Thrifty Wednesdays...

Eeek sorry I am late!  It was a busy day of enjoying the wonderful weather yesterday.  I made it to the thrift store late yesterday and I will tell you really benefits to be the first one there!  There were a lot more people and a lot less stuff at 4pm then at 9:30 am!  I found some great shirts for my husband.  Two were from Abercrombie and Fitch and the other was from Aeropostale...and I only paid $1 each!  Also I found these...

What a terrible picture!  They are about 18 inches long each and I have them hanging in my kitchen.  I looove them!

Also I have been wanting to dye eggs naturally for awhile now but finally got around to it this year.  They didn't turn out as well as I would have liked but they still look much better then that boxed stuff!

Starting from the left I used old coffee, grape juice, and boiled frozen spinach,  the spinach didn't come out theway I hoped it would.  I think fresh would probably work a lot better.  I mixed 2 tbsp. of vinegar in each jar and let them sit over night.  Now the eggs developed this wierd waxy build up on the outside.  I wiped it off of one of the eggs in the middle of it soaking and it turned out a lot better so I think I will do it to all of them next year.

See the dark purple one in the back?  That is the one I wiped off.  It turned out really nice...the other ones kind of splotchy, and the spinach ones are barely colored.  I guess this is something I will just perfect over the years :)  Hope you all had a great Easter!
