vintage, vintage, vintage!

I don't know if I've ever shared that I love thrifting.  LOVE it.  I love finding a deal and a new nicknack.  I must say that our thrift stores are a little sparse in this city.  Ever since Value Village got expensive.  Honestly, who pays $15.99 for a USED throw pillow.  Not I.  Nope, Good Will has my heart now.  Here are my finds from this week:




This bunny used to be brown and had red eyes.  It was scary looking.  A fresh coat of white paint and it looks darn cute in Zoey's nursery. 

And what I didn't post is that I found 3 pairs of pants for Zoey and 3 new books all for $1.99 a piece.  Score! 

This weekend we are escaping to the mountains.  Well, Arden is going to the mountains.  This man has been itching to snowboard all winter.  I will be drinking copious amounts of homemade lattes while Zoey hams it up with friends.  Oh, did I mention that girl only slept 45 minutes all day?  Mercy.  Hence the lattes.

Be well out there!

That bunny is adorable! You should check out the Hope Mission Thrift Store (91st Street, just north of Ellerslie). I don't know about the clothes, but I've found a few decor treasures there ;-)

I have no luck when it comes to thrifting. I definitely admire those who can find such great things. Although, baby and kids clothing is easier to come by. I think that bunny looks great after it's makeover. Hopefully Zoey's naps become a bit more consistent, though homemade lattes are delicious.
