Happy news

First, I found this cuter than shit lamp yesterday at an antique/flea mall. The same one where I found Humpty on Mother's Day. It's Hansel and Gretel....oy. I'm doing my screamy, happy hand wavy thing...you'll just have to imagine. It was a tad bit more than Humpty, but it was 20% off. I've now got a collection (I think three lamps is a small collection). I got to go to two thrift stores as well and found a bevy of craft items. Today, we hit the AC Moore here in Columbus...they are shutting down our store....they found out two weeks ago, but we just got a chance to go today. It was rather picked over, but we found quite a bit and saved more than we bought....it was all 60-80% off. I got an embossing tool (the heat thingy)....always thought that looked interesting, but was too cheap to pay full price (and always had another use for my 40% off coupons). Clark found some carving tools. He can make me some rubber stamps now. :) We also went to the B&N and I picked up the new "Cloth, Paper, Scissors" and the new "Somerset Life". I had sent some aprons into Pino and Katherine for their party this weekend and she was in the magazine...I got to see and read some more about them. We went to the commissary after that and bought more food...oy...I'm going to have to ration out the food....they eat way too much. :) Our cable was out most of the afternoon and evening (we have a cable modem) and finally got to check and I won a giveaway. The one I mentioned in my last post. Woohoo...I'm getting a box of artsy crafty junk...I love it. I cannot wait to see what I got. I'm the kind of girl who likes those grab bags of stuff...mish mashes of treasures. I got a bag or two of those this weekend. What I miss is the bags of fabric I used to get in Alabama....$1.99 for a big ole bag of scraps and such. I've gotten some cool, vintage fabric that way. Their bags of Xmas stuff were great, too. Oh well. I won a box of fun stuff. :)
