Today two seeming rarities collided in my neck of the woods,
those being 1) It was a sunny day and 2) I had extended "me time,"
as my kiddos are in California visiting my parents.
So it was time to do a little thrifting!
(Although it's always time for that.)
I'll start with owls :)
This cute little guy is so cute.
I actually have another one like this already,
but it has a teeny chip on one ear.
Now that I have two, I'll glue a little bow on the other one
to make a Mr. and Mrs. Owl set.
And to hide the chip, of course ;)
I found two sets of these vintage owls.
They're cuter in person for some reason.
This isn't super old, but I liked the lettering.
And as you can see, it was only 25 cents.
Being that I love baking, I found this cup adorable.
It says "The happiest time I ever had was when I made another glad."
This little pile of wooden pieces have the cutest graphics.
I found them at an antique store, and there are seven total...everything from Abe Lincoln
to a ship to my favorite, the little doggie begging for scraps.
I also like the clown...does anyone know what they are for?
And being that I am always looking for vintage cowboy stuff
for my kiddos bedroom, I also loved these.
And by the same token, this :)
It's on the bigger side, too, which makes it great for using as a decoration.
I haven't bought old photographs for awhile,
but I like these two Christmas-y ones.
I would love to have that Santa on my door!
And I love the little tinseled tree in this one.
My friend's little boy has a birthday coming up and I want to find a way
to use this cute wrapping paper! There isn't a lot of it,
and I'd kind of hate to use it just to wrap something. The irony, huh?
Here's some new things I found today.
Well, new meaning not vintage :)
An Ann Taintor mug for 50 cents.
This card struck me as really cute.
Ah, isn't cheap reading material the BEST?
I found a nice stack of my favorite magazines for 10 cents each--
Country Living, Mary Jane's Farm, and Bliss Victoria.
And I found a book I've been looking for too, at only a dollar.
(Yeah, there's no way I could finish it in the library lend out time, ha!)
4 hours of out-and-aboutness without worrying
about being gone too long ;)
