My treasures this week were limited, the stores were packed with people. I wonder if they were back to school shopping? Seriously I couldn't even find a cart or a parking space at my favorite haunt. I did find a few treasures and I have a few from last week I didn't share.
I felt a happy going to my sons closet and pulling out his back to school clothes which I have been collecting for months now, no freak out just a quick wash and tumble and we are set. He may need new shoes but his favorite thing to wear right now are his waffle stompers or rubber boots so old shoes for in school may do for now. I love this aspect of the thrifting life, being prepared in advance is a priceless gift of peace of mind for me. Which I suppose eventually trickles down to family harmony.
Here are the treasures: first up the trike we bought last week at the BARN SALE...
isn't it great? And it hooks to our big wagon or little wagon for maximum working boy pleasures!
This was found at the BARN SALE last week too. I felt like it's beauty might be lost with the all the other goodies. I think this is a tea sized table cloth? Hand embroidered and cross stitched, it is so beautiful.
This painting intrigues me. What is it? I don't know but I think like it.
I love this painting too! The purple brown bear reading is softly relaxing to me.
I also found a couple books I can't wait to read: A Beverly Cleary auto biography-never seen one before thought it might be a good read.
And a Year in Provence, which I am resiting reading until I finish the book I am currently reading, Radical Homemakers. This is a great read about the importance of someone being at home. It is really helping me figure out where I want to go in life.
