Thrifty Thursday #20

I haven’t done any thrifty shopping in 2 weeks….I would be lying if I said I wasn’t jonesing! I don’t really have the strength yet but man I’d really like do some thrift shop hoppin right about now! Right before I went in for surgery I did pop into one thrift shop and I found a couple things.
I found these pillows that were made from food sacks. One is a rolled oats sack and the other is a coffee sack. Someone already went through the trouble of making them pillows. I especially love the coffee one!!!
Within a few minutes into my shopping trip I spotted this bird cage. I had this overwhelming feeling that every person in the thrift store was going to see what I was seeing in that moment and there would be an all out brawl for it. I immediately grabbed it. It really was a public service, I didn’t want anyone getting hurt. Can you blame me? Isn’t it FAB U LOUS????
My daughter started school yesterday, the 1st grade.
She’s getting so big so fast.
Why do they have to grow so fast? She was pretty nervous to have a new teacher and new friends….by the end of the day she was holding her teachers hand and she had a huge smile on her face. I think she’s ready for 1st grade….I am not.
Linking up to these great link parties!!!
