Salvation Army Thursday Finds Stoneware Crock

Well I hope everyone had a wonderful day.It was such a great day for me the sun was shining after a little snow storm.Cold but felt great.Woke up early and was so ready for the day.
Hubby asked if I would like to go down town yes we live in such a small area we have uptown and downtown in all it is about 10 miles either way.Very spread out.
Well we went to the Goodwill and I found a very good sturdy cross stitch frame not one of those flimsy ones.
I about a week ago decided to make a sampler from my own idea and so I have been free handing and by that holding the fabric in my hand with no frame.So today's find was great it was a dollar.
Well we left there and went over to the Salvation Army they are about one block apart so I was okay since we are down this way what will it hurt.
Went in looking at some fabric and some nic nacs and my hubby comes over and says what about this.I was yes that is something I love stoneware.It has a blue star on front with the number 6 in the center.I just love it.I know nothing about its worth.We paid $10.00 for it and I just love it.Sorry for the bad picture
Can you believe Friday is just around the corner.I hope everyone has such a wonderful night.May God keep you in his arms.Until next time Judy

It Has Been Sometime but I am back

It has been sometime since I have posted on my blog.I have had some major family issues I had to take care of which needed my full attention.Things have gotten back to normal and my family is doing so much better.
So I know the last post was about organizing and I was and have organized my coupon binder.
The binder I was using I got from the Goodwill it was just a regular binder no pockets I bought it for 0.50 cents just starting out with the binder method for my coupons so I figured 50 cents not bad.
So after Christmas I was looking at my coupon binder just trying to figure how I can organize it any better.
I went through and pulled all the expired coupons got a little behind due to the holidays.
I went to Walmart and bought some really cheap dividers I mean cheap I think 5 for 85 cents I only bought 2 packs.So I am putting it all back together and I think this looks so so much better.
So the day after I get my binder all set up hubby and I stop into our local Goodwill and I buy this binder cause it has a zipper closer and a arm strap and dividers.I just love it it is called a Case it.I paid $3.00 Sorry for the bad bad pictures but the second one is to show the price. I thought not bad.It has a place for everything.I just love it.Until next time stay warm Judy
