Another Relaxing Weekend.

It's been my first official weekend back in Montana. We spent it relaxing and enjoying the BEAUTIFUL weather. It's been in the 70's and breezy. I can feel that very soon we'll have to put in the A/C unit, but until then we're just going to enjoy this.

Yesterday I got a package in the mail from my good friend, Jackie. She recently taught herself to knit. I don't think she's done many projects, but the few she sent me are AMAZING!!! I LOVE them so much. First, is this cowl. I absolutely love the colors, and everything about it. It's so incredibly soft.

The cowl was a bit of a surprise, but I knew she was working on a felted tote bag. It's cabled, which I won't even begin to attempt with knitting! Not only is this really nicely done, but it's HUGE. And I really love the inside fabric too. All in all, it's a really great tote bag!

We also spent quite a bit of time in thrift stores. On our way there, we caught a rummage sale. It was about 1:15 when we got there, and at 1:00, everything was half off. So, we decided to wander around. Seth found this and of course, had to have it. I'm wondering if maybe I can put fur on him to make him look like Bigfoot? lol
However, I do think he's fun, so I'm allowing him to stay in the house for now. haha

Then, I happened to come across this wonderful purse. It didn't have a price on it, but it's a Dooney and Bourke. So, I took it to the register, where they informed me that if they don't have a price, then they're $1, and since it's half off, it's 50 cents. So, I got a beautiful suede Dooney and Bourke for 50 cents. haha.

Then, at another thrift store, I found this wonderful coffee mug. For some reason, I've been fascinated by odd coffee mugs, so of course this one was perfect for me. Seth and I have been definitely fascinated with everything that is West related. :)

That's all for now. Today I'm planning on finishing my big yeti so that I can put him in the shop. Have a good rest of your weekend!

I *heart* thrift shopping. The bear head is awesome. Your friend is pretty good for being a beginner! I love the tote bag.


Awesome deal on the purse and the boot mug!
