Find #1: Donvier Ice Cream Maker - $1.00. A good deal, right?
Okay, so it only makes one half pint of ice cream. It's a little one serving maker, and oh so cute. We have the larger variety and rarely, okay, never use it. I thought this would be fun to play around with and make a little treat now and then. We like to take a Kool-Aid single packet, add half the amount of water and give it a spin in the Donvier. It makes a tasty slush in a couple of minutes.
Find #2: What the ?????
At this particular thrift, they have these huge bins where they dump clothes and everything is 50¢ an item or 3/$1.00. I never look in the bins because people are always crowded around them digging and I don't really go looking for clothes anyway. But, recently I have been buying wool sweaters for felting, so I have been digging in the bin looking for sweaters. Last week I reached into the bin and pulled out a vintage tablecloth! A tablecloth in the clothes bin. Oh, No! How many have I missed not knowing this. (Tell me none, tell me none!) I gave it a good soaking and the stains came right out, including what appeared to be big cranberry sauce stain right in the center. Love the horses and covered bridges on the sides (not pictured).
Last week I had a Royal Gift bequeathed to me. Chris at Yardsalequeen saw these vintage-y rusty old ornaments and immediately thought of me. I love them! Thank you Queen. (There will come a day when I will not want people to think old and rusty and then Shara.)
Have you been digging for junk or creating anything lately?
