My Crocheted “Find” for the Day!

Gift…

Sometimes I just look and look and never find a thing on my jaunts to my thrift stores or peddler’s malls… We have about 5 that we frequent… I might be looking for something in particular or just discover something that catches my eye  … I do try to have a place for the item… a use for the item… and then there’s those moments of nostalgia  that hits… reminding me of someone… an event… or an occasion…

Yesterday was a day for “Dixie Peddlers Mall”… Since it is booth rental place… sometimes the prices are way out of my budget  … My husband says, “You mean you didn’t get it for nothing!”…ha, ha!…

I am definitely the bargain hound… I look and look as I said… and all of a sudden it will be there!…My item…My price!

I’m on the lookout right now for Paris items  … I’m going to do my small bathroom in this theme due to the cutest wallpaper I found… Pink, Black and some Beige is going to be the color theme… I’ve already found a picture  and will be painting one myself to place in it…

No luck yesterday with my watchful eye finding anything for this…

But…

As I was looking through a person’s booth I noticed some pot holders and pads … some were crocheted … which means they were handmade… One caught my eye…my “watchful” eye … and the price was certainly right… 77 cents… but, no look again “watchful” eye… TODAY… everything is 50% OFF… My little find will now be 39 cents… It’s mine!… I almost want to shout!… Colors of the rainbow…light greens… lavender… yellows… pinks… blues… Looking different as you turn it from one side to the other… I imagine a lady with her threads… her needles … sitting and making this item… maybe daydreaming… maybe thinking of her family… probably with a smile on her face…

So with a few bars of Dove Soap for 50 cents… That’s a good deal!… and my homemade crocheted hot pad… which by the way… reminded me of my Mom and her crocheting so many things  … I left a happy person … As you see… it’s not the find exactly… it’s the hunt that I love so much!…
