Once again it will be a thrifty Christmas. My car has decided with 84,000 miles on it it needs some parts (thankfully my husband is very mechanically inclined and can do the work). Having almost no Christmas budget is okay--it just makes things more interesting. It means my sewing machine will be running overtime to make all the presents I need to make. I better step it up...the big day will be here in no time!
When most people feel the Christmas spirit in the stores I get the most excited at my favorite store...Goodwill. You have the chance at finding some vintage Santa or Christmas tree--at the regular stores you pretty much know what you are going to get :)
Thought I would share some of my recent finds...
I thought this little guy was so cute for $2.99. The kids told me of course I do because they swear I already have him. No worries--he will enjoy being a twin. I couldn't resist that lace shirt he is wearing!
I almost didn't open the box for this guy--but was so glad I did! He is brand new pink perfection! He was $4.99 and I think he is precious. I used to do a pink Christmas--have gotten away from that the last few years--but this year I am bringing back the pink. (at least a little anyway).
I always love to check out the fabric section at Goodwill and found these 2 half yard pieces for $2.99 for the pair.
They are so me. (please excuse the wrinkles) I think the purple one will become of the fabrics when making a chair cover for my purple dining chair.
This next item as soon as I saw it I knew it had to be mine. Janae even said if I didn't buy it I would have "didn't buy it regret". That is what Janae and I call it when we don't buy something in our attempt not to be hoarders and then we talk about it for months later.."I wish I would have gotten that.."
This was already perfect for my house--didn't have to paint it or anything.
I thought I would share a picture (or two) of how beautiful the pink Santa pillow I made (last post) looks on Janae's bed. I was tickled at how perfect it looks.
Thanks for visiting!
