Inspired by…the thrift store find.

The thrift store find is always very special. It is random. It is unexpected. It is always a bargain!

Look what I found on my recent visit to the Giro on Gabriola Island….

The Crazy Daisy Winder!

I guarantee I am showing my age by my excitement at this great thrift store find, but
at 25 cents how can one possibly go wrong.

For those who were not up late as a teenager watching infomercials…just look what I can create with this little gadget.

All joking aside, I do have great plans for this little wonder. I am thinking a large cowl neck scarf….will keep you posted!

Keep your eyes wide open for all these other thrift store finds :

Material, knitting wool and needles

Vintage buttons

Old books and paper for journal and collage paper.I look for maps and dictionaries.Music sheets, sewing patterns are fun too

Frames and matting.

Oh my!

Someone may have got a wee bit carried away…….
