First, I feel the need to apologize for not blogging much. I may have mentioned before that my 21-yr-old daughter has severe anxiety issues and doesn't work, so I let her use the computer most of the time.
Now, here are a few of my recent thrift store finds, along with a few nice freebies from down the street! I'll start with this very sturdy Bakelite handled utensil spoon.
Next is a pretty red teacup. A little bit beat up, but so beautiful! I'm in love with the inside rim. They just don't make 'em like they used to.
This grouping is just a few odds-and-ends. Sometimes the little things are the best!
Now, for the freebies: This nice wicker rocking chair was out with the trash just two doors down. I knocked and asked if it was broken or anything, and carted it on home!
This laundry sink was also out with the trash on another week, and about ten houses down. I'm thinking maybe I could use it gardening somehow. It was too good to just leave there so, of course, I made Mister drive down and retrieve it!
See the large light fixtures behind it? Mister brings these home from the plant he works at. When they go to replace them and throw them away, he asks for them. They'll probably spend a lifetime in the barn but, hey, they're free!
