Today has been a nice and peaceful day here in our home. I don’t take care of any children on Friday, so it is just a Mommy & Cameron day. I love it when I can just spend time with Cameron. We have such a close knit relationship and he is my thrift store shopping buddy. Yep, I have him set to go thrift store shopping with me every Friday and would you know that we haven’t found any goodies lately!! I found a pewter pitcher a couple weeks ago, but that is about it. Hmmm, perhaps I found and purchased everything (lol). I did see an old antique type of table on Tuesday, but when I went back today, it was gone. I thought it had GREAT potential, but I just didn’t have the money for it then. Disappointing – huh? I was pretty upset, but then after I thought about it….. I had no idea where I would have put it. They did have some very old and neat trunks there, but I have one from my husband’s Mom and I am getting one from my Mom this weekend, so I didn’t need another. They also had a hope chest, but I didn’t need one of those either. I just wish they had some smaller items for me.
So, we are leaving to go visit my parents tomorrow morning and I can’t wait. I enjoy visiting with them, but Mom plans on putting me to work, so I am just not sure I am super excited about going this time (lol). Mom wants to have a garage sale within the next couple weeks so we are going to help her weed through her totes and get stuff ready for the garage sale. She told me that I could have anything I wanted and the other stuff I didn’t want would go in the sale. I am taking 3 empty totes with me in hopes of filling them up (hahaha). My Mom also told me that I am able to take her parents old trunk home with me and I am absolutely thrilled about that. She told me to just take anything and everything in it which really means alot to me. It has tons of old pictures and a few antiques and a flag that my Mom received when my Grandpa (her Dad) passed away. I am sentimental so when it comes to me receiving those items….. well, I am just touched beyond measure. Have any of you ever made a keepsake box for a flag that was given to you? I would love to make a box for it and display it, but yet I want the box to be prim and match my decor too. I can’t wait to share some of these treasures with all of you. I personally can’t wait to get the trunk full of treasures and memories and just spend hours going through them and enjoy looking at everything. Nothing better then reminiscing about your family.
Well, I had to post a picture of my pewter pitcher that I purchased. It was only $2.29 so I thought that was a pretty good deal. Hopefully I will be able to find some more goodies soon. I just hate going there and leaving with nothing (lol). Have a wonderful weekend my prim friends!
