Weekend Ramblings

Hello all!  Here it is the weekend once again.  Where does the time go?!  I had the fortune of getting to go to a Good Will again this past week.  Found lots of goodies to bring home with me.  One of these days I need to go through my stuff in the basement and take a bag *to* Good Will!  lol  I enjoy looking around there, and try to only bring things home with me that make me happy.  :)  First up is this yarn.  It was all 99 cents a skein.  I didn't think that was too bad, so I snatched it up! Not the I *need* yarn, but it'll get used eventually and I thought the colors were good to have on hand.

I have a thing for stuffed animals.  I didn't get them when I was little, and our kids didn't have many as we couldn't afford them.  So now I enjoy looking around Good Will for any stuffed animals I might like.  I can usually afford the ones at Good Will.  These three cuties came home with me this time. :)  After I took their picture, they got a bath in my washing machine.  ;)

Next up is this bunny figurine.  I love bunnies!  I think they are so cute...don't you?!

Lastly is this little wren magnet.  You know how I love birds!  I just had to snatch up this little cutie!  I put it on my fridge right away.

As always, I have been doing a bit of crocheting.  This week it was skirts.  I decided to make skirts for my granddaughter's 18" dolls, and then I decided to make a matching one for my granddaughter.  I'll be giving them to her tomorrow when I see her.  We're going to their place for a Super Bowl party.  I don't care about football at all, but hey, it's a chance to see the grandkids!  :D  I posted these on my Facebook crochet page in the hopes somebody would want to order some.  I doubt that will happen, but it can't hurt to try.  If you'd like to make one of your own, the pattern can be found HERE.  It is a paid pattern from EverLaughter.  Her patterns are nice.  I love the color of the yarn I used.  It is Red Heart and is called Black Light.

Oh, I forgot one of my Good Will find pics.  I got these vintage sheets for $2 each.  Love them!! They're wrinkly as I hadn't tossed them into the washer yet. 

Thanks for stopping by, and here's wishing you a wonderful weekend!!


  1. Hi Rita, I love the colorful skirt and what a cute idea to have a matching for both granddaughter and her doll:) Nice finds on goodwill.

  2. I never find any yarn when I visit Goodwill! I have a thing for ceramic rabbits too. I have three sitting on my floor in my kitchen. I'm sure your granddaughter will love her skirt.

  3. Hi Rita. Your Goodwill sounds like a good one - the one I've been to is nothing but junk, and the store always looks like a tornado hit it. That little skirt is really cute. :)

  4. I need to check out my Goodwill store. I finished a heart doily today and will put up pix on my blog tomorrow. LOVE your skirt and doll clothes! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
