I had some errands to run, and I was also on the look out for some buttons (I need to fix a sweater that I've had for a while, but I don't have enough buttons for it), so I decided to stop by our local SPCA thrift store. I wasn't really convinced that they'd have what I needed, but it was worth a stop, since I was out anyway.
I should also mention that I've been looking for a 6 quart food storage container, because I want to make Artisan Bread in 5 min. Since I couldn't find any 6 quart containers in any of the stores near me, I ordered them online. They also had a deal to include the Danish Dough Whisk for $9. I decided that $9 was too much to spend on a one-use item, even if I would be using it often.
While I was wandering around at the thrift store, I found their prices were really good. They have deals everyday, it seems... when I was there, the clothes were buy 1 get 1 free. I didn't need any clothing, but it was nice to know that I could get really inexpensive clothing that could be altered, if I have the time. While wandering, I didn't find any buttons... but I did find this:

Later in the day, I saw a recipe for Soft Pretzel Bites (from one of the blogs I follow), and I figured I may as well try it out. I'd also stopped at Trader Joes and picked up some much needed dairy products for baking scones/cinnamon rolls/etc. So after I got home, I started baking... and kept baking until I had this:

Also, here's the current progress on the socks (I'll do a full post when they're done):
