So I go take the Thrift Shop Tour today, my mission? To find interesting containers for the portion of our herb and veggie garden that we plant in pots left on the deck. Well, I found a few, but what I did not expect to find (as they've been really rare lately) was the mother-load of buttons. Vintage, plastic, glass, pearl...broken, some obviously newer, some that still had wonderful old thread through the holes.
The Whole Lot!
Some of the more interesting picks of the litter
I also found an 25 year old book on beginning weaving. (You know, just in case I decide to pick that art up too.) There were a few almost new tubes of water color paints as well that made it into my checkout basket!
