Blue Sky Farm

My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

Senior Day means Bargains







I forced myself to go to the thrift store today, I know it was really a hard decision to go..but I remembered today was Senior Discount Day and well since I am being frugal & trying to be thrifty I needed to go..and I am a Senior....the good part was I really Saved money. ..Well, Let's say I got some great bargains.
I only spent $16.50 for tall hese treasures some for my bathroom and for my kitchen, The cast iron dutch oven is a John Wright Classic Gourmet, I cleaned it up but the inside is in need of great seasoning. I must use more elbow grease to make it usable, but I thought it was too good to pass up for $1.50 even if I never use it to cook in. The white porcelin basket was made in Portugal, I will use it for hand towels & wash cloths and it was only $2.99 . I loved the dainty floral pitcher too. $1.99. and the small basket for soap $.99 The blue dishes were $2.50 for all 4 pieces. Then as I was making it around the store for the 3rd time, I bought a white sweater for me $2.99. I spotted this cute brass tin with a pewter bird on top..and inside was a small sewing kit. I had to have that too...The white tin and the cute little blue bottle $ .99 each Just as I was at the check stand I saw the glass jar with the wood lid.. Well what would you have done? You bet I grab it too. I probably won't go back there for a few days... or until the next Senior Day.
