Thrift Desert

How did it get to be Thursday already? This week is zooming along. My thrift expeditions have been on the skimpy side the past few weeks. On the weekend before Easter last month there were two book sales in town. Mr. B and I went to one in the parking lot of one library on Saturday morning, then I went to bag day for the Houston Public Library the next afternoon at the big convention center. Aside from those, even checking neighborhood stores regularly has turned up few treasures. Here are some of this meager lot:
There are some of the haul from the Bellaire  sale, an old trimline phone, a small floral decorated tin filled with pastel candles, a jar (already had it) full of alphabet letters, a gold, crown-like metal bowl and a gorgeous bird ornament, now hanging in the living room with the other bird decor. 

I've also done some work in our bedroom after finally locating a decent quilt at Marshalls last week, when weeks of combing thrifts for one never paid off. Once Mr. B and I wrestle the mattress off to switch out the dust ruffle this weekend I'll take pictures in there where a few more finds have shown up to work with the new color scheme going on now.

Now, off to unload the dishwasher and reluctantly consider the dinner issue. 

Have a great evening!
