Today was fun and included 2 of my favorite things.
Spending time with my sister and treasure hunting.
We started off on a mission of sorts.
The goal was to find home goods for sister's abode and a few goodies to add to my collections.
We started off at Ross and here is what caught my eye:
I have actually had my eyes out for a cookbook holder that was attractive enough to leave on the counter tops...and today it was found.
How do you leave that behind?
You don't.You bring her home and snuggle her up with a favorite cookbook...mine happens to be one of my Barefoot Contessa cookbooks.
The binding and covers on these are so attractive.
Almost looks like tapestry on the cover.
They were $2.99 each.
I also found an old Alice in Wonderland book for Morgan.
It was priced at $1.99
That will be #1 on her summer's reading list.
Next: my favorite!
I always have my eyes peeled for these.
(i think we all have our eyes peeled for these)
The first one is cream on the exterior and perfectly clean.
The inside has beautiful peach colored lining and I don't think it has ever been used.
This one was $4.99
I walked past it a couple of times just eyeing her until I picked her up, and then, really fell in love.
It's a very boxy case and again, was in excellent condition.
She was priced at $5.99 and worth every penny.
The lining looks like vintage wallpaper and had not one scuff or mark on it.
I appreciate who ever took such great care of these.
I love wondering who owned these before me and where they have been.
I have had such good luck thrifting today...I almost feel as if I should take advantage of that luck and drag my children out with me now.
What have you found during your thrifting lately?
