Yesterday's cheap thrill


Yes, I stopped by the Goodwill store yesterday when I went to buy groceries. I bought this little glass dish for .49 cents. I then bought a bag of candy pumpkins for $1.88. Isn't this cute sitting on my sewing machine table? I love cheap thrills!

I always love to get candy corn this time of year. I have some sitting on my desk right now, but its in an ugly plastic container, not a pretty one like yours!

Hi PEN,
Cute things from the thrift and I love the gifts you got in the mail. I just love mail don't you?
Its funny about the candy costing more then the jar. Last year I bought a beautiful wrought Iron candle holder that needed six candles. I paid a few dollars for the holder and twenty for the candles. But I'm pretty sure thats ok. So never mind.

I envy your nice and neat sewing table! I can only dream of such a thing. Pumpkins are OK, but I prefer the candy corn, especially if it is mixed together with peanuts, it tastes like you're eating a payday candy bar. Put a container of them on the table and they won't last long.
