American Cancer Society Relay For Life

Our church is sponsoring "Relay for Life" this June along with a lot of other organizations. We're having Yard Sales, Bake Sales, Car Washes and a Benefit Concert at Leiper's Fork Recreation Center. I'm so excited about it. At the benefit we'll have a live auction, a silent auction, food for sale and a bake sale.

I've got lots of things in mind to make for the sale. Can 't wait to get started.

Vickie (my sis) is not doing well at all. Please keep her and my family in your prayers.

Just got my brace off last week and really hadn't started any major projects.

I did thrift this adorable platter at Goodwill.

New Goodwill Store

Thomas and I had a lot of fun shopping at the new Goodwill store that opened this week in Franklin. It is pretty awesome. We got a Schwinn Airdyne exercise bike for $16.99, an iron for $4.99 and a sheet (I used a pillowcase just like this sheet on my quilt).

I have a lot of cute pillowcases to make another pillowcase quilt.

Thrifting and gifts from my Mom

Found this sheet today for $.99 at Goodwill. I can see 2 little gowns made from this. The bottom is embroidered.
Creamer from Goodwill $.99
My Mom was doing some cleaning in her basement and found these tins. They were my Grandma's.

Mom found this cornflake doll she ordered for me when I was 5 years old. We both forgot all about it. Not in good condition like the one on ebay. My grandchildren weren't impressed.

My babies got a haircut

They both got their haircut yesterday. It looks so thick and very adorable. It really was about time.

Thrifting saucers

I've been collecting these adorable little saucers for a while. They are my dessert plates for company. I like collecting things that don't take up a lot of room.
