Thrift Store Rescue

My sister used to collect butterflies.  This bag caught my eye when I stopped at the thrift store to look for knitting needles for our knit for charity group.  Instant smile!  Ran it through the washer and I am going to use it to cart my lunch to work every day.  Hey my sister used to frequent thrift stores too.  She would be happy with this find.

Found some perfectly good knitting needles too!  Yippee!

My sister love butterflies.  I bought myself a membership to the Butterfly Pavilion here in Colorado.  Hang out with live butterflies! The gift shop had these neat little butterfly trinkets.

They had these cute little bumblebees too.

I needed something to put them in,  I wanted to see them every day to just keep my sister close.  I planned I’m looking for a fancy little bowl somewhere but my sister was so thrifty I tried to thrift store first.  Here was the perfect little glass butterfly dish which I rescued from the thrift store for pennies.  My sister would’ve been pleased!

So these little trinkets are on my desk at work to just put a smile on my face when I need it.
