$5.00 Vintage Tablecloth
I'm sharing a few thrift store finds and bargains, that I got before getting sick.
Vintage tablecloth - $5.00, a hand towel and some hankies (can't remember what I paid). I do use the hankies too, in case you are wondering. I put my allergy easer oil on them, and tuck them in my purse when I am away from home. The oil doesn't last as long, but it does help me, and I don't have to carry the oil with me. The are fun to decorate around the house with too. Oh, and I use the tablecloths every day. With kids, they do get changed often, but I love them in my home.
Of course, my very special ones, from my mother, are used on a small table in my own room.
The hand towels are used in the kitchen, as well as in bathrooms here. I also take a few when we go camping.
Writer's Digest books for $.50/each - what a bargain! I am sharing these books with the kids. There is more than one writer in this home. I thought we could use them to keep exercising our brains this winter. Planting season is about to start.
I did not sleep well last night for some reason. I have all the arsenal a person could need with the flu - air purifier, cold mist humidifier, etc. I got up early anyway. Maybe I am finally getting over this and don't need the sleep. The sky is dark this morning - a sign that snow may be arriving today.
I need to call about chick orders (layers and meat) this spring, and get a price for driver's education for my 16 year-old. I finally found my magazine on breeds of chickens best for meat. It was tucked inside my weekly/monthly organizer (that had been put to bed for a few weeks). We have a busy weekend coming up too.
I ordered checks - gosh, they got expensive.
I am not baking anything this week. With so many upset stomachs in the house, it's been leftover homemade chicken noodle soup, toast, tea, crackers, and such.
