cool village friday



after a
great (=cooler)
day
doing fieldwork
and then
some bubble tea,
astrid
and
another of
my labmates,
eric,
went to
value village.

it was a much
more successful
day for
my companions
than for me...
it's always good
to have a lull
in village finds...
after all,
i don't really
need anything!

here are
my finds for friday:

1. cigar box

for
a
vintage paper
swap package

2. hawaiian print skirt

i can't resist
anything
that is
that beautiful
shade of
aqua blue
and/or
a wrap skirt.

3. hello kitty wallet

i don't need
a wallet
but i am sure
i can find
someone
who wants
a HK wallet!

4. tops

i like this cross front
style that
is (was?) in...
tops
to go
with all
my wrap skirts.

that's it for
my friday finds...
hopefully,
studying permitting,
i can post
some finished
craft projects
tomorrow.
enjoy
a cooler
(hopefully)
weekend!

Hi Gwen
The HK tin and bonus HK strap arrived safely. My daughter has claimed the tin so lucky I am left with something! Thanks for a great little prize.

My best friend would love the HK wallet! So cute. You are much more successful at thrifting than I. I hope you have had a fabulous weekend! And send some of that cooler weather our way!

thought of you yesterday when they were talking about putting tiny transmitters on dragonflies....

if that is an unsuccessful thrift day for you - i'd say you're doing pretty darn good! :)
