Happy #ThriftyThursday friends!
(Is #ThriftyThursday even a thing, or did I make it up?)
This week is my nine year blogiversary! I know – almost a decade. What in the world? And while I have been working on a bigger post about what I have learned in nine years of blogging, I have been reminiscing about all the things I used to post about, but somewhere along the line, stopped. Like posting about my thrifty finds.
I don’t know why I stopped posting about my thrift store and flea market adventures (Maybe because there is something a little odd about sharing what you buy with the world? Or maybe it was during one of my blog-identity-crisis’?) But the truth is that I love it when other people post their thrifty treasures on their blogs or on Instagram. It is always so fun to see what others are drawn to.
So I decided to bring this posting tradition back here on my blog, for old times sake.
Here are this weeks scores:
They are in no particular order –
A box of real wooden blocks. These I am going to clean up, and give to my nephew later on when he is a little bigger. Old school wooden blocks are the BEST and my boys loved theirs.
The biggest spool of string ever. We will now never run out of string again. When I bought it, the checkout gal asked me ” What are you going to do with this?” You should have seen her face when I said “Look at it.” Of course I have a feeling it will get used for all sorts of things. Wonder how long it will last…
A stripey dish towel. This will probably become a pillow or part of a pillow. The colors are too perfect.
A yellow and white hankie. No plans yet, but it will come to me.
A No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency Book. I loved this (brief) tv series and I have wanted to read all the books since I first saw this show. Lately I have been looking for a series to obsess over, and when I saw this book I knew the time was right to pick these up again.
Mini-Fruit Baskets. These will go in the new kitchen. Either as light fixtures or as baskets. Not sure yet.
Happy Thursday friends!
