Thrifty & Nifty


Last week was a long one. A lot of our 'regularly scheduled programming' was canceled due to illnesses and the like. Luckily my kiddo was up for tagging along with me on a bunch of errands to break up the days.

One of my favorite things to do - ever - is to go junk shopping or antiquing. I don't even need to buy anything. I just love looking at old stuff, the colors, the shapes, the design, the weirdness; it totally inspires me. So I decided to combine two of my loves - time with my kiddo + junk shopping. It was a huge success.

I came home with two fun items, this "Big Top" soda bottle will make a nice vase for spring flowers. I couldn't pass up this postcard book celebrating the Ohio Turnpike - I love the layout of the postcards, the horrible photography, and the little tiny photos of the postcard images "for your memory book". Because who wouldn't want to remember the glorious "FUEL & FOOD" signs of the "World's Most Modern Superhighway" ?
