i totally love thursdays!! it’s goodwill and ladies charity thrift day!!! zoey loves it too! she gets fig newtons and a poppi…(lolipops). she also gets sticky fingers that turn into sticky hands that turn into glue like appendages that pull and stick to my hair when she’s tired and in the backpack. ugh. today was no exception. she pulls my hair as hard as she can, gets her sticky fingers stuck and then giggles hysterically while i tear up and bleed. okay. then zoey and i ate mexican food for lunch. what a riot!!! zoey got into a fight with a plate of rice and refried beans. i think she scared the man behind me away. he ate rather quickly and left immediately. i bet he’s never spent an afternoon alone with a 1 year old. he has no idea what he is missing!!
well…it was a pretty good thrift day. found some really neat stuff. i think my favorite find was the 10 yards or so of vintage floral fabric i found way at the bottom of the g.w. bin. i don’t have a clue what i will do with it, but it’s soooo beautiful, i couldn’t leave it there!!!
i also found a darling crocheted blue and white throw, a chenille pillowcase, a tea towel with little strawberries on it and some vintage flowers, a plate, a little cute pink vintage purse and some other goodies. not bad and all under $10. oh yeah…found this darling elephant wall hanging as well….
another favorite find today is this religious statue i found for a quarter. i couldn’t believe it!! marked 1966 on back and stamped ‘made in italy’.
some other finds…..a huge suitcase for $1. i will paint it pink and ‘fu fu’ it up. found a gorgeous vintage nightgown cut on the bias. love it!! a bunch of cute craft ribbon, vintage, 10¢ a piece!! a vintage pink hat, some kitchen goodies and these plates…..
that’s about it. my shallow day….yes, the debates were on tonight in austin, texas and i picked american idol instead. arrested development. okay…make those girls stop crying already about folks getting kicked off!! they have known eacher other 10 minutes and they act like old souls. what am i saying….i can’t stop watching that goofy show.
okay…out to check if arek’s asleep or just pretending. zoey is knocked out and i can’t stop eating!!!
oh…one more thing. i re styled my business card. here’s a look….
