These are the Thrifts of our Lives

Hello everyone! Everyone meaning Mom, Stacey, Jamie and Heather. I hope you had, and still are having, a fine week. This week was a pretty busy week. Abby and Ella are both bringing home reading and math assignments now. Shoot me now... Seriously. The kitties have taken up shop on my front porch, which is fine but Jack and Nilla won't stay out of the front window and keep huffing and barking when they see them. Oh and we are going to keep two of the kittens as our own. NOW, this is something I have never experienced so I am a little anxious and I am probably going to be a drama queen about the litter training as I am already thinking about how stressful it could be do that kind of thing. Seriously though, the white one is too cute and has one blue and one green eye. I think that's a sign from God that I should have him. That's ahout it for me.

My little Abby is a style go-getter. We watched this video on Youtube and she had to do it for school. She came home and I asked if everyone just loved her hair and she told me "they said it was weird, but I still love it." Be still my heart , this kid is going to be an individual and I couldn't be more proud! This picture was at the end of the day so it was a little fashuganid.

This weeks finds come courtesy of the Elyria historical society. They had a big fund raising yard sale and I got all of these little treasures. The box is just a shelf that I am going to spray paint and do something with. The notepads are game point keeper thingies (yes, that is a technical term). The fish is paper mache, I thought Abby would like it. In front of that there are a bunch of vintage postcards for a special P.P., along with the Lou Rawls record. The coffee tin is in perfect shape and smells lovely inside. The book is an Oprah pick called Tara Road. Have you read it? Anyhoo, what else? Oh, the flower is just fabulous and I may never wear it but I like looking at it.

This week I did quite a bit of clothes thrifting, also. These shoes were the best find a girl could have hoped for. They were half price at Sallie's or Salvation Army for the laymen. ( Thanks to Lisa's mom for that little gem.) The open-toed kitten heels are going to be great for this Fall weather that is starting. I haven't decided if I will get really trendy and wear them with a pair of socks like I have been seeing in the Fashion magazines... prolly not, but you knew that already didn't you. The blue boots are to die for and in such good condition I think my straight legs are going to be great with those. Finally the red boots- I do love these but they are a little to butch as they are men's boots, so I am going to do some spray painting and stenciling to wear them with my Halloween costume. Should look a little like this when I am done:

Well Rick is refusing to dress-up! He's boring. I will be going solo I guess. :(
