Wordful Wednesday: Good Things

What I really loved to do, back when, was thrifting.  Over the years, I have come home with some real treasures( Bread Machine I have had for years and is still working $5, Joseph Abboud suit my husband is still wearing...$7).  Since the REALLY tight times struck, I have felt as though we can afford nothing so there is no need to go shopping.

Thursday last week, I found myself in need of super hero costumes.  A thrift store safari was in order.

I am fairly certain we found the object of our search, but-who-the-heck-really-knows?

In the course, I rediscovered my first love.



Tres jolie, non?



That is a five (5).  But.  They were 35% off.

I was captivated...and apparently, I am cheaply had. 

My tailored side was not to be left out.  Linen.  Straight from the dry cleaners.

 Not. Kidding.

Also found: another pair of shoes, a child's primary colored bookshelf, "Wonder Twin" purple t-shirts, and a cobalt blue tea kettle...Total $36.00*

Rediscovering the bliss of rescuing precious things others have left behind...priceless.

*the thrift stores held no better cameras. Yeah, I get that this is really for showing off you camera skills as well as your kids.

Those shoes are awesome! I love thrift stores. I got the skirt I wore on mother's day for $1.63 at the thrift store! Plus not to mention all of the props for photography that I get.

Stopping by from MMILE. Love those shoes. I used to do the thrift store circuit when I had one and it was great! Now with 3 I feel like I have no time, but you are right it is fun!
