IT WAS RAINING AGAIN, SO SHOPPING I WENT...

I had planned to put a border along side of my vegetable garden to keep the lawn grass at bay but it rained yesterday and I got cabin fever so to Value Village I went and this is what I got.


I got this man size Harris Tweed wool jacket. I know that you don't get that much wool from a jacket but I just had to have it.


Then I got this other man wool jacket . I love the texture of it so I had to have it too. Both jackets have been washed and dried and are ready to take apart.


By now you know that I'm a basket case for baskets so I had to have this cute little thing. It has a wooden bottom as well as inside the cover, and I love the cute latch on it. It will soon be filled with wool or something related to rug hooking.


I found this wool blanket with the right weight for $5.99 and took it home, it has been washed and dried too.


I found this floor lamp for $6.99 but it needs a shade.  I won't have to move my other floor lamp around anymore for hooking or quilting.


I couldn't resist this large piece of new Christmas fabric. It a heavy tight weaved  cotton with  gold metallic for a mere $2.99. I'm not sure what I'll make with this. Maybe some place mats or table runners.


This large piece of heavy fabric feels like jean material and I thought that it would make some awesome aprons. I couldnt just leave it there could I? All I need now is time to sew, right...


Since I've been collecting bunnies I thought that I would give them a nice home. That bunny dish had a price label of $10.00 and I got it for $1.99, the bunny bank was $2.99 and the mimi bunnies were $.69 each.


I know that Halloween is still 5 months away but I fell in love with this cute sign. It was well made and I like the handle. It was a bit pricey at $5.99 but what the heck. I took it anyway.


And for the kid in me, I got this little sturdy $.69 basket to pick a few things from the garden. It's 10 inches long by 7 1/2 wide and 6 inches deep.   The handle is collapsable  for storage. Perfect for me.

And all that shopping took me less than 15 minutes.  The place was packed so I guess that everyone was shopping too because it was raining.

Now it's back to the garden since the sun is out. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. Have a great week everyone.
