We had our 1st den meeting of the year and there are 7 new boys signed up and possibly another 7 more to join! I am so excited. We met with the new families at the scout store and got them into uniforms. The 1st and 3rd Mondays of the month you can get slightly used uniforms at a fraction of the cost. I was able to get my son out of his small and into a large cub scout uniform for only $6.00! Yes! We will be looking in the future to making a quilt like this. This was made by another flickr mom and it is really wonderful and looks like it was fun to make.

I have been cleaning through bags and boxes of things….accumulated and set aside. Here are a few new acquisitions.
The Kiss @ 2001 paperback reg price $7.99 purchased at the VV thrift 69 cents
The hardcover probably came from my mother although it has the initials AK 7/02 in pencil in the upper right corner of the first page.
That usually means an antique store or 2nd hand shop.
ROGUE @July 2008 reg price $27.00 has a sticker on front Bargain Priced $6.98
I don’t remember purchasing this one either but it is probably the newest of her books that I have.

THE HOUSE @2006 Hardcover $27.00
Bungalow 2 @2007 3/4 size hardcover $1.99 Bibles for Missions Thrift store. (This one I did purchase.)
and I just realized I have another duplicate… SAFE HARBOUR in hardcover and paperback!
SAFE HARBOUR @2003 Harcover above $26.95 has a garage sale sticker on it $1.00 This book is her 59th best selling novel!
The paperback below $7.99 has a Costco sticker$4.49 . I know I didn’t buy it there but….someone did!
I haven’t had a chance to read in quite a while. This is my winter treasury!
I hope things quiet down enough eventually to have enough time to sit and read.
It won’t happen for a while though. We have 13 weekends of Saturday football!
Maybe during a roadtrip I can get a little reading in. Although most times I do get car sick when I read in the car. If anyone has any home remedies to cure car sickness let me know!
Honor Thyself @2008 $7.99 has a sticker $4.88 on the front…looks like from a used book store. Again not one of my purchases….must be mom!

I have started another collection….Pyrex! They remind me of my childhood and of the times I would go over to my Grandma’s and she would be making molasses cookies.
This weeks thrifting has been quite a success. I scored yesterday on the way home from work by stopping at one shop and snatching up the Pyrex bowl and a video “chick flick”. The cashier gave my little one the tiger stuffed animal for free. We then had the fever and ran over to another thrift store. There was a tied quilt there for $5.99 that I did not purchase but I did take a photo of it with my cell phone. I just have to take some time to figure out the whole download process for my cellphone. I was looking for some thread but there was not even one little spool! Sometimes you win sometimes you don’t. I did find a little stand with flags that I think will be good for a history lesson in cub scouts. It has examples of the early US flags. Earlier this week I picked up two bins and a US flag. The flag was only 2.00 – love it!
I picked up a small tin with a sewing machine on it for only 39cents. I thought it would be nice for my quilt group Christmas present.
I then went over to the children’s section and there was a cute folk doll – again I did not buy it but I saw the marrionette and I could notpass her up. She has a Scandinavian sweather and hat.
I purchased 3 more videos. A Wyatt Earp set of two for my dad. He is not getting up out of his chair much any more. I thought it would be good for him to have something fun to watch. Earlier this week we stopped at a new thrift shop in the area and they had a bunch of John Wayne VCR tapes. I didn’t get them but I think I will go back and see if they are still there after payday on Thursday. The other video was “Little Women” which my son and I watched last night. It was a great lay in bed a cuddle and watch TV movie. It kept his attention which I wasn’t certain it would. He wanted to watch “Back to the Future” which we picked up last week for 99 cents. I didn’t get that video in the photo. The video was got yesterday was “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II”. That was a movie our older son watched all the time. Somewhere we have #1????
I picked up two blue stemware glasses for 69 cents each.
I have an entire curio cabinet of blue glassware.
I now have 9 of the same kind of glasses! I’m getting there.
I really enjoy blue glass of all kinds.
