settling in thrifty

Our third week here in Georgia found me exploring some of the odds and ends and thrift shoppes here to see what they had to offer.  I found a sweet little second hand shoppe in Brooklet (K's odds and ends) and there is a hoosier cabinet and a sweet vintage metal stool with a pull out stepladder that I have my eye on.  will definitely be making a trip back there :)  I'm compiling a list of things to look out for as a explore...the biggest being a vintage dining room hutch...I can see it in my mind....never know, may come upon something i love.  stepladders, cloches, hanging lanterns, a pie safe...the list is growing by the minute.  Now this may seem to be going against my grain of simplicity...but I'm trying to keep it for decorative/useful purposes only.  Not nick/nack stuff, more storage and utilitarian needs...

visited the Goodwill today in Statesboro....and found these things.....


sweet little summer dresses for emmy


a few cool dresses for me...this one's reversible and i love the pattern :)


a cute little lantern that i can picture hanging in the tree out front
casting a pretty light onto the darkened yard...


side table...not much to look at now, but i have plans for this....
remember how it looks now and when i finish it i'll post a pic :)
a deal at $12 for what it's going to become...

campfire


***********



across the street they are burning the woods....it smells like a
giant campfire outside!  i understand they do this to prevent fires in the summer months...
a little scary, but there were two guys tending to it all day....

happy thursday to you..
i start work tomorrow. 
i'm forty-one years old and still worried if I will fit in!  ha!

blessings!
