thrifty

Oh, the joy of thrifting. Jeff and I took a trip to the Central Valley this weekend, took in the sights, and spent some time at the local thrift stores. They did not disappoint. Here are some of my purchases.

Jeff and I already have a huge collection of vintage glassware, but I couldn't leave these behind (I got three of 'em).

I picked up some 70s craft books, too. All published by Meredith, of course. This one makes me very happy. Crafts from trash! A splendid notion.
don't throw it away!
Also in the photo: Chuy, and our new avocado & white chenille bedspread. Both bring me much joy.

Oh, and this sweet German doll. What can I say, I like my dolls on the creepy side.

Sorry about the lag time between posts of late; I've been pretty busy, going here and there and doing this and that. I hope that I'll have some fun stuff to show you next week. Jeff and I went to the Alternative Press Expo the weekend before last, which inspired me to do some comics, perhaps I'll present some of those too. My current creative to-do list is pretty long, I'm attempting to accomplish it all in the next few months. Let's see if I can pull it off!

The doll has no eyebrows, that might add to the creep factor. It was nice meeting you last night at Doe, hope I wasn't too much the star-struck fan "Are you Jess Hutchison?"

Chuy's beautiful eyes are a perfect match for your avocado & white chenille bedspread. Lovely!
