Oh, hi. Long time no post, I know. This would be because I am busy and not feeling altogether great. Rheumatoid arthritis does that to you, and with 5 active kids (4 being homeschooled and one busy graduate living here), caring for my family is about as much as I can handle.
I did want to share about a recent trip to the thrift store. I spent a total of 54 cents - woo! I found a lovely vintage tin and a little book on weather facts (DK Pocket-Size Weather Facts, to be precise). The tin was priced at $1 and the book at $.50, and it really took me a while to figure out why I paid so little, but alas, the Wedgewood-y blue and white tin was disguising itself as a Christmas item, and those were all 75% off. The books are always half off as well, hence 25 cents each. Nice!
Where else can you go to get the shoppies out of your system for 54 cents? And I am always so thrilled to add to my collection of vintage tins. And books. Have you ever seen a homeschooling family's bookshelves? I mean, seriously folks, come on.
Merry, merry Christmas!
