Thrift Store Finds

At lunch today I went to a thrift store a few blocks away. I bought the wooden box with the rabbit for ----- .99 and the pot handle holder for .29! I also got a pair of pj bottoms new with the tag for $2.00! It was a good day. I'll post photos of two of my finds. I forgot to take a photo of the pj bottoms and they have to go to the laundry. My granddaughter will love the wooden box and she can keep treasures in it. I just need to clean it up and the pot handle holder I had never seen (I don't know why) but I thought I'd use this one as a pattern.
Today was beautiful but it got chilly toward the end of the day. I like it when it's cooler but I don't look forward to winter. I'm still picking tomatoes off the vines in the garden!
Tomorrow I'm excited about as I'm meeting a young woman from Brazil (now married to an American) for lunch. She may be able to go with us to Brazil next year and she speaks the language!! This will be excellent since I'm leading this trip but I don't speak the language.
When I have time I want to load the photos from China on flicker so that I can share the great trip we had last year. I know some people think they can only travel in the USA and I love our country but there are so many beautiful, wonderful and exciting things to see all over the world. I think you have to experience a trip to understand that you come away with memories of people that you will always remember for their kindness, the foods, the scenery, the culture ----
Okay, I'll get off the soap box as I need to get ready for church. I've been going on Thursday nights. I need one day that I don't leave the house (if possible) and that has been Sunday.

Remember that I went to Brazil? We loved it and thankfully our leader spoke Portuguese...what part of Brazil are you going to? You are so right, your granddaughter will love the bunny box!
