a random post.

Blogging has really taken a backseat these days. I don't know if I have gotten lazier, or if life has just ever so subtly gotten busier. Perhaps it's because we've had such gorgeous weather and we are taking advantage of every single second of it!
Even in all the busyness of life I have managed to do some thrifting and shopping. A girls gotta have priorities right? Right. Glad we all agree:)
Here are some random pictures.

If you know Preston you know he LOVES vacuums. It's one of his many quirks. I've been looking at thrift stores for a used one, with no luck. Yesterday I was at Grocery Outlet and I found this. A little vacuum that REALLY works. He vacuumed ALL night long, so happy. This morning he woke up at 6:00 am and yelled "Mom! I wanna vacuum."

Do you know Atticus? If not, you need to. It's the cutest store/coffee shop downtown. More about this print below.

A thrift store find. I wanted a globe, but this will do for now:)O

Ok, so about this prints. Atticus has a little book section where I found a 16X18 book of "Home Sweet Home decorative prints" by Suzy Ultman. Caaaa-ute! I was really excited. I love this look. You will have to excuse the glare though. I was really proud of myself-I was trying to be thrifty when I was looking for frames and I got these 4 for $14 (because they were 16X20) instead of spending $54 and getting the exact size. I just put an inch of scrapbook paper on the ends to make it work.

Another thrift store find. Cute little chairs. And they're orange:) I got these for a whopping $2 ea. There are more if you want your own at Classy Rack on Boone! :)

I've wanted a country/field/barn scene picture for a while. I found this barn pictures who $0.99
Did you notice the name on the barn in the picture above? Yes, this one was made for me! And for less than a dollar I couldn't pass it up.

Has anybody ever gone to this? Anybody want to go?

I love finding little trinkety things that give a splash of color here and there! I've been into yellow lately. A while ago it was orange, but now I've moved on:)

Oh, and one day Preston dressed up the cat. Enough said.
Well that about sums it up. Has anyone else gone thrifting lately? I'd love to hear about your good finds!
