My kids have gotten the idea of how fun it is to go with me to thrift shops.  They always get $1. to spend.  And thrift toys are really inexpensive!  My oldest has been looking for slot cars.  My seven year old will usually buy something carved from wood.  My girl will always buy a stuffed animal!  They crack me up.

But I have the most fun of all!  I buy fabric (and other stuff too!).  On Saturday I visited my favorite junk shop.  I haven't been there all summer.  But on Saturday, I totally scored with two chenille blankets, $15. for both.  One is for my girl's bed, and the other is for me to cut up!

My storage has been getting really full.  So I have started to destash and listing a few of my fabrics on my etsy shop.  Just three pieces of fat quarters so far.  I think I will be sharing some of my chenille soon too!

I love that pitcher. I so want to go to that pottery place in Lincoln and check them out. The only thing is, I can never decide what color to get in a store like that. Which is the great thing about thrift shops. There's usually only one of anything, and it's always a treasure.
