okay….you know you are addicted to thrift when you have to cancel a dental appointment and then go thrifting instead. i really did have a legit reason to 86 my 9am this morning, but did that give me artistic license to scrambling from thrift shop to thrift shop???? of course! i found three new ones on the north side of town, and went for it!!! BOY DID I SCORE!! i found the coolest stuff and all for a good cause. i guess that’s the real benefit of buying other folk’s used goods. recycle, reuse. it’s the ‘green’ thing to do
zoey and i had a day of it….2 shops, a new doll, breakfast tacos, a big coke, a huge plate of chips and fresh salsa w/mega chunks of cillantro and all! i tried to get zoey to eat a big spring of the green stuff, but she told me ‘no’ and push it back at me. that’s the new buzz word….’no’. i love this stage!! she doesn’t even know what it means. sometimes i wonder if i do. after all the no’s…it was back on the thrifting trail for another store….a pack of smarties and one lolipop later…miss thing was pooped and so was i!! it was time to head back homeand sift thru the madness!!!
i managed to snap a few shots of my bling, sort thru some of it, wash some of it, get the kids all fed, happy and in bed, and watch tonite’s episode of celebrity apprentice. that gene simmons….all i see still is a crazy rock star with funky hair, lots of make-up and a german shepard tongue. oh…and those club boots!!! detroit rock city baby.
okay….here is some great lace, tule and what nots!! even an old hair net for ¢25
i found a ton of lace, doilies, pretty fabrics, jewels, a little tiny shell nightlight, a virgin mary statue, tiny flowers, and tule!!! found a little chippy shelf too..for only $1!! the lace was sooooo cheap. 25¢ a bag. wow!!
here is a piece of pink felt, some vintage cards and the cutest vintage blue pom poms. i hope to make something soon with all these cool supplies!!
more, more….the stuff below was in THE FREE PILE……….!!!!! i love the little roses tin, blue box and small pink candle holder. can’t complain about free stuff!!
and of course…i save the best for last!!!!! miss zoey with her new doll!! she is tear stained because i couldn’t get it wrapped up in the cute crocheted blanket fast enough!! once she got the little guy in her arms….happy as a baby!!
take care. that’s all for now.
