It's been an odd week for me, I won't try to hide it. I feel restless, out of sorts, shouty, just generally cranky. I guess it's cabin fever and I ought to get over myself, but excuse me while I wallow.
Maybe my thrifting level is too low? I did spend almost a whole day out shopping with a good friend of mine, we thrifted and hit the Lands End sale at Sears. I've taken a no buying retail pledge, but after weeks of looking for pants, jeans, slacks for our 7 year old I gave up and bought some on super sale at Sears. I don't like Sears, I won't buy anything else there but the Land's End clothing has such a great guarantee I felt it was a worthy investment. On sale for 15 dollars and then an extra 30% off, I bought him 3 pairs. The guarantee is what sold me, if they wear it out or ruin it Land's End replaces it. Period.
I did find a green tee shirt at a thrift store
and some duralene which appears to be drafting paper, looks like thick rice paper, I'm sure my valentines will have some of this in them somewhere.
I found a KitchenAid, but didn't buy it I let my friend grab it up for a special present for someone.
I also worked on a meat replacement recipe today, thrifty and delicious. I think it costs about a dollar to make the whole pan, I'll figure it out and post it for Just Another Meatless Monday tomorrow. So come visit tomorrow for a vegan meat replacement and a gluten free version too.
Another thrifty little thing that happened was Christina of Dinner at Christina's gave me the Stylish Blogger award so I'll pass that on to some bloggers. It's a great little way to say I care without cluttering up someones house, no dusting of anything! I also have to share 7 random facts about myself:
1) my eyes turn different colors depending on my mood they are usually green but can turn blue and purplish BEWARE
2) I WANT to be a knitter but I'm not very good
3) I hate the word foodie
4) and nom
5) I have big feet
6) we just adopted another yellow lab, he's huge
7) my studio is almost done, 1 coat of paint on the ceiling should do it
