Snow and Thrift Store finds....

Good Morning Everyone!
It's snowing here in Wisconsin!
This is what the weather looks like
for the rest of the day here....

Though it is pretty...
I "HATE" driving in this kind
of weather.
I work second shift, 2pm to 10pm.
Driving home at that time of the
night, stresses me out!

Oh well, I can't change the weather...
but I can show you what I
found thrifting yesterday.

I found these metal baskets.
There  were 3 of them bundled
together for $2.99.
I don't know what I'm going to
do with them yet, I just thought
they were cool!
They had these hooks with them.
Anyone know what they were used for?
I found this roll of metal ribbon
for $1.29.
Thought it was different.
I'm sure I will find something to do with it, Lol!
6 rolls of twine for $2.99.  Brand new still
in the package.
This small coffee pot for $1.99.
I Love to paint snowmen on these.
I got 4 of these old saws for $2.99 each.
I also Love to paint on these.
And last But not least....
My sister found me this box of skates
a week ago at a thrift store near her.
My favorite thing is ice skates.
That's how I got the name of my Blog,
The Primitive Skate.
I use them in arrangements,
I paint on them, and numerous
other things.
I hope you enjoyed my finds.
I will be back soon with some makeovers!

A suprise in the mail....

I've been going through a few
rough patches this past month.

I was on my way out the door to
go to work on  a gloomy day....
when my son came running up to
the house with the mail and told me
I had a package.
I didn't order anything...
I wasn't expecting anything...

When I seen the package  was from
Linda of  Parkers Paradise
I opened it (okay, I tore it open)
To find these wonderful pillow tucks.

Oh my Goodness....
What a suprise!
so much Linda!
You lifted my Spirits & I had
a better day at work.
And my son pointed out the
one that says "Never Give Up".
How did you know that's just
what I needed??
I will always remember your
kind gesture.
Thank You my Friend!!!!
