    This weeks been a good week thrifting. I found a picnic basket lined with the red checkered print and it was a complete set still. GW for $9.00!!! My niece is graduating from H.S. next month and she told me while we were out thrifting last year that she'd love one. So I've been on the lookout and wasn't finding them with the stuff still inside. Well I about jumped for joy when I opened this one up. It's going to make a great graduation gift. Unconventional, but I know she'll love it!

    I also found a Pyrex bowl set for $10.00. It's one of the released they've done the last few years of reproduction prints. This is a yellow flower/butterfly print that was popular in the 70's and 80's. My mother in law loves butterflies so I bought it for her for Mother's Day. The pieces have never been used and all three have their lids and it comes in the cutest box ever.

    Today I also bought 2 gifts for Christmas. I was at a craft show and bought two scarfs that can be worn 3 different ways. They were really cool and something I link the girls will love.

    Minta, great deal with the picnic basket, your niece will love it.

    When I was in Hobart I picked up a pair of shorts for DS, down from $35 to $3.00. I also got him a book that I know that he will love. Got DD two books that she was looking at at an art gallery a few weeks back. The art gallery wanted $20 each, I picked both books up for $10 each.
    Went shopping yesterday and go my mum a lovely powder blue striped ling sleeved top for $10. It will either go into her mothers day gift or put aside for Christmas.

    Picked up a lot of makeup that DD would like for 40% off yesterday. Good brands, L'Oreal and Revlon. Lip balms down to 4.95 and a primer she uses down from $30 to $18. Happy with that and another thing ticked off the list. I normally put all of her make up items in a pretty gift box. This saves her having to purchase things throughout the year.

    I bought a really cute Advent calendar display item at the Spring Fling Sale that was held with the Charity Event. It's a long piece of heavy twine with red, numbered clothespins attached. I've done 24 Days of Smalls (undies) for Sophia and 24 Days of Gift Cards so I think I'll combine the two and alternate them. I'll pick up some of those mesh drawstring bags they sell in the wedding favors aisle at Michaels for the undies and I have a template to make gift card envelopes so I'll whip some up with my stash of patterned paper. I think it will look cute. Of course, I say that now, but if it ends up looking like something that was made by a kindergartner, I'll switch tactics and use the clothespin line to hang my Christmas cards :rolleyes:.
