fun stuff from the THRIFT and other stuff
so I really wanted to go to the Bloomington Flea Market today, but I chickened out since I really did not have anyone to go with me.
(i shoulda gone, I shoulda gone, I shoulda gone) maybe next month.
so I decided to stay close to home and just wash and relax and take a few pics of some of my favorite recent finds. I got these bangles at the mall last week. I am not really a mall person but since I was so close I decided to take a quick walk and found these wonderful flowered bangles. I have been on a flower kick lately.
A week and a 1/2 ago when I went to visit my mother we decided to run to her local thrift store on 60 something and Kedzie... I LOVE THAT PLACE. I have been going there since I discovered it oh many years ago. Always find the best stuff there. I found this wonderful white plate with gold rim shown here. I will use it to hold my favorite jewelery pieces.
I also found some wonderful kitchen towels and two beautiful new pillow cases by Laura Ashley. I think I pd around 80 cents for the plate, and barely nothing for the kitchen towels and pillow cases. I also found a Laura Ashely quilted flowerly tote bag, actually I found two and my mom was so funny - one for you and one for me..... of course I had to give her one of them at $1.80 they were a steal.... brought everything home and washed everybit of it and it all looked just like new. I love that store and maybe on Tuesday since I am off I will try to go visit.
Hopefully I will have good luck there again this week.
