Found It Friday

First, a rant.  I went to my old favorite, Goodwill.  Remember how I was worried that I was just down right cheap?  Well, I'm convinced that it is not me -- it's them. 

Case in point.  Beach towel -- $7?
Small Table Runner -- $13?
"Coach inspired" small clutch (worn, very.  With stain on the side and rip on inside of the dirty lining) -- $70

I can buy a brand new Coach bag for around $100. {We live next to the Coach outlet} :)
And at the very least a new knock off for that much.

I left with a picture frame ($4) and 2 small pillows ($3 each) (overpaid -- they are U-G-L-Y)

I'll be going to San Suchi tomorrow. 

But back to Found it Friday....
I have had this picture saved for a while now.  It's a Land Of Nod inspired floor cushion from Living with Punks.  I'm debating---make 2 one red and one green (with the Mario M and Luigi L of course) or make just one with red on one side and green on the other.  OR how cool would it be if I can find some old tshirts to cut up and have a picture of Yoshi on the front of one! Yea.  I don't know.  I think I just need to make it and be done.

Cute huh?  I saw these a while ago on  But this one is done
by Elizabeth over at Ucreate w/ Kids.  She offers a tutorial too!

Isn't that pretty!  It's over at Tatertots and Jello!

Oh and here is Joshua in his Wizard of Oz shirt.  I know it's not a costume, but oh well.  Not the best thing I've ever made. But it works.  And slightly funny.

Kind of a goofy picture of him :)  But oh well.  The back of the shirt says OZ underneath the collar. 

And tonight (I should be getting ready to leave not blogging) well this afternoon he will be wearing his cheap $12 store bought at Wal-Mart (YUCK) ugly Darth V. costume.  Reason: Joshua doesn't like candy.  He doesn't like trick or treating.  And he will not use the costume during the year to randomly dress up.  ?  I love them all.  But he doesn't.  And it has taken me 7 years to figure out that spending a lot of money/time is useless.  So for an hour he will wear his cheap-O. :)
