Goodwill Finds and 2 Giveaways

Goodwill jumpsuits

I pressed Publish on a witty enjoyable post and something went wrong.  I don’t want to write it all again, so look at that picture of two polyester jumpsuits from Goodwill, still with their original new tags on them, and imagine a humorous conversation between me and a friend who disagreed with my decision to buy them for $3 each.

I entered two giveaways on blogs I regularly read.  First, Megan Nielsen is giving away a beautiful green dress she made — yes, an entire handmade shantung dress.  Second, Brown Paper Packages has a 100th Post commemoration giveaway of lots of flannel scraps, also very cool.  Sometimes I skip giveaways because the chances of winning can be small and the prizes are sometimes not up my alley — what would I do with a felted wool crochet owl knick-knack?  These are both things I would really like and oh boy oh boy do I hope I win.

    Your friend was wrong. Those are magnificent. Good purchase.

    Ha, they are like a few one piece outfits I did (only more a could-be-worn- while -teaching style than these) at your age, but I got tired of peeling them to use the bathroom in the teacher lounge, when time was of the essence to get back to the classroom
