Now that we are homeschooling I don't get to junk as consistently as I used to.
My usual plan would be to hit the junk shops first thing in the morning before the other shoppers had a chance to come and crowd my space. Now I am shopping whenever the rare opportunity arises, which is how I found myself at Global Thrift on a Monday afternoon.
The girls had a joint playdate with their pals J and K so I dropped them off and headed into Waltham.
I don't know if it's because this economy is so lousy or what, but the junk store pickin's have been slim. I did manage to find a few things though.
This sweet little nightstand was 3.99.
It quickly found it's way into Lily's room.
I also found this daisy blanket. I bet someone's grandmother made this.
I think it will be very cheery on the back of my couch.
This little bowl was so hopeful that for .49 I just had to give it a new home.
In other news about the lousy economy, today I did my own acrylic nail fill. I've never done it myself before but it came out okay. Except for one thing. The deep red color that I picked out of clearance at Walgreens seems to be less "Dignified Russet" and more "Shameless Hussy".
There's nothing sadder than a housewife forced into do it yourself beauty. If you see me reaching for hair dye, please do an intervention.
