Breaking News - New Cold Remedy Really Taking Off

I woke up yesterday with a sore throat.  I don't know about you, but sore throat and sunny weather just don't mix.  It's still fighting to take me down, but it's nothing a little tea and thrifting won't fix.  What?!  Shopping doesn't fix your colds?

Here's what I picked up today...

Three-Piece Pier1 Outdoor Cushion Set for under $4.50

Yellow basket,  Wooly Mammoth and...wait for it...Anthropologie Zinc Letter.  Who would drop this at GW?  My imagination thinks that the owner was dating a "J" and things didn't quite work out.  Thanks for the letter "J" and sorry about that nasty breakup.  Don't worry, there's more fish out in the sea.  Chin up.  Now, be gone with you...I'm relishing in my thrifty finds.

Wire Storage Baskets

Basket to replace plastic wastebasket in bathroom

Adjustable Arm Lamp

Desk Task Lighting - 2 lamps

Vintage Lunch Box - Perfect for my Father's Day gift basket...stay tuned!

This little trip sure did put a little pep in my step!  Stay tuned to see how I use and/or revamp these items. 



  1. I'd be feeling better, too, after finding all of that great stuff! I love the lunch box - my dad carried one just like it- and I can't wait to see what you do with the mammoth??? !!!!

    1. Oh, I have dreams of giving that mammoth a little spray paint bath but sadly, my little one picked it out and loves it. Guess I'll just have to be patient and wait until he's not interested in it anymore.

  2. Oh I love the lunch box. Fantastic!
