I *Heart* Japan





Wow!!! I had such A blast having our exchange student! Words cant even describe the relationships we built, Im so happy, and so sad to see him go! That was one of the best experiences in my life & I am very grateful. One day I hope to go to Japan & tutor English and experience the amazing culture in real life. The kids had so much fun too, just a great 3 weeks, better than I could have ever imagined. We were such a bunch of wet rags by the time the students had to leave!

So whats the cure for such a sad/happy goodbye??? Thrifting of course!

Found a bunch of vintage zippers, notions, and trim. A cute pair of crocheted dress trivets.
3 great pieces of fabric,
and this really fun aqua/turquiose(is that how you spell it??) letter holder, & a bunch of transfers.
For some reason I absolutly cannot sew or make stuff if my house is a pig sty, so i had to somewhat organize it a bit after all the company. After a major housecleaning,thats not nearly complete, I had a chance to make some new shop goodies. This altered clipboard & the little wool felt cell phone cozy. Now to make my way through the cluttered maze to find an ironing board is priority! I Must organize something this weekend so I can start dreaming up of all my Christmas creations to come...scary I know!

Oh how I miss thrifting in your neck of the woods! Loving where we're living, but the thrifting trips are definitely not as rewarding (sob!).
