Good Morning, Friends!
Today is the big day. Sister got into town late last night so that we could better acquaint Miss Piper with Mister Bullet. Hopefully we can get them to hold still long enough to get a cute picture of them together to share with all of you.
But that is now why today is the big day. Sister, Maddie, & I have big plans to make our boxes for Erica's Annual Valentine's Day Box Swap. This is the first year that we have participated plus the first swap that we have all ever done. We will be sure to take lots of pics so look for the post. We won't be posting it right away because we don't want to spoil the surprise for our swap partners.
Thrifting hasn't been too bad around here. But sometimes I just get lazy and don't want to have to hunt and dig. Does that make me a bad thrifter? Anyways, sometimes I just want the ease of going into an antique mall and having the finding work all done for me. I am never let down at Glory Days, my favorite mall. Plus. when I went in last Friday, it was the last day of their End of the Season sale. Care to see what I brought home?
I had a credit for one of my favorite booths so I stocked up on more valentines. You can't ever have enough.
There is a huge booth in the back of the store that had tons of these mugs during the holidays but I never bought any because I was having good luck with finding them in the thrift stores. These were the last three and they were below thrift store pricing. They are kind of beat up but I think that gives them more character.
The super nice lady working the counter that day actually owned the booth that I bought these Mica birds from (Hi, Kathy!). I think she was surprised to see that I knew what these were and wasn't just buying them simply because they were cute. Thanks to Magpie Ethel and her infinite collections, I am becoming much more knowledgeable about all of the amazing vintage goodies out there. Thanks, Laurie!
I also got this cute little tin from her booth. I try to pick up Easter decor whenever I can. Someday I hope to have a collection that rivals my vintage Christmas. Hey, a girl can dream, right?
Does a week go by that I don't buy vintage drinking glasses? I am starting to have more glassware than Pyrex and believe me, that is saying a lot! I am not sure of the maker so I will have to go through my books and do a little research. Anybody out there have any ideas?
Yay! Another state glass for my collection! Jill over at A Little Bit of Everything wants me to start blogging about my collections. Hmmmm, that's a good idea! It's nice to know that if I ever have a shortage of thrifting finds, I have a back up plan. I am the queen of back up plans!!
Do you all want to see my car buddy?
He loves the car and is very well behaved in it. Sometimes I just take him on a drive to get him to calm down. Puppies are more like babies that I actually ever thought!
Have a great weekend everyone! I am going to link up over at:
