Blerg.... Obviously, a novice.
Most likely, you know what I mean. Nothing mind-blowing was found, but it was just a pleasant day. Thrifting, listening to 80's music, coffee in hand, alone, it was bliss. This particular day yielded some great fabric (which is now in the wash) and some really simple, pretty white dishes. My latest obsession is finding white dishes. I just love them. Fun to look for, inexpensive, and go with everything.
I am not the sort of thrift shopper who often sees something huge, the perfect thing, and calls Peter, pleading to bring the bigger car. (I don't think he would even come, maybe I should try sometime.) In fact, he's always a little apprehensive of what I might bring home, since our mantra these days is "get rid of it if we don't use it".
But I do enjoy making him think I've completely lost my mind when I'm thrifting.
By sending him pictures of things I find that are ever so slightly wrong, but oh so right.
I love my Iphone for the sheer ability to send a little panic Peter's way while he's working.
Here's our exchange from the other day-
Me: "I just found the coolest lamp ever! Wooden, prob handmade, so confusing its perfect! Look!"
Me: "If it works?.. its mine!!!!"
Peter: "What for????"
Me: "Um, light! What do u mean? Are you looking at it? Its crazy!"
(few minutes later)
Me: "Sorry to disappoint, doesn't work. Damn!"
(later, next store)
Me: "Look, even better!"
Peter: "Do NOT bring that home!!"
I just wanted you guys to see what you have missed showing up here at the wise craft house.
Who would even need another decoration for Christmas when you've got that, that, that thing up there?? I ask you.
