A Giveaway and some Thrift Shop Finds

Since I will never stitch the 'spring' chart again and it was something that I found in a closeout basket, I thought maybe someone else would like to stitch this. The chart is a bit beat up, it is how I bought it, but the inside is intact and readable.

If you are interested leave me your name and e-mail addy in this comment section and I will pull names on Monday, April 26th.
Below is a closeup of what the chart looks like stitched, you can order buttons for this piece, if you wish.
Found these little watering cans at a thrift shop.
This one is stamped made in Holland.
This one says made in England. I love them!
I found this at a Habitat for Humanity thrift shop along with some books. This will do nicely, I hope, with my Ikebana flower arranging.
Tomorrow I am heading out to the Panhandle of Florida for a stitcher's beach retreat for the weekend, so I will not be around for a few days. Will catch up when I return on Sunday evening.

Well off to finish packing - have a good day ---------- Roberta

Lovely thrift store finds! Don't put me in for the drawing though, I don't need any more charts, lol, though it is lovely!

Love your finds!

Would love to provide a home for the Spring row. I am hoping to do a Bent Creek row for each season, this would make a great start! Please include me in your giveaway.

Fun thrifty finds! I have to head over to our Habitat store - I keep forgetting about that place.

Wish I had time to do some thrift-store browsing but I never seem to. Your backyard is looking great Roberta - love the terrace look you added and your plants are lovely. It took me forever to finish Sanctuary but of course it languished here and there LOL. I'll be watching to see if you meet your May goal! Good luck!

Just wanted to drop by and say hello, but don't need a chart right now! Trying to get through the projects I've lined up already.
