Thrifty Finds...

Ha, I had some extra time today between volunteering at Little Bit and picking up Miss M. and a friend from school. I decided to go to Value Village, because after all, I hadn't been there yet this week!  [wink]

Look what I found!
They are Hanna Andersson clogs and they will go great with whatever it is I will be making out of that fabric!  And, drumroll please,  they look like they have never been worn before and they only cost me $8!!!   {smile}

When I showed them to Miss M. I received some mayor eye-rolling. Of course, what did I expect?

I also bought a lacy curtain!
Right now I've got it hanging in the front room, on the upper part of the window. This is where we don't spend a lot of time. I will probably get mayor eye-rolling on that one too and I must admit, I am not completely convinced yet either, but I will give it some time...

What a great start to the weekend!
I'm going to celebrate with a glass of wine and then I will be cooking dinner with a recipe from Photo-Copy. Chicken in Peanut/ Yoghurt Sauce with Rice. Sounds pretty good right?


  1. you seem to score the best shoes! do you have small feet? not being nosey, just wondering if they don't get sold because of the size...

  2. Oh my goodness, I am pink with envy! So happy for you though, what an amazing treasure! Good thing you decided to go. You will have to show photos of what you make and wearing those shoes!

  3. Hellooo
    WOW! Love your Hasbeens!
