I Heart Trish

My friend Trish is a thrift store junkie. She finds the best deals. She said if you're patient enough and are willing to browse and really dig, you can find some real treasures. Yesterday, she gave me a present! She got these at the Goodwill and they are brand new!





An insulated wine bag! There is a pouch in the front for my corkscrew. How awesome is that? I've been looking at some but haven't splurged. This one is much nicer than the ones I've seen. Also....





HOCKEY WINE CHARMS! Are these not the cutest? I have some wine charms, but I've never seen hockey ones. The Leafs home opener is in 60 days. (can you tell I'm anxious for hockey to start?) They'll be playing Ottawa, so I'll use these for good luck as we toast the Blue & White on a successful 2006-2007 season. GO LEAFS!

Trish rocks.

That wine tote looks so handy. At first I thought those wine charms were fancy stitch markers. Cute!

Hee hee... love that you love the Brady Bunch as well. Of course i've seen the movie. I have actually been toying with the idea of buying all the shows on DVD. i am so pathetic!

"Ohhhhhhhh! My nose"
"Something suddenly came up!"
Tiger!
Peter and Greg's double date!
George Glass!
The tiki and Vincent Price!
I could go on and on and on...

Ahh, haha, I forgot about Greg & Peter's double date. That was a good one! When I was young, I think the Hawaii episodes were my favorite. That giant spider on Peter! ewwww! And the "new Jan". Or when they boys tried to scare everyone by making the house all spooky and the light up skull almost gave Alice a heart attack when she came home from her date with Sam. Or the Dear Abby episode, Bobby trying to stretch himself, "Greg's smoking!", Romeo and Juliet, Davey Jones, "Pork chops and applesauce". See, I can go on and on too. Hee-hee! Now you've got me wanting to watch it again!
Did you see Christopher Knight on The Surreal Life? Which led to My Fair Brady. He's looking pretty good these days.

Those are pretty sweet but one thing is missing! Where's the SABRES Stuff? lol

Since they are getting rid of half their team I'm nervous it's going to be a rough year. DAMN salary cap. I can't understand it. You have a team like the Sabres who are "worried" about it but then you have the Rangers and Devils who always have money and always have players! Ek! Sorry just had to vent.

So, yeah. I'm here for the Quinoa dish! "where's the Quinoa?"

Blogger still giving you trouble? jw
