I'm a Sucker for a Good Dish Towel

Truly, I am! I absolutely love dish towels, the more the merrier! I especially love flour sack dish towels. They are large, absorbant and have cool, vintage charm about them. Since dish towels are part of my everyday life I wanted to create a few fun towels to add some much needed dazzle to my kitchen. I think these will do the trick! I made a few extra and listed them in my shop...instant dazzle for your kitchen!

Thrifty Finds

Diamonds in the rough
McCoy pottery
All polished up
I love "thrifting", always have. It wasn't until recently that I learned of the term. I just called it "hunting for cool, old stuff". Once I entered blog-land I discovered many more thrifters out there who share their thrifty finds on their blogs... hey, I want to do that too. So, here are my lastest finds. Driving home from work on Friday I stumbled upon a Vintage Yard Sale! Had my husband been in the car with me at the time he would have promptly spouted "just keep driving, honey, look away, look away!". But I was alone, so a U-turn I did flip! I only had $15 in cash on me (a mere fortune to this mother of a teenager, I was surprised I had ANY cash). As I entered the sale the lady said "if you see something you like, make an offer"...oh boy! I could have spent a lot more than $15 dollars at that sale, but I gathered up several treasures and made an offer...fifteen dollars?...SOLD! Yippee!!

Big Huge Labs - Mosaic Maker!

I just discovered this site, Big Huge Labs - Make a Mosaic, Pop Art Poster, Jigsaw Puzzle, etc, from a photoset, favorites, tags, or individual digital photographs or images. It's a whole world of creative photo possibilities! This is way too much fun...I'm going to be up all night...
