Thrift Thursday

Lord knows I don't need anymore STUFF, but visiting thrift shops is one of my favorite pastimes. Such a thrill to find a treasure for a little money.  My favorite shop is only a few blocks from here, and I go most Wednesdays, when their clothing is 50% off. Mike finds this very humorous.  Several years ago I joined a Flickr group called Thrift Thursday where we share our finds.  I thought some of you might enjoy seeing my finds as well, and maybe even join the group.  Here is what I found yesterday...

A gorgeous Laura Ashley dress in pristine condition for $5! Perhaps a bit dated, but I'm hoping the birth of Prince George will renew the love of all things British.

Vintage barkcloth curtain panel (folded in half for this picture) for $3!!! Hardly ever see these anymore. There is a sizable yellowish stain on the other side, but I am thinking maybe tea-dying it would make it less noticeable. Not sure what I will do with it, perhaps just add it to my stash and admire it.

My adorable grandsons

Arthur on the left, Charlie on the right. They spent the night with us at the loft and I got to dress them in the cute Scottie smocked rompers that I had bought (and their mother would never put on them :-)

They have matured so much since we last saw them at the beginning of May, walking everywhere, climbing, babbling and playing with each other.  Got home yesterday and miss them already...
