Yum Hey What's for Dinner Mom?: The Penny Worthy Project--got my thrift on


The Penny Worthy Project--got my thrift on

For the first time in a long time I got out thrifting, alone. I found this cute coat for my middle son, seems brand new too. Perfect for fall and spring.

Can I just say how much I LOVE this vase? I love it. Anyone know anything about it?

 There is no makers mark on the bottom.


My boys built a boat from a pallet and scrap lumber, the cats love it. Or Thunder loves it and beat up Agatha to gain control of the shipping fortune. Or not. Whatever.

She still rules the boat. Thunder cat.

One of my favorite movies, thought I'd try it out the novel. Anyone read it?

Two old crusty stools for the work table in the garage.

Perfectly worn in the right spots.

Instantly loved by the two boys they were bought for. Perfect.

Ohhhh vintage pressure canner with wooden handles, if I can find a gasket for it I will take it to the Cooperative Extension Service and get it tested. If I can't find a gasket I'll admire it and plant flowers in it.

Peace and Love--


  1. You had a nice thrift shopping experience. The coat is in great condition, and the stools are very nice. I have never used a pressure cooker, maybe I should examine that option. Thanks for hosting "Penny Worthy Project" I enjoy seeing everyones thrift finds.

  2. I love the book Cold Mountain. . .even better than the movie (which I love)

  3. Ohh, nice pressure canner and cozy perfectly-faded chairs. Beautiful cat photos, too!

  4. Cold Mountain is a great read, I agree with Molly B, better than the movie but most books usually are. The movie was good though.


Am I talking DIRECTLY to you? Well then let me know!
