Slim But Pretty Pickin's


Happy Monday, girls! Are you ready?
I'm trying to be a bit more selective in my Goodwill shopping and it's a good thing because the pickin's have been pretty slim lately! I found these two pretties in the linens bin this week. I also found a mini Christmas tree made out of bells but I won't show you that because we're all thinking Spring! Right? ☺
I let Micah take this pic for me. He's learned all sorts of new things on the camera in the last couple of weeks. It's really great because he turns around and teaches me!
I plan on shaking off the February blues today and I hope I succeed! I can tell my body is CRAVING sunshine! Hang in there, girls! Spring's a comin'!

Those are pretty linens. Are you going to create something out of them or use them as they are? I bet you have an idea for them!!

Holly said...

Hi, Gin! No ideas yet. Just thought they were pretty. I hope to re- do my shelves that seperate the dinng room from the computer room and maybe I will use them there... ♥

Our thrift stores have been slim pickens here too. I'm hoping for spring cleaning time, that people will start bringing in their stuff again. I am looking forward to a warmer week in our neck of the woods. I hope you get some warmer air and sunshine, too! Twyla

Good morning, Twyla!

This is the time of year that our temps go up and down so crazily! Spring teases us and then Winter bullies us back! It is supposed to warm back up later in the week, though. I'm ready for the guys to GO fishing. ☺

Hi, Amy! Good to see you. Hope Michigan has had a thaw! ♥

Hello dear Holly:-)

Like you, I'm having a really hard time getting out of the February blues....SIGHHHHH! lol If I can get through March as well, then I'll be all set! Love the linens you found at the thrift store, so pretty and delicate. I was gone to a couple of ours and as you say, slim pickings right now!! xoxo

Holly, Hello girlie girl. Thanx for the sweet message! I have had so much going on in my life, mostly stressful, that I really haven't been on the computer too much. I haven't even been sewing a lot either. I am trying to get back in the swing of things. It's just so hard.

I love your thrifty finds. Don't you just love it when you find something! I was at the Goodwill the other day and found three twin flat sheets and one fitted sheet all good quality and never used. I need new sheets for the girls beds and my guestroom. I also found a really nice thread holder with drawers.

I am really day dreaming about Spring too. My body craves warmth and sun and just the idea of hanging outside with the girls playing in their pool sounds so heavenly! I am just so sick of winter and all this snow!

hugs, Ellen

Cute! It's hard for me to be selective at the goodwill. Everything looks so tempting. ;)
