Before I share the visit I had from my friend Kathy, I want to wish
all my loyal friends, readers, and followers who live in Canada, a Happy Thanksgiving.
Right before Labor Day (first Monday in September) my friend Kathy visited and wanted to go shopping. She had several stores she wanted to visit and I was more than willing to put aside my clean-up efforts in my basement long enough to spend some time with her and catch up on everything that has been happening in both our lives.
The first place we visited was Tuesday Morning.
Halloween was in full bloom, even back then. I even saw some Thanksgiving and Christmas offerings, too.
I have no idea what Kathy was saying, but I'm sure it was something she wanted me to see.
At that time, I was in full "Back to School" mode, so took this photo, thinking I might buy this puzzle to use in my journal I hadn't started yet. Some of you may remember I had misplaced the altered book I had originally planned to use.
Of course, as much as I wanted to find bargains, I only got a couple.
The large napkins (or serviettes) were nearly $5.00, not a bargain, but I gave half of them to Kathy so she could use them in her art. The 6 X 6 inch paper was from Graphic 45, and it also was not a bargain. I've yet to use any of it. I also haven't opened the six small stamps I bought which I thought WAS a bargain. I actually bought these six stamps for the key and the clock.
The other napkins were a much better bargain, and I also shared them with Kathy. I can't wait to use this one, because I love the tropical feel. As I was removing the large stamp from the bag, the "image" that was taped to the front came off and stuck to the inside of the bag.
Although we stopped two other places, I failed to take any more photos. And since I didn't buy anything of relevance, or art related, I didn't take any photos, either.
Thanks for sharing this Halloween inspired time I spent with my friend Kathy. I appreciate the time you took to visit and go shopping with me. And let's remember our Canadian friends on their Thanksgiving, please.
