Hey friends, I hope your summer (or winter) is going well. It is hot, hot, hot here. I look at the number and it is never as hot as I think it is or that it will get, but I literally feel like I am melting at all times of day and night. Being pregnant during the summer is serious business! One thing that I can always rely on to be nice and cool is the thrift store, not that I need an excuse, but the nice air conditioned thrift stores provide a nice change of scenery when Lucy and I start to get cabin fever. She will usually grab a toy or two, hop in the shopping cart and play for a little while as I waddle down the thrift store isles.
On to some of my recent finds.
1. This set of Marcrest Swiss Chalet dishes. I have talked about them in the past here. I have a friend who collects this set, but I may just have to hang on to these for a little while, I am really in love with them. (Sorry Erin!)
2. I have been building up a collection of enamel dishes and pots for picnics and future camping trips. Also, plaid linens and blankets, because only plaid will do when you are camping! I have been dreaming of camping all summer long, but not while pregnant. I hope to get back into it next year.
3. A few randoms. Pyrex, which I pretty much quit buying quite some time ago (I still need to sell off quite a bit of my hoarded dishes!), but this is my favorite print. That little girl, I don’t even have words for how much I love her chubby cheeks and bedroom eyes. I plan to use her to keep my makeup brushes in. A little bird wall vase.
Have you had any good thrifts lately?
