Thrift Thursday - As if I needed a new craft.

So, I went to Goodwill the other day just to drop some stuff off. I had no intention of buying anything but when I put my donations on the counter I glanced in the jewelry case and saw something with a bird on a branch. I've got a thing for birds on branches. Also, it had some ladybugs. I like ladybugs too. The lady behind the counter pulled it out and let me hold it. On even further inspection I realized it was totally made by hand:

Using an eyeglass lens! What a great idea! The lady said I could have it for half price since I brought stuff in. I think $2.50 is great deal for a handmade one-of-a-kind, so I bought it. Plus, it inspired me to come home and bust apart my old broken glasses and make some of my own. They're drying right now. I'll show you tomorrow.

These are all very cute. Since you like thrift shopping and remaking, I bet you would enjoy Swap-o-rama-rama. I'm told by one of the organizers that it is really kid friendly - in Venice on June 28th.

PS I love your plush monsters in your shop.
