We had a few extra minutes in between running to the post office and doing laundry this week, so we decided to pop into our favorite thrift store. I’m so glad we did.
Galvanized buckets. Because we live on a homestead and can never have enough of them. I especially love them for functional decorating.
A rug for the front door, but it had to match the rug in the main living area, because, well that’s what we’ve got… one room.
A sweater to replace my beloved orange wrap that I’ve been wearing for at least three years. It’s beyond repair, and for me, that’s saying a lot. My boys may also have mentioned that paired with my green knit hat, I look somewhat like a life sized carrot. So it was either a new hat or a new sweater. Well, I found the sweater. You know the one. It fits absolutely perfect. It gets worn everywhere, for everything. It’s perfect for cool mornings in the garden or folding up the bottom to gather eggs. Throwing it over a shirt that has stains on the front from your kid wiping his face when he gave you a hug and you need to run to the store for toilet paper, but you’re too tired to change. Yeah, that one. It’s cotton and will be perfect for adding a layer during the chilly weather that’s yet to come. Now, I need to knit another hat to match. Darn.
