{thrifting} on a whim

This morning started out with Lorelai asking to paint.

She didn’t just ask to paint, she asked if she could paint a picture for me.

How could I say no?!

Ryan left for a business trip and about 30 minutes after he left the house I got this e-mail from him:

“Did I really leave my phones at home?”

Yes. Yes, he did leave his phones at home.

So, the kids and I were quickly out the door to Fed Ex.

Since we were already dressed and in the car I figured we should swing by a couple of thrift stores we hadn’t been to in a while.

We found some stuff…

hoops, pyrex, a wooden step ladder…

a Yahtzee from 1975, a red colander for plants, a globe…

milk glass bowl with a beautiful flower pattern from Germany, a yellow Samsonite train case with the key…

and some very cool vintage suitcases.

home is…deciding to do something “on a whim”.

    my very first thrift store buy for our home was a globe. I was just thinking I’d like to buy another, but I haven’t seen any since!
