"Tell me, what is it you plan to do

with your one wild and precious life?"

Saturday, May 5, 2012


I did a little thrift store shopping yesterday afternoon, before I went to my niece's graduation, and I really found some good buys. The reason I went was to find a cheap book and/or magazines to read while I was waiting, but I found much more than that.


This Kate Spade bag was $6. I'm not one to buy name brands, but made an exception for this one.

I couldn't resist the color of this vintage Pyrex dish.
This bag is heavy duty and worked really well as a book carrier (yes, I did buy books).

But the best find was this cabinet. We have been on the lookout for something like this so we could replace our monstrosity of an entertainment armoire. This one is much more suited to the scale of our sunroom. Now we have to rearrange and clean, which is a good thing.

But just now, Steve has gone to hit tennis balls and I'm going to relax on the couch and read. Happy Saturday!


  1. Wonderful finds, I love the bags. Have a nice relaxing time reading.

  2. I love the dish! and the bags..Enjoy your quite time!

  3. Wow, you had great luck! Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

  4. I love the colors in that KS bag. Beautiful!

  5. What great finds - I think I need to hit our thrift shop soon. I've often found clothes with the tags still on them.
