I guess I only blog about thrifting now. That's all I have time for since school has taken over my life. Our Saturday morning tradition is the only piece of my personal life that has managed to survive.
I did okay.
Salt and Pepper Shakers- $.75 each
Vintage Martini Shaker- $3.00
The salt and pepper shakers match my canister set! I broke our old pepper shaker, so we needed a new set anyway. Also I really think that font is Champagne and Limousines. I will never use that martini shaker to shake martinis, but I love anything with good type on it. I'll drink coffee out of it or something. SO MOD.
Desert Paint by Numbers-$13.95
My blog friend Danavee commented on my Vintage Paint by Numbers post saying she had a few in her local flea market booth. When I got there and got lost looking for her other booth, I messaged her and she responded and gave me directions. Directing me to exactly what I want and helping me find my way around the store? Awesome customer service.
I love this desert scene. I added it to my collection wall:
Grow, collection, grow!
This is off-the-charts cuteness. A little overwhelming for me. Steve Martin holding a cat like a baby? That cat looks so happy.
I found it inside this:
Steve Martin album-$8.00
Boom. So happy to finally find this! Actually Rando found it. I only pay more than $2.50 for albums I really, really love, and this one made the cut. I have a little crush on this man.
I was born into the wrong time.
I passed up a bajillion other paint by numbers, due to budget constraints. Rand only stays on board with the thrifting thing if I pace myself. I also passed on a huge poster of 80's MJ that would have made me the happiest girl on earth, but would have probably scared off any potential house buyers. And I missed out on a gorgeous mid-century bedroom set at the estate sale. I was clawing around for a price tag when someone came over and informed I was shopping in the sold stuff.
But overall, I did okay. Now get out there and enjoy your Labor Day weekend, fools!
