I realize this included spending money but before you try to shake your finger at me, we
decided that minor thrifting would be acceptable, as long as you don't leave the store spending more than $10.
So, yesterday I found a small cast iron skillet for frying eggs, wooden
handled whisk and my favorite, this sweater coat...all for less than $6. Isn't the
pattern cool? It's doesn't even look like it had ever been worn, the yarn is smooth with
no piling. My husband thinks the tiny skillet is silly but sometimes just one fried egg
is all I need!

  6. I don't think thrifting should count because of the effort involved. It takes time to go through all the junk to find fabulous things. It's almost like a part-time job. Hehehe

  10. Oooo I love the sweater! And I remember hearing something about a similar small cast iron skillet. Maybe from a movie ... I don't recall, but I think one egg is (sometimes) just enough.
