the jackpot

Oh have I hit the jackpot!  no, not that kind of jackpot ~  my pockets are definitely not fatter!!  

I went to the Goodwill this morning and found an awesome $10.00  treasure box...
                    I'll show y'all in a minute. 

I've been a little behind with my favorite blog reading and now I am all caught up with my wonderful friends.   First I had to work all week.  Yes, friends.. 5 days in a row.   ( Thanks a lot  Mary, sure hope you had a nice time at the beach! :  )   Hey Wait.  I guess my pockets are a little fatter.   Nah.. I spent it all on glitter!

  Second, my computer wouldn't load pages! ERRRR!  I was going crazy trying to access the blogs.  Even my Big Brother live feeds wouldn't work.   I was so bored that I knitted a scarf.  Seriously!   ok...  half of a scarf. 
  This morning,  I called my network provider and the problem is fixed!   now,  I am all kinds of hooked up!    

I'm happy to see you all and see that everyone is doing well.

ok,  off to the Goodwill...  

I woke up with an idea and was on a mission for a pair of small boots.    Selfie and I headed off to the goodwill early this morning and found some that were super cheap ~  and I'll show you my intentions soon. 

I also found this little owl for .50
with some paint, glue and glitter
 I will put this cutie to good use!!!

More Enamelware for a total of $2.50

And a 10.00 box of Pfaltzgraff Folk Art dishes
Holy Shmoly!
Of course I don't need any more dishes
I have always loved these!

I hope you all have a splendid weekend.
Time to Glitter!!!

I have always loved that pattern, too. Looks like a great day thrifting...and glad your computer troubles are behind you--that is always so frustrating.
Enjoy the weekend!

Thanks for stopping by and becoming a follower. Total score on the Pfaltzgraff!
I actually do okay with all the white in the family room. Three guys, tons of nieces, nephews and greats, but none of it is expensive and it is all washable.
