Pink Thrift Store Finds

It's been a bad week.  Just a bad week.
So it was not hard talking Ted into taking
a day off from work to go to a teacher meeting
with me and then spend the day together. 
After the meeting we went out for
breakfast and then spent the morning
thrifting.  (I'm so easy to please!) 
Here are some of the finds:
 Loving this pink trash can!
Doesn't it look like a locker?
This is going into Mary's room.
 I also spotted this very pink
Christmas tree.  Oreo's already
chewing on the branches.
 Some very talented Etsy artists use these
 miniature tins to create some 
gorgeous ornaments
and wall hangings.  I may have
to try it out myself.
 Miniature angels - only about 2 inches
high, except for the old Fontanini in the back.
 All playing musical instruments. 
 An ornament and this Nativity stamped
Italy on the back.
 Old Fontanini angel. 
 Probably my favorite - a chippy
chalkware angel, most likely
from Germany.
So glad we took advantage
of the gorgeous day since it looks
like it's about to downpour.
It's extremely rare Ted and I ever
spend any time alone together.
This was definitely a 'God-ordained"
day we both needed.


  1. It sounds like it was a much needed day of togetherness.
