Things I Didn’t Buy 74


I really liked this old sci-fi book—two books in one. Each side of the book was a cover for a different story. I just love the art on these covers. The first side: The Light of Lilith.


The second side: The Sun Saboteurs.


Next was the book: The Joy of Nothing.


It’s really just an empty notebook.


Really nice design on this Good Housekeeping Cook Book.


I liked this Building America book cover.


This home appliance book cover is so simple and bold.

Things I Didn’t Buy 73


I liked this painted picture that has a Russian feel to it. I love the colors, design and how intricate it is.



These two 1970s 3D pictures are pretty awesome.



And I liked this cute mirror. 


Finally, the Montgomery Ward scale was cool.

Estate Sale Fabric

I got a whole bunch of fabric at an estate sale. Since I got most of it for my mom, I won’t disclose the amount, but it was much cheaper than buying new. I got 23 different fabrics for my mom.




And I kept four fabrics for myself.

Thrifted for $7



I got these Corelle dishes—5 bowls, 8 small plates, 5 medium plates and 6 large plates for $5. Very 1970s design.


I also got this cool spatula and salt and pepper shakers for $1.


And I got four cds for $1. Disney’s Beauty and the Beast soundtrack and The Bravery were two cds I knew I would like, so I was quite happy to buy both of them.

I was disappointed in the Movie Hits cd. I got it mainly because of “Everything I Do, I Do it for You,” because I remember liking that song. But when I listened to it again, I didn’t like it as much.

This is My Song set of cds had three cds in it (and missing the one disc) that were older songs—I think all before 1970. There were a lot of songs I didn’t know, but some I did know and like. So there were some happy surprises in there.

Embroidery Floss


I found a whole bunch of embroidery floss at an estate sale. It was something I was sort of on the lookout for since I made my first (and so far only) cross stitching project. I would like to do more cross stitching…I just haven’t gotten to it. I bought two smaller cases with some blues and silkier floss for myself for $3.50.

And I got six large cases of embroidery floss for $5 each—so $30 total. But the plan is to split this with two friends, so it’ll only cost $10 a piece. I thought it was a pretty good deal (and so beautifully organized).
