My friend has some mobility problems and not only needs a cane, but it is also necessary she wear a brace on her leg. So we are always looking for the best handicapped parking spot. We started yesterday with this spot right in front of the door at our first stop... We call this a "movie star parking spot" and it's always a sign of momentous bargains awaiting us. And it was true...not only did I fill my list, I found many things I didn't even realized I needed.. We went to four stores and had to come home because the car and the trunk were full.
When I was at the retreat Connie Kalina had a nifty "mini" curling iron for her silk ribbons so that was on my list. I found this mini hair straightener and it works perfectly. I needed a pouch for a organizer for medications in my purse and a nice frame for a picture of Molly for my kitchen.. I found a lovely velour blanket to make new inserts for Morris's bed and several nice high count cotton sheets to cut up....
This "Atlantic" suitcase is in pristine condition and just what DH wanted...extra large and sturdy.
I never have found the other extension for the rolling base on one of my big magnifying lamp and this base will work perfectly for my big heavy lamp to be mobile again...
The lamp part itself is lightweight and has a long enough arm that if I add two mounts to the kitchen counters, it will be ideal for reading recipes.
I was jumping for joy with this unexpected find.
Also found 2 absolutely gorgeous glasses for my gin and tonics...
And there were many other finds I didn't even get photographed. I was not just joking when I said the car was full.
All in all we were grinning ear to ear at every check out counter..
I am at the final stage of the hanky anniversary piece and adding the last few charms before it goes onto the backing... It seems when I get to this stage with any project I see every single flaw and hate it. I'll be so glad to be done with this as it has been a real struggle.
