Thrift Store Finds

I went to the Thrift Store today. By myself (yay!!~~ Me time~~)  I'm always looking for cool coffee cups, cuz we seem to lose half of ours (I need to make a "Rule~ None of my nice coffee cups can go to work w/ the hubby"~ grr...). Or they get broken. I saw some pretty cool ones a few weeks ago, but I never got them. Now they are gone. (Of course.) I saw these today, and got them. Only a buck each. There's four. A whole "set". They don't match my white plates. But, I am okay with it. (I want a new set of plates anyway...Half of those were also broken.)

And two roosters for my kitchen. :D  I saw the white-ish one first. Picked it up, put it down. Walked around more. Saw the black tailed one... Picked it up...  Put it down. Ended up getting both of them. :P

And, I did the same thing with this cat. The cat towards the back is one I got a few weeks ago (same Thrift store).  I guess I'm collecting cats now.  ? I just thought they were cute. I was actually in line to pay, and I went back to get this cat. :P  I'm so incdecisive. :/  It would have been gone if I had gone back even tomorrow...

I didn't get these at the Thrift store. But I thought they were so cute. (And, I want to make one... :D)  I NEED an Edgerydoo!! I bought a towel a couple months ago to make Mimi's towel topper. Tried to poke holes in it myself. Did not work. :(    I got these at the "Local Yarn Store."

Have you tried "poking" with a steel hook . . .or an ice pick . . or a bamboo skewer? I'll bet the smallest steel hook you have would work great . . I know I am aalways sticking my steel hooks through clothing when I use them . .so a towel should be "stickable."

Haha...those roosters and cats look happy in their new home. I'd pick the cat decors too, for sure ;)
Those towels look pretty...and your oven looks nice! I already got rid of my oven range, since its not working well anymore after almost two decades of use, and used up much electricity.

Hi Paula, Susan, and Mimi. :) Paula, I am going to try either a tool I bought to poke through hard surfaces (?? can't remember the name of it ??), or the tiny steel hooks. I looked at an Edgerydoo online; and all it is is what looks like the same tool I already have, and the template to space the holes... :/
