Pretty Thrifting



This was a random day in the yard last week...


...but I actually took my camera out because I wanted to get pics of M in this dress. It's one of my mama's thrift store finds (like I said, she's a longtime pro).  She's given us probably 20 dresses from the thrift store this summer, but this is one of my favorites.  So classic and simple -- just the way I like 'em.


I wish I found awesome things in thrift stores.
It's is a gift, I believe --
an eye for treasures combined with time and patience.
While I've scored a few random things (like the desk in our office/guestroom),
I usually have very little luck.
(Though I tend to have better luck
in kids' consignment shops. Kinda the same thing.)


So because I'm not a great in thrift stores,
I live through my mom and blogs like this and this.
Maybe I'll learn something.


This little stool right here is another thrift store find of my mom's.  It's a "Time Out" stool complete with the words "TIME OUT" on the top and a timer.  Unfortunately the timeout method doesn't work very well for us.



But the timer is fun to play with apparently.

She's such a country girl at heart.


Then someone decided she wanted to sweep the leaves out of the garage.


No way was I stopping her.  We may be on to something here...

Hope you're having a great week so far.
