Thrift Finds

Here are some of my favorite thrift finds as of late. Most of the clothes and shoes I've found are going straight into the store but these black t-strap flats and brown woven sandals with wooden heels found their way into my closet. Speaking of closet, these two silly little vintage oil paintings from Goodwill are going to be hung on my closet walls. Last but certainly not least, I'm sure you'll be seeing lots of this brown leather bag. It has turquoise and white woven details and is just the type of Native American inspired accessory I've been searching for.

Today's adventures took me to the Salvation Army. I found a pair of high waisted Gloria Vanderbilt jeans that I'm hoping will become my new favorite jeans. In the world of non-clothing finds, I stumbled upon a small collection of antique wooden sewing spools (some with the thread still on them) and scooped them up right away. When I got to the cash register, the lady working behind the counter asked me what they were. I told her and she said that someone else had just bought a whole bunch of them. Argh! At least I got what was left. I'll try to take some photos of them for you.

Yesterday was supposed to be the official start of summer and the day definitely lived up to that. The temperatures reached over 80 degrees. While we were out exploring on this beautiful day, we discovered this empty Amish farm. The entire place is for sale and they were having an open house. We were even able to go inside the early 19th century Victorian farmhouse. As I was wandering around the vast rooms, I began to fantasize about buying it and fixing it up. But those dreams were quickly dashed when I looked around and remembered that there was not even any electricity in the house. It was an Amish house after all.

We spent yesterday afternoon at a family picnic in the park. It was such a beautiful day to be outside. We put pennies on the train tracks, made clover bracelets and discovered a nest of baby birds in the gazebo.

I never really know what the weather is going to be like these days. One second it's sunny and warm, the next it's cool and breezy. I layered up to walk to the Farmer's Market but ended up ditching the sweater and scarf.

The last couple of days we've had visitors from Alabama staying with us. We've been running around town doing fun touristy things like visiting the Hans Herr House and feeding the (baby!) horses, riding the Strasburg Railroad, eating ice cream at the creamery and playing mini golf. Hmmm... maybe we should have visitors more often!
