I turn 31 today. Ouch. Maybe I’ll just turn 30 again. Yes, I like that plan.
My family was in town this week-end for the special occasion. New tradition is to spend Saturday thrifting while Nate spends the day in accounting land. I’d love for him to join us. But I also enjoy the freedom of buying without judgment. I like to buy Pyrex in peace.
I found some great bargains that I will show with you. Everyone loves blogger Show and Tell.
I have been looking for chairs for my craft room for the past 2 months. I found these lovelies for $10 a piece. They are the perfect shape. They do, however, need a paint job.
I can’t stop buying Pyrex. It’s a sickness. I told my mom to only let me buy square Pyrex. She’s fired. I guess I can’t blame her. Can you pass up coral Pyrex or strawberry Pyrex? You can’t.
I spotted this all bucket in an antique mall. I was telling my mom how adorable it was. Long story short, the owner of the booth was there. He kept trying to make a deal with me. I kept telling him it was cute but I am really cheap. He told me he appreciated frugal people and ended up marking the bucket down from $45 to $5. And I thought I was horrible at negotiating.
I’m a sucker for the American Gothic painting. It’s so very Iowa. I’m sure this one is totally an original. I’m not exactly sure where it is going to live but I couldn’t pass it up.
I found these cute little rain boots. They make me think of Spring which will never arrive in Iowa. 4-7” inches more of snow over the next two days. I will focus on how darling the boots look on our console table.
I love a successful birthday thrifting adventure.
Find any good bargains lately? What color should I paint those chairs? Who thinks I need a life size version of those yellow boots? Me too.
