Messiness and thrift finds

I really have no idea where my time goes. I thought with John home during the days, that this summer would be such a productive one for me. Instead, I'm finding myself under piles of laundry, dishes, fabric, and crumbs. You'd think that since my house is such a mess that we would have been doing some fun things during the day too. Not the case. So seriously, where is my time going? Probably to thrifting and computer time. And I'm not kidding when I say my house is a mess. Here's what my sewing room looks like right now.
Did I mention that this is also our dining room???? I did finally manage to update my etsy shop with some things and packaged up items I sold on eBay. What a joy that was.

Anyway, hopefully I'll be able to make a dent in it this week. Hopefully. I have had some success thrifting lately. Probably because I can do it uninterrupted. I found all these things last week. Two very cute Alice in Wonderland mugs, for a total for .60.
This very cute pink platter and french gravy boat. I couldn't resist them.
And one of my favorite finds, this tablecloth. Oooh, it wants to be a bag so badly. Maybe for the fall.


And just a reminder that today is the last day for the challenge. So go ahead and add your photos. There's already over 200 items added not including things Karyn and I did. Wowzers, you guys rock!

When you figure out how to cut down the laundry pile, let me know. I think I may meet my end one day beneath the avalanche.

Well all of it is good stuff, but I'm straining my eyeballs to peer at the gravy boat! Is that a rooster or something on it?

Those mugs, OMG! Wonderful. And the gravy boat is lovely. My craft space looks about like yours right now... except it's in the bedroom and I literally have to move everything off the bed to go to sleep:-(

Ah ...the "things to do list". Never goes away. And when you get a moment, it goes to something else.

Well, I'm glad I'm not the only one not getting much done this summer. And I don't have an excuse. None whatsoever. Except for the fact that it's much nicer out in the sunshine than inside in the messy craft room.
