Thrift Share Giveaway and Project Simplify Hot Spot #4

It is that time of week to join Apron Thrift Girl for Thrift Share Monday and, as I have for the past couple of weeks, I will be hosting a giveaway for a previously thrifted find.  Congratulations to Lisanne, as the only commenter on last week's post she is the sole winner of both lots of the vintage paper travel games!  And without further ado, here is the thrifted item looking for a new home this week - an unopened vintage mushroom and ladybug latch pillow kit from Bucilla.  If you are interested in winning this bit of crafty vintage goodness please leave a comment on this post by midnight EST on Friday, April 1st and I will draw a winner over the weekend.

Don't you just love that 1970's flair?

Simple Mom announced hot spot #4 for Project Simplify today - the kitchen.  I've focused periodic efforts over the last couple of months on the kitchen, so there isn't as much work to be done here as there has been in the past.  That being said, there is still plenty of work to be done and I look forward to tackling some of the cabinets and drawers that I've been studiously ignoring.  As Running Man accurately observed, I have a fair amount of aspirational clutter lurking in my kitchen that needs to find a new home where it will be actually used.

I'll be working on both this week's hot spot while continuing to plug away on last week's (kid clothes, books, toys, etc.) and I look forward to sharing my results throughout the week.  I am linking up to Thrift Share Monday - come on over and join us!

  1. Per your quote, if I *can't* organize my kitchen, that means I don't have to organize anything else, right? Right? Hello?? Is this thing on??

  2. How about if I can organize my kitchen I don't have to organize anything else? Now there's a thought...

    My friend Lynn posted this on my FB page and I thought it was a great thing to share:

    "I couldn't post a comment on your blog page- but one good tip my mom shared- put all your cooking utensils in a box and remove one at a time as you need them- then, after a week or two- the things you never use, give away- you can only use so many spatulas at once, ya know? those things seem to multiply..."

    What a great idea - thanks for passing it along, Lynn!

  3. Hi Brittany

    I love your profile blurb...I can relate to parts of it only to well.

    Thanks for your very kind comment about our house. Unfortunately we sold it a year ago and are now working on turning an old 1930's corner shop into our "new" home. We still all miss the one in pic but this one is slowly beginning to feel more like home.

    My youngest daughter would love the mushroom pillow kit x
