Thrift Store Rescue!

Another cute bag rescued from the thrift store.  I wash these and give them to new members in our knit and crochet for charity group for their projects.

Yikes! I didn’t notice it was reversible with a nice pocket for row counter, stitch markers, etc.

 

Welcome Renee!

Thrift Store Rescue!

 

This cute bag was in its last week at the thrift store.  Destined to become a rag. ☹️😟

Now it has be rescued, washed and given to the newest member of our knit and crochet group to hold her latest project.

One of these hats for disadvantaged children this fall!

Welcome Karen!

Little Free Library

 

Who did I happen to see this last week at the Little Free Library at the end of the parking lot?

An elderly man  neighborhood who walks over to get his books.  He told me he never went to the regular library any more.

Someone walking their dog, there are dog treats in our little free library.

And our mail delivery person!

All the cookbooks and I’ve put in there now gone. I’m going to add this one today.

This is a rescue cookbook from the thrift store. I never cook anything out of these books I just sit and read them over and over, they are like good friends.

Need to introduce my friends to others right?

 

Thrift Store Rescue!

A small food bank run by a local church near me has an even smaller free library for the families and homeless people it serves.

No children’s books!?!  Gotta fix that!  Children need books to nourish their minds   For less than $15.00 these books will fill the lower shelf of the small library for those kids!

 

Thrift Store Rescue and Henry #1

This book was rescued from the thrift store.  It has brought back memories of the stories my Mom used to tell about her family losing everything.  Possessions  and farm.  And her journey to and life in an internment camp.  My friend Masami Nonaka has also shared his memories of camp as a small child here.

The main character is Henry and I just realized that one of the main characters in this crazy Netflix series I am watching is also named Henry.  Coincidence?  I think not.  I have been looking at litters of rescue puppies and have a feeling I found my puppy name!

This is a picture from the book.  Each family was assigned a number and each member of the family wore a tag until they reached the internment camp.

 

Thrift Store Rescue and Little Free Library

One of my favorite things to rescue from the thrift store is cookbooks. I read them like other people read books but I don’t ever cook anything out of them. I have quite a stack of books.

Matthew over at his little free library gave me the idea of putting some cookbooks into the little free library in the parking lot at my work. Cookbooks are popular reads in their library.  Mathew’s Little Free Library
