Thrifting Frenzy


Lately, the thrifts have been lame.  So lame that I've walked out empty-handed on more than one occasion.

And really, my trip this weekend wasn't outstanding, but I did finally get in line at the register.

Silverware trays were in abundance.  These both caught my eye......



I can't pass up a good cork board.  Especially when it's adorned with an eagle.......



Found the matching skirt to a blazer I bought WEEKS ago......



And stole this mirror from my mom's garage sale pile........



I've been having better luck snatching things from my parent's garage sale pile than at the thrifts.

And those items are free.

However, the mister might be ready to ban the-plucked-from-the-pile-bunny......



He thinks it watches him with "its beady eyes".

He called it creepy.

Poor thing.

The bunny, that is.

  1. See you got your open house card.....yea!!!! I realized the other day when I walked out of one of the stores that I didn't have to use hand sanitizer because I hadn't even taken my hands out of my pockets. Oh, well, pretty soon we'll have garage sales again. Jan

  3. Ha. You make me laugh. Poor bunny, of course :). I can't believe you found the skirt to the blazer you bought weeks before. Lucky you! The mirror from your mom's garage sale is great! I love that Sir Chester was in the picture as well. Great finds.

  9. Love the mirror. I'm a sucker for those! I would have every wall of my apartment covered in them if it didn't seem weird and self obsessed.

    I'm kind of on your husband's side about the bunny...he's a little creepy.

  18. The eagle corkboard is awesome. Are you going to paint it or leave it as-is? Also, your dog is possibly the cutest thing I've ever seen. I love its crazy hair. :)

  19. Ha! That bunny is a little creepy (says she who has a porcelain doll's head and a glass eye on my kitchen dresser!)

    Love that your dog got in on the shot and totally agree with you on snaffling things from friends and family before they get to the sale!

  25. I would set the bunny next to the bed so it's the first thing he sees when he wakes up.

  29. The thrifting around here was slow to start for the year but it is definitely picking up. Fingers crossed that the same happens soon in your area!

    I really do love that bunny. Someone really loved him at one point.

  31. I bought a whole stack of classic books this week. I would love to find a framed cork board like that. I'm actually hoping not to find anything really good lately because we're moving in a few months and I'm trying to have less things to pack. Your dog is adorable :)
