thrifty saturday...

Pretty typical Saturday morning stop for me - our local thrift store.  Today, I hit the jackpot! I picked up two vintage Pyrex bowls to add to my collection and the cutest little lilies of the valley jar.  The lilies of the valley I plan on using for coffee...its just way too cute!
I sadly walked away from 3... yes THREE other Pyrex bowls.  2 were identical to ones I already have (but love) and the other was not quite in the condition I wanted for the price.  PLUS... I'm gonna need to get me a whole other cabinet to start keeping these in before too long.  Needless to say, it was an exciting and worth while thrift day!

I love old things and their history.  I always feel like I'm filling our home with others' great memories... adding them to our own, some how letting those that have gone before us live on along side of us.  Sounds silly and maybe creepy to some, I know.  But I treasure history, old things, and the stories {even if i make them up, HA!} that go along with those things.

In example, I have so many things that have been passed down to me from my grandparents.  I cannot put a value on these pieces... I view my thrift pieces as someone's treasures & may be that someone didn't have anyone to pass them down to.  So, I will gladly take them as my own and treasure them as if they had been placed in my care from my own grandparents ♥  & yes, that is why I love thrifting & old things ♥
