This summer is flying by much too quickly. In fact, I was almost in tears today when I saw the back to school supplies out at the local drug store. Really, can we not just enjoy the month of July before we have to prep for school? #dreadingit
We just got back from a vacation with my 4 brothers and their families and it was the best! I am so sad that it is over. I cannot even put into words how great this beach trip was for all of us! I am happy that my boys were able to spend time with my side of the family. I hope we can do it again next year!
I was actually able to hit up a few thrift/antique stores and a Goodwill while on vacation. I picked up a few fun things for the Gman for his birthday in August. I will share those later.
Today has been a day of getting back on track after almost a month of traveling. I went to the gym this morning and I treated myself to some thrift shopping afterwards. I scored big today, for me anyway!
My scores at the Thrift Store
I am always on the hunt for white dishes and serving ware. Today I picked up two large pieces that were originally from Potterybarn. I scored a large serving bowl and a large platter.
I also found a white planter for my little Olive Tree. I have always wanted an Olive Tree. I am not sure how long this one is going to last. He was looking a little droopy when we got home from the beach.
I also scored two corning ware bowls that are range top, oven and microwave safe. These bowls are so convenient for the day to day meals and snacks. I think I now have a total of 6 of these bowls that I have picked up over time.
Lastly, I am sharing another cloche. When I first saw it, I thought it would look good on the book case in my home office. It was another thing that I walked by and thought, if it is still there when I am done searching the rest of the shop, I will pick it up. It was there and it was 50% off…I spent a whopping $2 on it.
I keep adding little bits to my bookcase. I need to post another update on the styling of it. I keep the base objects the same and just add or rearrange the rest. It is hands down my favorite DIY that my husband and I have done together.
Well, that is all for today. I hope you have enjoyed a glimpse into my thrifting adventures.
Until Next Time,
