Okay so it's actually Small Business Saturday. And I haven't done a thrifty finds thing in a while. So here you go. :)
A friend of mine is getting married today.
I am making her cake. (Pics coming in a few days.)
I ran out of rum flavoring, and had to dash to the store for more; and I decided I had to stop in the Goodwill store next door and see what was left after Black Friday.
Lucky for me, there were some things still to be had!
So that is the extent of my Thanksgiving weekend shopping.
Now I have to get back to that cake!!

Coming soon to my Etsy shop: scrappy textile cuff bracelets.
I go the inspiration from a bag of very old cuffs and ruffles off of very old blouses a friend gave me. As well as needing something to do with torn and tattered hankys, pillowcases, etc. etc. that I never throw away.
All the fabrics used on this cuff are basically rags. Tea dyed, ripped, and sewn into roses. I even used the strings leftover from the tearing and shredding. I finished it with beads from old broken necklaces, and of course, buttons. As well as lace trim scraps.
I can't believe Thanksgiving is in one week! I can't wait. What better than cooking all day, hanging out with family, and then stuffing ourselves with delicious home cooking?!
Have a beautifully inspired day, lovely readers!
