It's been a bookish week for me thrifting and that's about it. Seriously the things I liked were over priced and I just couldn't bring myself to buy one more thing I might not be able to sell. Or that I might not really want. Left myself with very little treasures and I'm fine with that. I don't need to thrift, necessarily!!, to live a thrifty life, I still find plenty of ways to save and be happy. If I had to give up thrifting entirely I would not be a happy camper, some weeks are better than ever. To me that's part of the thrill.
We have a leprechaun in our house. he lives here torturing us and being tortured by us from about mid February through equinox when the Queen of Spring banishes him to live outdoors and ride squirrels all summer. Most years it's been an all out war with him but this year sympathy has almost won out. He was first spotted attempting to steal tooth fairy money but since then he's been given a home in a small cabinet. An acorn bowl, a blanket, two pizza box tables(the little triangle from the middle of pizzas) and a little wine have been doled out too. I think boys might be trying to win him over and avoid the mayhem he creates trying to steal their money. I feel so blessed to be part of the magic, my boys live in.
So here is the leprechaun
and this is the cup I found for him this week.
Poor thing needs a little TLC, until he tries to make off with my wedding ring, then once again it will be war.
The books I found were pretty solid for selling. I mean that I believe each of them will sell and I will make money on them.
#1 Tacos on the Tundra, which I may not sell I might just pass it on, is about Pepe's Restaurant in Barrow-looking though it I immediately started reading and became engrossed and forgot I was writing....ahem
#2 is Mrs. Bridges Upstairs Downstairs Cookery Book--the only one listed on eBay is listed for 999.00 HA!! but I will list mine for a much more reasonable price probably with a start price of .99¢
#3 is The Easy Bake Oven Gourmet lots of great recipes to whip up in an easy bake oven with out having to buy those horridly expensive mixes
