oh yes indeedy!
it has been a while has it not, since i did a 'thrifty thursdays' ramble.
indeed it would be quite true to say
it has been a while since i went to the thrift store,
a whole six days...
i think that shows great willpower on my behalf.
of course now the 'great show of willpower' thought has popped into my head this morning,
i can think of nothing else than leaving the shed
and heading to the thrift store.
i've actually started
rubbing my hands
pulling my hair.
i am now relying upon every ounce left of my 'willpower' reserves
to stay rooted in the shed.
so let us not dwell on the thought of what lovely finds could be waiting for me
but instead focus on my last adventure to the thrift store.
it was a perfectly perfect thrifty adventure
full of fabby forsaken finds...
if you asked my man he would tell you otherwise,
but we are not going to ask him
for we do not want to spoil our 'thrifty thursdays' post
with 'bah humbuggers' of the thrifty kind.
as i entered the thriftstore
with $15 in my hand
i found many a forsaken little soul looking for a happy home
a nest of russian dolls
who obviously have something bothering them
but they haven't told me what
always a favorite find for me
a pair of sprightly salt and pepper pots
who have seen many sights in their lifetime
a little wooden monkey looking for a new nose
(and of course we know had a very long journey to find it)
a red tin bowl, just like one i already own
but it would have been insanity to leave it behind
a pretty summer straw basket,
rather battered in a perfect vintagey way
as soon as i saw it, i went off into my imagination,
thinking of the lovely summery thoughts that come from owning such a straw bag.
upon leaving the thrift store that evening,
i pondered a thought...
indeed it was quite true to say
i was now $15 poorer than an hour before
without a doubt
i now felt so much richer than an hour ago.
i'm thinking i am probably not alone with that thought...
