Still Not Martha

I went to Dollar Tree yesterday because I needed
poster board for my garage sale signs.
While I was there I looked around at
the new school supplies.

I found this magnetic holder
that was designed to put inside a locker.
The back has two pretty strong magnets.
I used some scrapbook paper and ribbon
to pretty it up.
And now I have it hung
on the side of my refrigerator.
It holds my notebook and pen
for my grocery lists.

Still not Martha.
But I like it just fine for $1.00!

I'm linking up to
And
And
And
At Under the Table and Dreaming.


You should too!

Did you know that your name was HOLLY? I wasn't sure if you got the memo?!?!?!

Your 'cousin' Martha will be proud as punch to see what you did to that darling hangy-uppy-thingy! You rascal, you. Telling us you are NOT talented or clever. You dragged us into it, feeling sorry for you and BAM!!!! You made this!

Well, I forgive you. Hope the garage sale goes well....just tell them a sad sorry tale and they'll buy it all!

Bev said...

Well, dang. I didn't get this non-absorbent useless towel to you in time for you to sell it in your garage sale. Been out of town and haven't been to the p.o. It could bring upwards of 5 cents or so.
