our local thrift shop is called The Et Cetera Shop.
the town i grew up in had one also so it's been part of my life for a long time.
i donate LOTS of stuff to it every year. (kids out grow out of clothes so fast!)
but i buy LOTS of fun stuff there too.
this seriously heavy duty fish shaped bottle opener could not stay there all alone.
it needed me.
it was lonely....it had traveled all the way from Moses Lake, Washington!
a little spray paint....
a little oxi clean....
maybe some RIT dye for the chenille...
economical - frugal - sparing - saving - economic
craig may disagree that i am "thrifty" BUT at least i enjoy a bargain when i find one.
pottery in the perfect shade of turquoise....
teeny red cardinal salt and pepper shakers to be saved for a craft someday...
a silver dish to hold bracelets in my bathroom....
and a handmade blanket that screams "happy valentines day!"
a weathered globe....
and a yard of sweet heart fabric.
it was a fabulous day at the thrift shop.
i love those kind of days.
we are painting this after school...because....it's pretty!
and i can't wait.
it looks completely relaxing to paint that.
pattern and color over and over.....ahhhhhhh.
do you have big valentine's day plans?
i will be honest with ya'll....i don't celebrate Valentines.
i don't decorate.
i don't make treats.
i buy the $2 box of cards for my kids to take to class...with Victorious and Angry Birds.
i am sure if craig was one of those guys that went nuts with gifts and flowers for valentines i wouldn't object to that but seriously i just don't really care.
i know i am loved everyday.
and my kids know it too.
here is my ode to valentines....from the Lord.
thank you Lord for that kind of love.
