The Penny Worthy Project






How are you spending your pennies?



This week went by so fast and I swear I got NOTHING done I said I would or I thought I would. I'm not actually sure what I did. Oh wait kids were out of school Monday due to weather. Not snow but a huge rainy windy storm that froze and made the whole world a skating rink. Then everything melted, our driveway was gravel and puddles and now we have 7 inches for fresh snow. Winter in Alaska is never boring. 

Apart from our crazy weather the rest of the week was rather normal. I thrifted but mostly for myself which is odd because I'm trying like crazy to simplify my house. When I saw this crock 




go through my feed on facebook in the online yard sale group I knew I was interested. The asking price was more than I wanted to pay but I agreed to meet with the girl selling it and look at it. I wanted it to make sauerkraut in and I was assured it was in perfect shape. It was not as you can tell but I liked it enough to make an offer on it. She accepted and now it's mine. It is old and lovely, I wish I knew it's story.

I also bought this beautiful Starbucks coffee mug. It's really pretty!




And I got this a while back


 and I've been working on my skills. You knew when third graders crochet circles around you it is time to step up your game. Now I'm the one making them go "WOW" how did you do that? Oh man I wish I knew kid I wish I knew.


Lots of great link ups last week Live Like No One Else brought us cheap internet, GREAT TIP!! Lynda was after my own heart with fabulous finds last wee and Amy and Angie had the cutest Sailor suit dress ever! Check out the ENTIRE link up from last and then get your link ready too!

  Peace and Love--

  1. Now I'm thinking gee, I wonder if there is a Facebook yard sale group near me? But no, that would be dangerous when we are working so hard to pay off debt. ;)
