Hello Blogland!! It has been a glorious but a bit cool weekend. Spent a good part of Saturday spreading compost on the flower beds and vegetable garden. We get it from the country landfill super-cheap by the pick-up truck full. I am PAYING for it today–good thing I have pain pills cuz the Fibro is raging!!
Clare of Miss Simmonds Says commented that MrBill always looks so sad. He definitely has “sad-eyes” but he’s generally a pretty happy guy. He is just a more low-key quiet dog. He’s not too thrilled with picture-taking. Or clothes. LOLOLOL I gave him a bath yesterday and when we went outside he headed straight for the lovely manure on the garden for a quick stink-roll. Thankfully I stopped him in time!!
I’m pretty lucky to have loads of thrift shops nearby. In Frederick-the city I work in, there are 2 Goodwills, 1 Salvation Army, A Goodwill outlet, 2 consignment shops, and I just found out the hospital has a charity shop downtown. I hit these up monthly–except for the one Goodwill on my way home I stop by weekly.
In the city near where I live, Hagerstown, there is 1 Goodwill, 1 Salvation Army, 2 Mission Thrifts, 2 consignment shops, and 2 new consignment/thrifts opening later this spring. I hit these up at least once per month. Friday I made my rounds of the Hagerstown thrifts. And I must say there were goodies to be found!!! Here’s my haul:
I had to also stop by Walmart for some dog-chow and spray paint. I found this awesome maxi dress for under $20!!! What’s not to love?? Black and white tribal print, cotton knit fabric, and the cool “jewel” embellishment at the neckline!! I snapped it right up!
I wore this outfit to work last week. Maxi dresses are like wearing a nightgown to work. A co-worker said I looked like a bruise. OH-KAY!!!
