A little bit of this and, a little bit of that, makes a little bit of me.

There are a total of eight highball tumblers/drinking glasses in this fantastic set…perfect for any auto buff.

The top of each glass reads: Antique Autos in gold lettering.

Each glass is different vintage automobile from the early 1900’s, which includes a 1900 Oldsmobile, 1902 Packard, 1906 Stanley Steamer, 1906 Autocat, 1908 Buick, 1909 Nash Rambler, 1913 Maxwell & a 1013 Hudson!

The tumblers come in pretty Fiesta Colors of red, yellow, orange, green plus more!

The glasses are in near mint condition with no cracks or chips.

Each one measures approximately 6 1/2″ tall & 2 3/4″ in diameter.

There is no manufacturer’s mark. All for $4 (instead of $45 elsewhere)…another successful treasure hunt at Goodwill.

I think the difference between being thrifty and being cheap is in the attitude and reason behind it. You may do some of the same things like reuse plastic bags or shop at a thrift store or grow your own vegetables, but for different reasons.

The cheap person does it because they can’t stand to part with a nickel…the money itself means too much to them and they will deny themselves or others in order to hoard their money.

A thrifty person does it for many reasons including – they don’t have money, they want to preserve the environment, they enjoy creatively recycling something old into something new,

they appreciate the quality of older things that were better made than current ones,

they prefer to live simply, they have more to share because they buy at more reasonable prices so they can give more to family, friends and charities, etc. etc.

Yup, the lace shawl is still going. S-l-o-w-l-y…I worked approximately 6 rows earlier before getting interrupted. There is another ounce of batts left to spin. This shawl may take me the summer to complete at this rate 😀

Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!
