Been Thrifting, no. 6 | Spring Dream

I've had flower press on the "to purchase" list, lurking at the back of my head, since the Spring equinox.  So, imagine my delight when I found just such a press at Goodwill for $2.  Wolfman took it from me, inspected it, asked, "How much?," and upon hearing the answer said, "Good.  It'd cost just that to make one."  He talks like this sometimes, and the truth is that I like him when he's a little gruff and incredulous.  Also found two paper backs by two authors I'm keen on (Gaiman and Kingsolver), a little jewelry-catcher to be kept at the kitchen sink, and a wall-hanging that I'd left, because it was a whopping $3 (what?!  Why did this seem like too much to me?!), but kept returning to over and again to pick up, touch, look upon.  It's a dreamy little scene, in'it?  The hatted, aproned woman and her laundry against a soft blue sky.  I ended up snatching it up at the last minute, along with a bright yellow linen pencil skirt and black blazer, not pictured.
