Hoo Boy!

What a thrifting trip that was! We started in Reidsville and went to the Salvation Army store and Goodwill. I found an Apple-branded cover for my iPad mini in there. It's light blue and I love it.  At Salvation Army, I got some cards, a snowman pin, a wallet, a CD, a cheese grater, and two packs of those cute little animal cable protectors.  We went from there to Wentworth NC and ate at a place called Mom's Kitchen.  We were looking forward to it. It was not great.  It was just.... I don't want to be mean, but it wasn't good. We won't be going back there.  We went from there to the Mayodan Goodwill that we recently discovered and I found a few things there.  A small Keurig k-cup holder (It fits under the little brewer in my room! LOL), a case (that will fit an external HD), a set of Tetris magnets, and a cute little Halloween ceramic thingee with a ghost, a tree, and little jack o lanterns.  We went on to a 'new' Goodwill in Walkertown NC.  I found a Sak bag exactly like the one I wanted at Myrtle that I bought on eBay. This one is the same bag but instead of being black, it's teal. I absolutely LOVE it.  I got that, a bit metal jack o lantern, a S'well bottle with donut design, a purple zipper pouch, a box of Ticonderoga pencils, and a Homer Simpson shirt! I can't wear it, it's way too small, but I had to have it! Lol

We left there and were heading to the Goodwill in Eden but we ended up going right past the one in Mayodan. They are constantly putting stuff out there so we stopped back in. I found some stampers and a cute crab plush.  I love crabs! He is red is so cute!  We then went to the Goodwill in Eden and I found a DS game! They had quite a few, but there was one that I was pretty sure I'd love. It was Crafting Mama!  I always adored the Cooking Mama games so I got this. It was still in the original case, too. That was $4. I was so happy to finally see some DS games and one I actually wanted! I'll try it later as I haven't been home long and I've been working on my writing.  I'm too tired to do it justice tonight so I've just been editing.

After Eden, we headed to our last stop, Martinsville, VA, and to the Goodwill there.  We ate again in Eden at a drive-up place.  That was much better than our lunch!  At the Martinsville Goodwill, I didn't find anything!  That was okay because I had already spent plenty.  I love all my finds. I'm so happy that I found that purse! I adore the black one so much and this is the same purse only in a cooler color. This once still has the Sak dangle thingee on it, too!

The CD I found in the Salvation Army in Reidsville is from the Vince Guaraldi Trio. It's all the music from the 1965 A Charlie Brown Christmas special  I just happened to see it while I was in line and snatched it up!  I've already ripped it to my MacBook Pro so I can enjoy it on here and on my iPod. I love the music from it.  

I just looked up the cover I got for the iPad Mini. It sells new on the Apple store for $39.99! @_@; I got it for $4.99. SCORE!!!! lol  I am pretty sure this will also fit any iPad Mini so if I get a newer one, I should be able to use it with those too. :) It was a good thrifting trip. I'll try to remember to take pictures tomorrow.  I need to move everything off my bed so I can actually sleep in it tonight. Plus, I want to try Crafting Mama!

 


Whee to early packages!

So, I had two packages that were estimated to be delivered tomorrow.  I noticed that in Informed delivery it said today!  I checked my package tracker app. (Package Buddy) and sure enough, both were scheduled to be here today! Yay!  So, what did I get?  Well, I got another Fossil purse. lol It's the exact bag I bought in February but it's Green.  I love the size and shape of the black one and I've been watching eBay for another in another color. I found an off-white one, a blue one (I missed that one!), a yellow one, and this green one.  The green one was a great price so I bid on it and won with my opening bid. Yay!

The other item is a cute 'kit' from the NaNoWriMo store.  It's a pencil case that has a pencil, a big eraser, a pencil sharpener and s several NaNo stickers! ^___^ . The pencil cases zipper is orange like the trim on my bujo backpack!  I put my daily use/often used pens in it.  It will reside in my bujo bag.  I love the pencil case and the bag.  The Fossil bag even came with a Fossil dust bag.  This is the first Fossil bag I've gotten that the seller included the dust bag.  I'm happy with my purchases.  I'll share them below and I want to show the puzzle.  I got out the chess board and took all the pieces out of and off the puzzle.  I separated them by type so when I'm looking for a particular piece, it will be a little easier.  I have some of the pieces on the white board down the side and the rest are on the chess board.  Hopefully this will help speed up the progress a little!  Here is the handbag, the NaNo kit, and the puzzle:

I've done my French lesson and my NaNo writing for today, so after I post this, I'll work on the puzzle a bit.  I am extremely tired as I was up way too late reading on my Kindle on that zombie book. :P

 


Photo shoot for a purse?

YES! LOL  I got my purse today and I moved my stuff over to it and then took it out in the yard for a photo shoot. :P  The lighting in my house isn't the best, so I figured that would be better.  I have to share some of the photo shoot with you. :p

 

 So, there you go.  Some outside and some inside.  LOL  I'm in love with this purse.  I switched from my current wallet back to my Kate Spade one. May she RIP. 


Monday Madness :p

Not really, though!  I got up and got in my walk at the regular time.  It was cool, but it was sunny so that was nice.  I got in my walk and came home and relaxed a bit and then did my workouts.  I got those done and did my French lesson and then relaxed a bit before washing a ton of dishes.  I fixed lunch and then went to my room for a bit.  I noticed my friend pulling into my driveway.  I didn't know he was coming.  I went to see what was up.  He needed to put brake pads on his car and wanted to do it in my driveway.  My driveway is a lot bigger than his.  He did those and it took a lot longer than he planned.  I went out to help with the last bit.  After he left, I fixed some dinner and now I'm just relaxing watching some episodes of the Flintstones.  

I ordered a bag on Amazon and it came today.  It's supposed to be a small messenger bag, but I'm going to use it as a purse.  It's army green colored and canvas.  It has a lot of pockets.  I love having everything organized.  It's pretty cool.  It has pockets in front, a pocket in back, a pocket inside the bag, and  two pockets on each side of the bag.  I like it a lot.  Here are some pictures:

 I love all the pockets!  The pictures are of the front, the front flap pulled up, the inside of the big section, and the back.  The back even has a zip pocket!  It's so cute!  I added my Jake the Dog rubber keychain on the main zipper and a little dangle one with starfish on it from the beach.  That little dangle keychain usually gets moved from purse to purse. ^_^
