Thrifty Thursday #20

     Hard to believe it's Thursday again- even harder to believe that it's June 7th!
     Here are my treasures for the week, thanks to my favorite thrift store:

 I found this beautiful crocheted lap blanket for $1! I couldn't believe the price- somebody spent a lot of time making this blanket. I felt it needed a good home. 

 I also found these wooden utensils. I thought I'd use the forks and discard the knives- imagine my surprise when I opened the package and saw that they are connected and spread open like this! I bought all ten packs for a quarter each.
Sounds like a silly purchase, huh? But it's not, actually. My church has a scrap booking group that I teach and our next project is going to be a recipe themed book. I thought these things would look delightful attached to the front of the books! 
As I was leaving, I noticed that there was a box of books labeled "Free." Naturally, I stopped to paw through and see what there was. I found these three books with dust jackets which I promptly removed. I love the colors! I'm actually thinking that the covers of these books would probably make cute covers for the recipe scrapbooks. 

Thank you for stopping by and God bless.
