Want to teach your children responsibility and how to care for themselves? Give them chores, such as doing the dinner dishes. Want to have a large portion of your drinking glasses broken? Give them chores, such as doing the dinner dishes! 🙂
This cupboard was FULL of drinking glasses at one time. Notice the empty space?
While I was at the thrift store Thursday I noticed 3 drinking glasses just like the ones I had (Top right in this photo) so I put them in my basket. THEN I got to thinking that I’d like the glasses in MY cupboard to be all different. So I decided to pick up other glasses that don’t match what I have. I like the idea of having glasses all shapes and sizes. As long as they are clear glass I’m going to add them!
Then I also hit the linens jackpot. I found an off white lace table cloth, a hand embroidered dresser scarf and a large (looks like linen) table cloth that is white with a light blue stitching in it. I think I’m going to over dye the white and light blue cloth with a teal blue dye. Just to see what it’ll look like. I’ll let you know!
I also found four small glasses for my friend Allan. He collects glassware with silver rims. I think he’s worth $1.80! :) What do you look for when you go thrifting?
