochet project---waiting ever so patiently for my lanterns to fade and keeping the birds from using them as targets.
