I have not seemed to have found much time to blog this week, so I will just combine several things I've been doing into one post.
There were not many yard sales this past weekend with it being so close to the 4th of the July. Instead, we shopped at our local antique mall and we had fun walking through it.
I bought 3 things, and they were almost yard sale prices anyway.
a painted tray, and 2 Pyrex dishes. $12 for all.
I've been using a few of the Pyrex refrigerator dishes and really like them for storing leftovers. The other baking dish is about 4 x 8, I used it last night to bake 1/2 a recipe of cornbread. And tonight, I baked 1/2 of a small yellow cake. Both times, I used the toaster oven to save on electricity and to not heat up the kitchen too much. Nina has been doing lots of sprucing up around her home while she was on maternity leave. She had these pillows but either they did not match the rooms she was using them in or she just did not like them.
She found some fabric she did like at Hobby Lobby, I made new covers and reused the stuffing from some of the old pillows.
They look pretty on my blue bed but they have gone to Nina's. I am sure they look pretty wherever she put them too.
Family Dollar had a $5 off $25 purchase coupon in last weeks sale paper. I used it to stock up on our favorite toilet paper - Charmin Basic - it is soft enough and strong enough without going overboard on either quality.
Jimmy helped me can more jalapenos last night, 18 jars more! He was a huge help as he did all the pepper slicing. Some of the peppers are from my garden and some are from my brother.
