It had been awhile since we thrifted, so me and my mom met at Goodwill one
day last week and then another day, I stopped at Savers. I found a few pretty
things, including these cool champagne glasses - handpainted in Hungary.
I wasn't going to get them - I don't even like champagne - but my mom said
they'd look pretty in my china cabinet when I do vignettes with primary colors.
You should always listen to your mom, sooo...
I do not need any more Christmas decorations - in fact, last year I got
rid of a lot, but I do love unique, vintage decor and this silver-plated
angel from Italy (made by Wm A Rogers - I have the original box, too)
with candles caught my eye.
I love the cheerful colors on this Vera Bradley recipe box. I'm not using it
for its intended purpose though. I'm using it in my room/office to hold some
scrapbooking stuff. Makes a great box for ribbon or embellishments.
The inside of the recipe box...
OK, I couldn't resist this little Christmas tree either. *Sigh*, I'm hopeless.
This is just an inexpensive lacquered tray originally from Target, but
I thought it was pretty. I could use something like this anywhere - coffee
table, dresser, bookshelf. Would be a great catch-all for jewelry.
A young woman very near and dear to my heart - she's like a niece to me - is
expecting her first baby in February. And, she knows the baby is a boy, so I've
already started shopping for clothes! Lucky for me, she doesn't mind thrift store
clothes. Savers was having a 50% off clothing sale this past Monday, so these
Onesies were only 50 cents - $1 each. I especially love the Chicago Bears one on
the right. Rachel is originally from my area (Chicago suburbs) and now lives in
Canada with her husband, so I think she'll really like the Bears Onesie, too. I had
laundered and folded all these impossibly small Onesies and had them in a little
stack. I showed them to Brian and said, "Is there anything cuter than a stack of
freshly washed Onesies?" Brought a smile to his face, too.
I love this unique lemonade pitcher. It has a "lip" on the top; didn't show up in
the photo. It's tall and skinny. I bet it originally came with matching glasses.
I'm doing a little fluffing in my nest today ~ I have a new friend (she's been my
yoga teacher for a couple of year now) that's stopping by this evening and
seeing my house for the first time. I also need to run some errands and
on the way, I will take a brisk walk in the State Park. I'm really trying to
keep the daily exercise in check. Sometimes I dread doing it, but I feel
good afterwards. I hope you all have a great weekend!
