{ thrifting } making me smile

whose face is happy?

Mine.  (FP desk, all pieces, $2)


(preschool-sized chair, 75 cents)

I have had wonderful luck garage sale-ing and thrifting lately.


(3 yds designer bambook print home dec fabric, $2.50)

Terribly good luck.

I even rescued this pony.


Who has a liking for vintage fabrics and linens as much as I do.


Her name is Pearl.


She likes these two very much.  It was hard to get her to step away.


I do believe Pearl quite fancies the camera, as well.

Silly filly.



Ack! That FP desk! We had that! I wonder if it's still at my mom's place? And 75 cents for the chair? That is a steal. It would have been 10 bucks at a thrift store here.

can you come here and go thrifting with me? I don't even know where to start.


I can hear you saying 'Silly Filly' and it makes me giggle. :)


so now you are lucky and HILARIOUS? it's just not fair! xoxo


A haiku inspired by this post:

Me. Green with envy.
Your thrifting is so lovely
I want good junk too.



That's some serious thrifting, and super great finds! Love the fabric and sheets!!


The first pic made me smile! I so remember playing with that!


Oh, my gosh, that's some serious good luck! I want that FP desk and that chair!! And those fabrics! Wow.

that fp desk/chalk/magnet letter toy...i had one of those & have been wanting to find one. i have some of the best childhood memories w/ that toy...hands down my favorite! i also had a desk that went w/ the chair in your photo! how i long for all 3 :)


That Fisher Price toy is fantastic! We had one like that too when I was growing up... you have had some great finds!


all very good! i have a thing for chairs. yours is super cool. i'm going today. shhh. don't tell the hubs. :)


nice! what a great bunch of goodies!


I totally had that FP desk, but I think we either lost the cards or they were ruined. I'm sure it was run off from my brother because I never knew what to do with the thing and the letters were on the fridge. Thanks for the flashback!


heavens to Betsy, woman! Nevermind all the stuff I got rid of during our move (and how much I still have TO move) - I need to say to heck with it all and have a thifting day with you. Maybe early November?


Oh!! I used to play with that fisher price tow when I was little, I loved it!!! :)


oh, that desk almost made me cry!! what i would do to still have mine.

i don't think i've ever commented before, but i really enjoy your blog!

Love the FP desk. I actually found one brand new in a box at the Goodwill for Gracie when she was younger but we got rid of it, kids have way too many toys. Bummer that hubs isn't a keeper. It is quite fun!
