We drove by a couple of yard sales but didn't see anything worth stopping for, so we went to our favorite place, the Goodwill Stores. I didn't have a whole lot of luck this week in locating curtain rods that I liked, but I did find the following items. . .
This book by Nicholas Sparks. He's the author that wrote the book turned into the wonderful tearjerker movie "The Notebook". If you want a super romantic, make you cry out loud movie; this is the one.
If you look over to the sidebar on the right at my list of books read for 2009 you will see that I've already read two of his books this year. At First Sight and The Wedding. They were good books, a bit too "happily ever after" but still good. I'll let you know how this one is. It's a hardbound copy and was only 95 cents.
I also found a pair of pink sandals. These were $4.25 but they were brand new, still had the tag on them and they're Cherokee sandals. I'm wearing one to show the sequined detail, (don't look at my unpedicured toes) :-(
I left the other sandal without my foot in it so you could see the detail on the all leather sole. They're really pretty, don't you think? I love pink!
I've also started collecting a new thing. I have a sensitivity to almost all metals, so I can't wear any costume jewelry that's made out of any metals. Sometimes I can wear things that are nickel-free, but sometimes I can't. I have gold earrings I can wear but I've never had pretty necklaces. So my sister came up with this great idea of collecting charms that I like and putting them on black satin rope.
The one below is the first one I've done. I purchased the charm new at Wal-mart for $2.97 and a spool of the rope for the same price. So now I'm going to search when I go to Goodwill's for pretty charms that I can string and use as necklaces. Good idea right?
