Hawaiian Parrots on my patio

Hello: Happy Friday! Here I am in a Hawaiian dress I found for $4.99 at Value Village.
I also found the huge delightful parrot & shell necklace for $5.99 (That is more than I usually pay, but lately in thrifts and online they usually start out at about $15.00 so I just "Told myself" I was getting a deal.) "OH WHAT'S THAT IN THE CHAIR ON THE RIGHT??
OMG!! It's another one of those bags... Price was $2.00 and I thought it was hilarious I found a second one.

Remember the first one I found last month?

"Ohhhh the EXCITEMENT"

I am thrilled and Jersey doesn't seem to know what the hecks so exciting!!
I wonder if I will find another....


 I suppose a belt would look good with this dress trouble is I was in a huge rush to take these pics before Mr. Coco got off work.

 *Kiss Kiss*

Awesome starfish shoes!
$1.00 at a Liquidation outlet

The Parrot necklace

 I imagine this is one of Vanessa's from  Two Squirrels friends!
He has been hanging out in my Maple tree spying on me the past couple days. He likes to run along our fence and eat nuts all day long. He also has staring contests with Jersey my Boxer dog.
 I named him Acorn...

Have a delightful Weekend

    1. These bags were made from bleach bottles and yarn. I have seen a few craft books on ebay with the instructions on how to make them.
      Apparently is was a craft craze of the 60s.
