Meanwhile, let me share a slice of my day with you.
I had to get up extra early today to take child 2 to the orthodontist by 7:30, yes, 7:30!! It was early, but that way he wouldn’t miss his field trip, after the appointment I took him to school, did some grocery shopping for the dinner that we are having, oh and we had some guests over.
I went home, did some cleaning and prep for dinner, I also found some time to work on a project I am not sharing yet (don't call me mean, call me a tease :) ). Since today was early out I left home to pick them up before11:00. Then I realized I have a little time to kill, so I decided to just "peek" in a thrift shop.
Do you wanna see what I found?
I can't wait to make a liner for this basket, and accessorize it. Isn't is such a pretty basket? Things like this is very hard to come by.
A children's book. Actually I have been collecting this series and I found the one I haven't bought yet for 1.99! (Originally it is $16.99). It is in such great condition with the cover. I can't wait to read it to my kids tonight!
It was time to go, so I was the third person standing at the checkout line. I was checking my watch, looking around and THEN, I saw this lady, who was just a head of me at the checkout that had the exact same linen. Not just one or two but she had three!!! What?! Ugh! I should have left home 10 minute earlier.
I was hopelessly looking at them but SO hoping that she would change her mind in the last second.
Please, oh please just say; "I changed my mind, I don't need them.".
No, she didn't. I don't know why, but I kind of shoved the one I had in the basket I was going to buy, so she wouldn’t see it. It's not like she can say "give me yours, since I am already buying three of them, that is mine too." Silly.
Ah, shopping at a thrift store is an art. You never know what you will find, and when. It is totally unpredictable... But I think that is a part of the fun. That is why I will keep going back for more. :)
