A-thrifting I did go

I've been tumbling about blogger this morning, getting caught up in long pauses, swirling and swirling "loading" signs, and generally not having fun. Trying to post a comment, having it not post, re-posting, then both posts showing up. What to do except take a long break and try again. And it seems the bloggity bogey has settled down.

On a whim, yesterday, I stopped by the thrift store. Now why would I do this when I have been decluttering and reorganizing these last few weeks?! The issue at hand is that I love the hunt and the thrill of finding something unique, interesting, collectible, nostalgic, oh and cheap budget-worthy. So I thought I would post some photos of a few of things I found.

Wooden display "ladder" (I have two others like these that I have found over the years)


Wooden pineapple tray...my guest room has a pineapple theme

Tray with cardinals, for carrying snacks to the family room

Three small canisters for herbs, and Green stuff for St. Patrick's Day



wood curtain rod rings, for a craft project


A box for holding what?

Two brand new decks of cards, unused score pad and two pencils

The girls want to know what I got for them
 (Don't be fooled by the sad faces; the girls always get biscuits and other doggie treats daily and a new toy now and then)

All my purchases came to less than 20 bucks.

Have a wonderful Wednesday.

Great finds and such cute doggies. Especially the front doggie looks super sad. That must have cost some training ; )
Have a magical day.

As for the box...remember the old Saturday Night Live skit...."you put your weed in there" tee hee hee

you are an inspiration! I hope that one day I will be a talented thrifter. I think it is a great skill to have.
I know the trick the girls are pulling. Rafiki does it to me all the time!
Brightest blessings to you!

Lovely finds!!! I need to check out the thrift shops here...The couple I've looked at are way over priced and rude...Hopefully I can make a few stops this Summer at the MASSIVE flea market they hold in the next town over :D I love flea markets!

Ah yes! I also love to bargin hunt. It seems as though as soon as I get rid of a few things, it doesn't take me long to replace them with something else I don't really need, but want!!! I can't help myself, it's in my DNA!!!

Cool stuff!!!

Blessings,

Kim
