thrifty thursday!

A lot of good finds this week! We hit up some new flea markets, old lady garage sales, and the dollar store. That counts as thrifting, right? Okay, maybe just being thrifty. I don't know. I'm counting it. 
In order of appearance from top to bottom: 
Super cute vintage juice glasses: gift from sister in law, suitcase: gift from my friend, Ali, trunk: garage sale steal ($25). Which, by the way, used to be owned by one of Springfield's most famous artists, Robert E. Smith. See all that paint? He used to mix his paint right there! So dope (Isaac uses that phrase often).
 Old yard sticks. I needed them. Don't know why yet, but I did. ($2.50)
 Green leather duffle ($5) and pale green camping mug ($2). Two hoo-rahs for cool colors.
Isaac also snatched this up while at a garage sale. Flower pattern grandma chair for our reading corner ($5).
 This is where the dollar store comes in. See, I was shopping for some gift bags and well, then there was this cute hat sitting there. It was a dollar. One. Dollar. What else was I supposed to do? Not buy it? Pffff.

 Purse: thrifted ($1), scarf: gift from sister in law. She's the best. 

happy thrift-ventures!

When I first starting sewing all I had to use was an antique ruler! I love love that hat!
Great job; especially the chair.
