Have you ever seen a noise maker like this?
I didn't buy it the first time I saw but when I went back and saw it again I decided I needed to buy it. I've never seen a little wooden noise maker like this, I have several noise makers but none like this. I'll be putting it away with our New Years Eve supplies, pretty sure there will be a fight over it too.
I picked up a few Architectural Digests to browse through. The local thrift store gives magazines away so whenever I see a few I'm interested in I grab them. When I'm done I re-donate them, as a matter of fact I donate any magazines I happen to get.
This vile bright orange fabric is perfect for a couple accent pillows on our bed. We have a turquoise/white bed spread and I've been looking for 3 months for a piece of orange fabric. Not being in a hurry to make the pillows covers made it possible to find enough fabric for 50¢. I could have easily bought the fabric brand new but it's the thrill of the "not buying retail hunt" that I enjoy.
And one bit of interesting excitement for me this week, I won a giveaway over at Cheerful Thrifty Door. I never win anything so this is neat for me. On that note I want to encourage everyone to make sure you keep coming back because my 3rd blog anniversary is coming up and I have an awesome giveaway dreamed up.
How about you, did you find anything exciting this week?
Peace and Love--
