OH my gosh ohmygoshohmygosh!
I just got back from a quick lunch-time trip to a new (to me) thrift store and I scored BIG!
So exciting! I had a coupon for a bag of clothes for $4 and I filled that sucker up! Actually I totally could have fit more in the bag, but my lunch hour was almost up so I stuffed a few more items in and headed out.
I counted how many pieces I got (17) and the cost comes out right at a quarter a piece. !!!!
There was no definite style or piece I was looking for, but I have gotten quite a few cute new skirts and need some shirts to go with them. So I pretty much went down all of the aisles and just grabbed anything that caught my eye. I must be feeling flowy things lately because I ended up with a lot of silk. Seven shirts and one tank top in ALL colors. Oh what am I going to do with these goodies?! (sorry crappy phone pic)
Fuchsia, tangerine, lime, hunter, a REALLY pretty cobalt, and lilac. A rainbow of possibilities. I’m thinking maybe some kind of maxi skirt? Wouldn’t that be comfortable?! Might have to get my MIL involved if I take on anything more involved than a simple snip and stitch. We’ll see!
I also got a cute black wool skirt, a few tank tops, some fun print button ups, and a pair of comfy pants for bumming around. I’ll put up “before” pics tonight when I get home and have a real camera.
Oh the excitement!
Well I am ready to get back into some more regular blogging. Hubs and I have been quite occupied with a variety of things lately. The largest of those being the purchase of a new house/property and selling our current home.
The great news is that we have buyers for our home and I am just about 100% sure that they are going to LOVE it here as much as we have. It is truly going to be a bittersweet move for us. We have put a lot of ourselves into this house and it is going to be hard to leave it behind. BUT we are moving to an awesome new place. Well, it will be awesome once we get done with it!
Like this house, our new one is structurally sound – just needs to be updated and whoopy doopied. :) (totally a verb) We are making all sorts of plans in our heads as to what we are going to do out there – move some rooms around, open it up. First things first though – CLEANING and PAINTING. Oh the joys…will put up pics of the new place soon. We are scheduled to close FRIDAY!
Being busy has largely kept me out of the gardens – which makes me grateful that I have taken a super low maintenance approach to the landscaping and gardens around the house. They look great – especially after the last bout of rain we had. At any rate, the rhubarb has been left to grow wild and I haven’t harvested it. I was telling everybody how big the leaves have gotten, but it is hard to actually get the point across so hubby and I took some snaps with a few leaves in the backyard today after work. (He is such a good sport – and a real cutie pie too!)
Are you impressed with the size?
Surely you must be.
They are really gigantic rhubarb leaves! Ginormous. Humongous. Extraordinarily large. Exciting!
A few summers ago we used rhubarb leaves to make some stepping stones in the garden. The veins on the leaves are really big and veiny so they work really well.
I am looking forward to starting new gardens at our acreage…we should be able to squeeze some plants in somewhere on our 24 acre plot of dreamland, right?
