discounted flowers

It is -10 with the wind blowing and I thought that a few flowers were in order. I got the yellow mums on discount and they are in a yard sale vase that is bluish green and the
amarilys is from christmas and just decided to bloom.
I have heard that the weather is bad across the country.
So tip of the day buy some flowers even if they are discounted.(walmart has a good selection) Its good for the soul.

I work full time but get out early enough wed, thru, and friday to hit one or two thrift stores on my way home. I found an ll bean flannel duvet and a sweet set of sheets. The duvet can be a blanket with out being stuffed it is so heavy and nice. I have a 3/4 bed for those of you that do not know what that is, it's to big to be a twin and to small to be a double. It is a general pain to find sheets for.
so I took a chance on these ,they are twin. THEY FIT! I spent a total of $13.00. I am always so impressed when I sleep in a bed with yummy linens but when I look at the price of those linens I pull my thread bare sheets over my head and say some day. Well this is my second post with picture I may learn how to do this yet!

first post

This is my first post and I am shaking in my slippers! I have no clue what I am doing, but here I go. I have bad grammer,and bad spelling so don't tell me about it. Just laugh quietly to yourself.
What I am great at is thrifting, and crafts. I love to go to high end stores and see what's new then thrift around(I always carry a list) to see if I can recreate it. you would be amazed at what I find. (or maybe you wouldn't). So my best hint of the day is shop at animal shelter thrift shops.
everyone wants to help an animal. I have found great things there. Plus our family is full of pound puppies and kitties. (Hi Rebel,Baily and Brogen!)Well Iguess that is it for today, maybe I will get brave and post a picture next time. Drop me a line let me you know it's not just floating in space.
