Thrifted Sunday

Well my thrifting time was very limited this week due to our school getting ready to open and spending as much time as possible with my sons. When I started to feel a little sad about Union starting school the boys would get a in tussle and suddenly I didn't feel too sad. And Hero is a senior and will graduate at semester.
I'm so proud of this boy. He was pretty much deemed a loser by the local high school and was left to fall through the cracks. I looked for another school and came up with an alternative school. In one year he made up for 2 years of failure and he's actually graduating at semester. He was not a loser, high school just didn't fit him!
Like I said my thrifting time was limited but of course I did get out. My mother gave me this beautiful little sail boat quilt she bought at the BARN SALE. I didn't see her buy it but she thought my boys might like it. Their mother certainly does!!

Then I found this beautiful vintage Baret Ware tray at my favorite haunt. I love trays! And they are hard to come by. I snatched this right up.

Then I found some great books, 2 for kids:





and a SkiJor book with a foreword by Susan Butcher, the great Alaskan Dog Musher.

And 2 beautiful sets of sterling silver cufflinks:



These are presents so don't tell!!

  1. I'm a sucker for trays too and that is definitely a nice one.

    My husband was deemed a loser too and the school system didn't give a flip about him either so he dropped out his sophomore year. He eventually did do back to school and we graduated together but I hate that the school systems let that happen to good students. Aggravates the heck out of me. I'm proud of your son too!
