It was good that we went on Tuesday, because at 2:00 AM Wednesday night the heavens opened and we received 7" of rain in five hours. The rain was very welcomed as we viewed the lake to the North beyond capacity. Then a walk to our low water crossing revealed what we did not want to see. Our culvert was 125 feet down stream as the water was rushing towards the lake in the north. All the gravel had also washed and we were stranded!
Being stranded meant that I had time to work on some new creations. So between loads of laundry, I created some cute pocket necklace bags. They are just the right size for money and a cell phone while you are out shopping.
Once we were able to cross, we headed to Seguin, near our home, and Ray graciously agreed to stop by two thrift stores. This is where I found a great supply of "BUTTONS"!This is a small sample of my find. They are sorted and ready to take to Fredericksburg Trade Days. In addition, some of my finds included vintage fabric, sewing supplies, and two great suitcases. Suitcases make such great storage containers!
I also found these two daisy votive candle holders, red splatterware kettle and colorful, floral print.
This is Elaine, the other sister, and my first time to blog, so be kind as well as helpful with your comments. This is a process, as is "thrifting" it is a learning process. A friend reminds me, "Dear God, keep me teachable."
