Well, I am finally out of school. Now the job-hunt begins, that and real life. I got some time to go to the thrift store today. I needed some new tank-tops. I did not find any that suited me, however I found some very nice tupperwear.

I got a pitcher with the button-lid thingy. My parents have had one for years, and I found one that is eerily similar. I also got a nice cereal storage box. I think I will use the cereal box for chips or flour. I like tupperwear, but I really do not have the money to buy it new. The pitcher is a nice addition because we had one die this winter due to using it as a plaster mixing container.

I also got a nifty plate. I do not subscribe to a need to have fine china, in fact I do not subscribe to a need to have matching dishes. My dishes coordinate but they do not match; they are all blue and white from varying sources. The new plate declares itself to be about "Pennsylvania Dutch Land" and has kitchy sayings such as "A plump wife and a big barn never did a man any harm". It was too unique to pass up.

I will also be getting rid of things this week. I've got a pile of dresses that I'm passing on to a friend. If they fit her, they're hers.

I also looked up some links on rag rugs, they look like fun. I've been giving my rag collection a work-out cleaning the house the past week. I'm finally caught up to where I want to be in anal-retentive cleanliness. Speaking of which, I have onion bags to crochet. I think I'll go do that while watching some netflix. Pics to come.
