Thrifted Thursday-Life Lately

How come we are so motivated at the start of the New Year?  At the beginning of the month?  I had high hopes of putting up one of those great goals list..."resolutions", that I may never follow.  I still might.  It does feel good to write your goals down even if you don't stick to them.  I haven't been thrifting over the holidays.  Been too busy taking care of sick kids, cleaning, napping, and eating my weight in cookies, pies, cheese, dips and other super healthy foods.

I figured since it was Thursday I would go ahead and do a thrifting post...lucky for me most of the things in this photo were thrifted so I figured it counted.   The couch was thrifted for $70. It was not intended to last...just get us through until we move. Surprisingly we all kind of dig it. Unfortunately it's light enough for my daughter to move. Her new thing is "organizing". Which means rearranging furniture and relocating items all around the house to whatever spot she chose to "organize". It usually ends bad for someone. Either us or her depending on the day.  It's my fault. I'm ok with it. When she grows up it will come in handy I'm sure.

The blanket was thrifted/found...I can't remember which, but its been a staple in our home all year.  It stays in my trunk during the warm months for soccer and baseball practice.  The needlepoint I've had for a while. It's one of my favorites.  You can't see it very well but the end table was also thrifted. It has slots underneath for records.  

That's all I got. Hope your Christmas was amazing. Mine was the best.  My kids are at a great age where everything is extremely magical. My husband and I agreed not to get each other gifts.  We just re-did our kitchen floors so that was our gift.  Christmas morning he handed me a box of chocolates.  I looked him square in the eye and said "one of your customers gave you this didn't they"?  He really thought he could get away with it.  I took it to work the next day and we all shared them for breakfast.

If you haven't noticed I changed my banner to Wanderland Vintage (the name of my vintage and record shop).  I got sick of looking at my giant face everytime I logged on here, and I've been wanting to change it for a while.  Trying to find the time to get everything else on my blog fixed up and looking sharp for the New Year.  It's a work in progress so bear with me.  Hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, whatever it is you celebrate...and New Year.   xoxo, Amy

  1. I hate that my babies were sick :( The story about the chocolates cracks me up. Mike pulls that crap all the time! And, I don't know what you're talking about, I loved seeing your beautiful face every time I check out your blog.
