My Thrift Week-
With A Side Of Baking And Bed Head

Wasn't the greatest week for thrifting, I left empty handed more times than not. But there were a couple of times when the thrift gods were smiling down on me.

Plastic 70's bowl.

A groovy owl necklace.

I love vintage advertising graphics.


More Pyrex and Fire-King bowls.

A vintage sweater for Billy. It's probably from the 80's. Can you call that vintage? Anyway, gotta love acrylic.

These were my big find of the week. Vintage ornaments for a $1.99 at the Goodwill.

Now for the baking and bed head part.

This week instead of cleaning up glitter I'll be cleaning up icing and sprinkles.

Kirk's masterpieces.
After seeing these a new rule was made- You eat what you made.

Look at this hair!!!
It's the worst case of bed head I've ever seen.
Just be glad you weren't around when I had to take a brush to it.

Happy Monday!

I think my mom had that same bowl in the 70s. And Bella's hair looks exactly like that in the morning.

At my library, they have a free bookshelf where people can drop off books they don't want anymore. When I see old books with cool covers, I take them home and see how much I can get for them on ebay. 9 times out of 10 it's nothing. sigh. It breaks my heart to throw 'em in the recycling bin, but they're not MY childhood treasures.

Nice hair... funny how their hair gets THAT wild. Not a thrift connoisseur but I love the first bowl and that sweater. Growing up in post war Korea, retro stuff was never considered to be of value - all had to be new western stuff; so I don't really know how to look for or appreciate good thrift store stuff.

I love that owl necklace, but the ornaments are the best. It makes me homesick for my mother's Christmas tree. :(
