This blanket caught my eye, it was HUGE and made out of wool. Wasn't sure what I could use it for. Love the little pompom detail and the colors. Salvation Army.

  1. I don't know how you don't buy all of the things you find... I wouldn't be able to hold back!! Those giraffe cups and that blanket with pompoms are so adorable and perfect :)


  2. ahhh I haven't thrifted in a while and this post made me feel like I just thrifted, felt so good! Haha.
    I'll have to plan to go this weekend. I love your finds, especially the old children's book & that chair. Eek!

  3. whoa you found some good stuff there! I would've had a hard time holding back, especially with the furniture!


What's up?

*Had to turn word verification on (even though I personally hate it). I've been getting too many weird spambot comments lately :(
