Last time I posted, I was off to mark a few things off the to do list, and run some errands - some of which were very important! You know - Go to the grocery store so you will have something healthy to eat, pharmacy for whatever, trip to the post office to mail some checks to pay some bills so important things don't get cancelled - you know the drill.
Well.....I got sidetracked (whats new). I remembered a thrift store that starts marking certain things down on Thursdays and since I am working on replenishing my supply of bling to work with, I headed that way. Had not been there in a while as the last few times I have been there did not have much luck, and this trip was not any different. Told the clerk what I was looking for and she said "oh yes, all that old rhinestone stuff sells fast" - I am hearing that more and more these days. I did get 2 pairs of old clip ons from the 70' or 80's and not sure about the necklace, but thought I could use the pendant part.
Went by another thrift shop that I have not been to in a while. When I pulled up and started to get out of the car, a man stepped out of the motorcycle repair place behind it and said "the thrift shop is closed". Guess I did not look like a motorcycle rider and was not there to visit his place of business. :-D Thanked him for the "info" and moved on. Further down the road, stopped in an antique mall . Another place I have not been to in a while and remembered why, as many of the vendors are trying to pay off their mortgage with just a couple of sales.
Did get these 2 reproduction pieces, and even tho one is a very small frame, I am thinking I can convert it to a pendant - will see. The smallest heart is a pin.
Found a few vintage buttons - nothing to get excited about, but a start.

So....What happened to my list of errands? The checks to pay the bills got mailed, went by a local spot and got their salad sampler to go, and never made it to the grocery or pharmacy .
The salad sampler - Delish, but was a salt overload, and days later I am still dealing with that.
On a side note - finally made it to the grocery this morning (3 days later). The rest of the list ? Well...........Lets just say, it is a beautiful day and I could use some vitamin D.
Have a great week !
