...ONE HUNDRED!

Q: How much 'STUFF' will a PIGGLY WIGGLY bag hold??

This is my ONE HUNDREDTH post (Can you believe it????????!!!!!!!!!!)

This P.W. bag was bought Saturday Morning for ONE HUNDRED cents at a 'Fill-a-Bag for a Buck' sale!

hmmmmmmmm..................................

I think that an appropriate EBOR of my good Stuff Karma is a dispersal of some 'Stuff' via a '100th Post Giveaway'! Have to stay on the positive side when it comes to Stuff Karma!! The giveaway package will be customized for the person chosen by the random number generator (ie: DH) - so, if you've seen anything you are particularly fond of in any of my posts... leave a comment. NO GUARANTEES, But "Hey, you never know!!". Sign up will end next Sunday (11-9) at midnight!!

Now, back to the Piggly Wiggly bag... (We don't have these stores in our area, so how they got them, I have NO IDEA - but aren't they cute?!)...

A: TOO MUCH!! ...just take a look...

~retro bibs w/ adorable graphics, green crochet Dress potholder, Disney fleece bag, random scarves, jersey knit drawstring gift bags (labelled MAGELLAN'S SANTA BARBARA??)...~Goebel Collector's club stationary pack (since they are ending production this year, will this be worth $$??), retro Xmas and misc. cards with envelopes, new pack of 'grape' dessert plates, metal recipe box FULL of vintage recipes...~Christmas GALORE... flocked!, retro!, JAPAN corsages!, floral picks!, garland, Swedish wooden ornament, vintage felt stocking in original package, tin cookie cutter, even a purple ornament for my Dining room Aluminum Xmas Tree (done in all orange~purple~lime green ornaments!)...~Grapes, eyeglass advertising key chain, my First Headvase (yes, heavily damaged, but...), Retro Holt Howard mug and tipsy snowman candle climber, bag of vintage wooden checkers and a pineapple dish (hmmm... the "Hawaiian Themed Porch '09 " maybe?!) and a vintage crepe fold out fan...

*BUT WAIT, There's more..!*
~YES! a few pieces of HAEGER - not cleaned up yet in this photo, but they are 'soaking' as I type. Most of these shapes I have, but I couldn't just leave them there!! Anybody out there like matte white pottery? ;-) ...
*The bag is getting mighty heavy at this point*
~Just when I was ready to call it quits, and sure that the bag would hold no more, I spot this piece of yellow fabric. Have to inspect... An apron? No too long... A retro wrap around skirt! I could get that into my bag! As I was rolling this 'brand new - never worn' gem of fabric to squeeze it in, I noticed a tag... VERA! The blue silky scarf with milk wagon and jugs is also a VERA!
So, there's the answer!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
When I was unpacking from our anniversary journey, I came across a VERA scarf that I had picked up on the drive from the airport to the hotel ...Yes, we just happened to stop for lunch in a small town that had a restaurant next to a Thrift ;-) !! Look at the colors of it - perfect match to the colors of my recent china find!! How cool is that?! ...yes, I'm easily amused.

Well, I'm leaving a comment, but not because I want to win your giveaway. Because you're always generous with me anyway, ya know. But, I had to leave a comment about the Matte White Pottery comment.....;o) That bag held a ton! I always feel sort of bad when they tell me to "Fill a bag or a box" because I really don't think they have any idea HOW MUCH I can stuff in there. I put little things in the pottery, wrap scarves and such around the pottery, etc. Oh, a bag can hold a LOT! You done good! Happy 100th!

The only time I ever look at clothes at sales is when it's fill a bag day. I don't care what Jack ruins if I stuffed it into a bag for a dollar. LOL
