Yep, It's Rednesday and Life Has Been Good.

Hello everyone!  Can you believe this is my second post of the new year?  Not that 2010 was bad, but something unexpected came over me at the beginning of 2011.  A sense of contentment and calm.  I didn't make a resolution.  It wasn't a conscience decision.  It just happened.  So, instead of trying to figure it out.  Maybe over-think it, like I tend to do, I am going with it. 

Thrifting has been good.  Gas prices have kept me from venturing out too much, but those few times really paid off.  This is only about half of my haul.  The other half, when I post it, will be less colorful.  I had to group all these together for Rednesday!  Yeah!   Sue @ Sue Loves Cherries is our wonderful hostess!

Of course I was hoping to find Valentine's to add to my collection.  I collect mostly birds, baseball and anthropomorphic foods.  I only found two, but two is better than none, right?

I love, love, love the Constitution book.  It's from 1936. I totally forgot it would be missing a few amendments...six to be exact!  It will be a great addition to my patriotic items.  As will the cupcake picks.  I found the ones on the right first.  They are 48 star flags.  They were sold be the piece and I resisted buying them all and went with 6.  Then I ran across the bag of 50 star picks for less than the price of my original 6!  Now to use them!

The fabric, I hope to use recovering my kitchen chairs as soon as I can find a suitable tablecloth to cut up.  I thought this fabric might make a good skirt on those chairs.  I guess we'll see.

The price was right on the glasses, so hopefully I will find a few more somewhere in my travels.

The felt covered heart beads are new.  I actually have a few projects in mind, but in typical fashion, I'm a little behind.  Of course I will share anything I complete!

Now I need to run.  I heading to Mom and Dad's today.  They bought a new computer and yours truly setting it up for them.  I am hoping to hit a few thrift store along the way.....


  1. Hey, I have those glasses (4 of them. Between us we can almost have a party!) Love, love, love the incomplete constitution book!

  2. Shelley, glad you made it! I love that Constitution book, too!

  3. Hey Shelley, I'm glad to see a post from you! You always have the best luck finding vintage goodies. Love the Constitution book and everything else, but those glasses are my favorite! Only a few more months and you'll be able to sit outside and sip something frosty from them! ;o)
    Happy REDnesday!
