Saturday I spent pretty much all day working on a big exciting project for Parsimonia, and guys, I'm seriously dying to tell you what I have going on, but it will have to wait a little longer until it's almost finished. :) However, there certainly is something to celebrate right now: The Blues are headed to Round 2 of the playoffs! The game on Saturday had me on an emotional roller coaster, but we ended up beating San Jose to advance, and I could not be prouder of this team. It's been so long since we've made it past the first round, and I'm trying to keep my cool, but I think we really have a shot at the Cup this year. We just have to take it one round at a time, and next up is the team of my former home, Los Angeles. They beat Vancouver (seeded #1) in five games, so it will be no small feat.
Sunday morning I was finally able to get to a couple estate sales, and one thrift store. The first one was a little picked over, but I found some goodies to bring home. The second was even more sparse, and I only left with one thing. After that, my mom and I went to a nearby Goodwill, and it was a GOOD visit! I found some stuff that still makes me squeal with glee a little. Want to see?
|I found this handmade basket in the basement of the second sale.|
Will work perfectly in our dining room.
|Two stainless steel canisters from Goodwill. Can never have enough of these to store baking ingredients!|
|A really pretty vintage bolero jacket. Has two big buttons in the front and a shimmery tan pattern.|
Would looks especially cute over a vintage dress. For sale, if you're interested!
|A vintage juice/iced tea pitcher for the store. Chrome top with the kind of spout you see on vintage|
syrup dispensers (pull a knob back and a piece of stainless slides back to let you pour).
|A set of four pedestal dessert dishes. I'm starting to get really into the clear textured glass, and these|
will be great for some upcoming parties!
|Another super cute serving set, but this one is for sale. Four juice/water glasses with a pitcher and serving tray.|
The gold bands are in really good condition.
|The hubs found this chair on Friday and brought it home. The fact that he got this even though he always scolds |
me for bringing home new chairs we don't need shows he really loves this girl. :)
|My find of the day! A set of nine Fire King jadeite mugs, spotted on a cart at Goodwill. |
I think I'm going to sell a set of 4 or 6 and keep the rest.
|And three of the divided jadeite plates. |
(I thrifted one a while ago, so now there is a set of four for the store!)
I was SO excited when I spotted that jadeite. I didn't have a cart, but grabbed everything and looked like a psycho as I carefully maneuvered my way to the front to get a basket. But I've learned my lesson before: If you leave it alone for even a minute, it will be gone when you get back. :)
How about you? Find anything good this weekend?
