But before all the fun begins, I thought I'd drop in fresh from our road trip to Austin and share some of the thrifted goodies I found this weekend. My friend Chelsie and I embarked on some half-price shopping on Sunday, going from Bellefontaine to Creve Coeur to Fenton and back toward the city. The first sale was great and we picked up some fun stuff, but the next two were kind of a bust. Then we stopped at Value Village, which also left us empty-handed (a rare occurrence there), but it was nice to actually go around with someone for a change (especially when they buy you a pastry from Whole Foods...yum!). :)
Here is what I brought home...
|This pillow I got mid-last week while out thrifting. I love, love, love it!|
|A really pretty brown leather purse with a built-in mirror under the flap, for the store.|
|Some green floral fabric napkins, for the store.|
|A cute little drawing of a sleeping lion with some really long hair. :)|
|Some vintage Christmas gift tags.|
|Some vintage ribbon.|
|A bag of small wooden bowling pins that were given as little awards. I know these could be cute if they're repainted, but I can't settle on an idea. What do you think?|
|And a family portrait that I bought for the frame. Although I guess I could keep them in it, but it would weird me out...like a lot. :)|
Your turn! Find any goodies this past week that you'd like to share? Would love to hear about it!
