This last week was the first full week that Alex has been gone. He moved up to Corvallis and starts school on Monday. Thankfully, he's only 45 minutes away. It's been a huge adjustment going from having 4 of us here to only 3. Everybody is feeling it a little bit. Brian has actually asked me to watch football with him! I think he's a little lonely.
I'm still finding junk, so at least that part of my life hasn't changed.
Lots of pretty thrifted vintage pillowcases.
I bought these pillowcases on Instagram. I couldn't resist the pretty mint stripes and original packaging.
A big stack of sheets from an estate sale
Another IG purchase. I'm stockpiling pretty vintage bathroom things for Alex's bathroom makeover. Won't he be thrilled when he comes home?
I collect the Morning Glory jars and was surprised to find one while out thrifting. No lid, but at 99 cents, who cares? The enamel camping mugs are for my vintage camping decorations that I plan to put out after my 4th of July ones come down next year.
My first ever Fire King Sealtest cottage cheese bowl. These babies are hard to find!
Maddie and I went to the annual fall open house at a local antique mall a couple of weeks ago. I think these were definitely fitting purchases for the season.
This awesome old Coca Cola cooler was worth the illegal U-turn in front of a school bus during rush hour. The risks we take for junk.
And then this happened...
I went to an estate sale that had a "vintage camping stove" listed. I never in a million years thought I would be finding the pink one that matches my other Coleman pieces. Well, that collection escalated quickly...
Oh, and did you all know that our little ol' blog was the featured Blog of the Week over at Adirondack Girl @ Heart? Diana wrote an amazing post about us and was able to perfectly capture what we love to collect and hunt for. Thanks so much, Diana! It's quite the honor :-)
