I am very excited to announce to you a wonderful and FUN thrifty link up party happening each Friday, originating out of the great state of Michigan, but you are encouraged to join from the comfort of your own home or favorite thrifting haunt.
Diann is a wonderful person, great mom and happily married
(today is her anniversary) woman who is a lot of fun to visit and is extremely generous as well.
Let me tell you how to find Diann and link up.
Go to The Thrifty Groove.
Because I want to play along, I am going to share with you somewhat of a mystery item I happened to find.
Do you know what it is? It fits in the palm of your hand, well a large hand. It is made of wood and most often used in a kitchen.
Here is another view.
Between the 2 halves is a marble. Not shown, on the back is a slit where it can be hung on a wall or from a counter front.
I wish I had a picture of it in use, but you’ll have to come back and remind me to take another photo.
It is a handmade Amish towel holder and I was fortunate to find it new, in gift box, at a church sale last spring. Because none of the church ladies knew what it was I got it for 50 cents.
I get a lot of things that way – when no one knows what they are or what they are for.
More snow is predicted for Wisconsin this afternoon but there is a huge indoor rummage sale going on in Green Bay. I don’t think I will get there, but it is a sign that the season is beginning.
How are things in your area?
Please go visit Diann and Troy and wish them a Happy Anniversary!
(Troy is a great guy too – visit him at http://i-refuse-to-recede.blogspot.com/ )
