Fun post!

I have been looking for a comfy chair for the hobby room so I can sit and stitch if Jack is model building.  We stopped at a flea market Friday and I found a chair for five dollars.  Can you believe it?  All totaled our purchases were eight dollars.  A mechanic opened the store called Agape and all profits go to help low income folks pay for car repairs.  pretty neat I think.  Here are my treasures.

What do you think of my tie backs in the kitchen?  I found the pattern on Ravelry for the little tomatoes and added a chain crochet bit and done!

Friday night rain was moving in and I thought the clouds at sunset were pretty.  Don't you agree?

And here is my Names of Jesus piece.  I am really enjoying it and like all the greens.  I have at least two more to do for some folks.

Thanks for coming to visit.  Blessings and huggles.

Nice chair! And what a bargain too! Love the teacup and saucer and the pen holder! The tomato tiebacks are wonderful! Your WIP looks great too!

The chair looks really comfortable and I am sure you will get a lot of use out of it. You sure found some good bargains...eight dollars!!! The tie backs are would be fun to have different seasonal tie backs or one's for the holidays. The sky is lovely and calming.

Good for you on the great bargains and the tomatoes are not only functional but beautiful. I love that "Name of Jesus" design. I've stitched one but haven't finished it yet.

WOW! That was a bargain for sure :) I think that's a great thing that man is doing. Never would have thought of that.

Your project is coming along nicely and I love all the different greens you are using :)
