Sleepy Head

My sister (Ninny's Notes) and her husband came for a quick visit this weekend. We always have so much fun when we get together going to thrift shops and junkin. Didn't get much of that done though, but did make quick trips to Hobby Lobby, Salvation Army Thrift Shop, and a neat little shop called Two Friends. After a few hours of shopping we ate lunch out and then went home. This is what she did as soon as we arrived. She didn't know I took this picture and will see it on this post. Ha! This will teach her to shut her eyes when I'm around.


I must come to her defense however. She suffers from dry eye and her left eye was really bothering her as well as her ears. She also complained of not having any energy. Sounds like she might be coming down with something. Her grandchildren have been sick so she might be coming down with whatever they had.

On another note, we did find some good buys. She will probably post her fantastic buy on her blog, so check there sometime this week. My great buy of the day was this cut crystal bowl with stand. It is beautiful and very heavy, so I know it's of good quality. I bought it for $6.00!





I couldn't believe the price and I ask my sister if I was reading the sales tag correctly. Yes, just six dollars. Thrifting is so much fun. I know what you are thinking. She'll end up storing it in her newly cleaned out closet! I don't think so.

Snow is in the forcast for tomorrrow and Monday. Possibly up to three inches. I can deal with that as long as there is no ice. Hope everyone is having a great weekend. Restful anyway.

Ninny said...

Take JackDaddy's advice, and watch your back, Sis! Ha! Glad to report that I'm feeling better today and I'm snuggling under the snuggie with Tootie! Have a cuppa coffee, some cookies and knitting. Had fun yesterday!

Love you
Liz

Beware of payback from Sleeping Beauty!

And the bowl is fabulous! I found a similar one without a stand at a garage sale for $1! I should send you a picture.

I too went thrift shopping on Saturday. Needed some turtlenecks & found a few in super shape - tossed them in the washer & no one would guess they came from Value Village! One is a Ralph Lauren ($3) - score!!
