Okay, this isn't a thrifting photo, but it made me laugh, so I had to share!
DH made a "fishing pole" out of some chopsticks, tape, string and a paper clip. Nathan was using it in the bathtub to fish for his little plastic boats, but last Sunday night he decided to use it for a new game......Fishing For Underwear. (I'm so proud.)He got quite a kick out of it and caught quite a few pair!
On to thrifty finds:
These items are from two different thrifts. I picked up two uncut vintage dress patterns thinking I might resell them. The buttons were only .25, so you know those had to come home with me. The pillowcases have the sweetest daisies on them. Daisies are my favorite flower and pink is my favorite color, so had to have the pillowcases. Also a nice Strawberry tablecloth that will be reappearing as an apron or two sometime in the future. And in the background, a large orange tablecloth that I'm hoping to incorporate into the Summer Fun Swap. (Don't worry Dinah, I'm not sending you an orange tablecloth!)
I think there is some good thrifting Karma going around. A few days ago I saw a set of vintage Old Maid cards on a blog (cannot for the life of me remember which one) and I really wanted a set. Low and behold, I found one! I think it's a complete set (1 thru 19, plus the Old Maid) and the illustrations are great. I think "Go Go Gertie is my favorite card. I'm not sure about Thermo Thelma. She looks a bit like Nurse Ratchet to me. They're copyrighted 1968.
I have some great photos from today's Santa Barbara adventure, but they'll have to wait 'til tomorrow. We had a blast, but it's been a l.o.n.g. day and I definitely need some sleep. :)
