Sick + Me = Misery

Came down with the flu last week. Hit me Thursday night and I was in bed....... are you ready? " Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday, got up Tuesday morning to go into work to prepare payroll, went to the doctors then went back to bed". Whew, what a blur it all was. I guess I contracted a virus so the doctor tells me to go home and go to bed and let it run its course........I needed one of these............
Well BEFORE I got sick, I had an opportunity to hit up the local Salvation Army. Now if you read my blog you might think that's all I do is " Thrift Shop" but I don't. I seize the opportunity when I have an hour here or there or most often on my lunch hour. I work full time and I am a mother to a very sweet and busy 10 year old boy. Karate lessons start for him in a few weeks so I will be rushing from work to get him to his lessons on time. In addition, I am wife to the best man whom I love with all my heart and I must be home to make dinner and clean up the kitchen. He works so hard for our family, I want him to ALWAYS feel valued beyond measure.
Here are some of my sweet little treasures. I just couldn't pass up the Tea Pot dry erase memo board. It was $4.00 and it has a little chip in it at the bottom on the right side but I didn't notice it right away, and I am hoping nobody else
I just LOVE LOVE LOVE these vintage cook booklets. I started collecting them and will share my little stash in another post. My husband and I have agreed that we are going to remodel the kitchen after the holidays are over and it is going to be all vintage. Now I don't really like the 1950's malt shop theme, I mean more like 1950's housewife-stay-at-home-June Cleaver type kitchen. I will fill it with love and with my touches and of course with lots and lots of homemade baked goods. I love to bake and my husband just can't get enough of my cakes, cookies, pies and treats. I already have a lot of vintage items we have bought along the way put away for our remodel.
These sweet little linen napkins were $1.00 and I just couldn't pass them up. The seafoam green wicker basket was $.50 and will probably be painted white at the first chance I get.
That sums it up for me!

This Cherub Duo will become one with white also. Last but not least is this little number I found at the Swap Meet. I was not really in the mood for it, my husband wanted to go a couple of weeks ago and it was so hot outside but I said "Ok just for a little while". Well just a little while and $10.00 later, I was the happy happy owner of this little vintage overnight bag. Its sooooooo sweet and so very very ME!

When I got it home, I found this little guy inside. Maybe he was placed in there by mistake or maybe it was "just my luck"! Either way, I consider it a good good day!

Have a great rest of the week and of course a beautiful weekend.

Debbie, I'm sorry to hear that you've been so sick. I hope you're back in the pink very soon!

So sorry to hear you have been sick. There have been some nasty things going around this summer. And it's summer. What's with that. I love those little books too. I have one that is all avocado recipes and one entitled "Pies Men Like." What a hoot.

Your thrifty finds are fabulous!

Take care, ~Natalie
