Hi ho the merry-o, a thrifting we will go....

All of this for just a little over $100. Almost all of it is waiting for its spray paint bath.

Don't knock the puke and vomit greens. I was thinking of keeping it that way. What'ya think?

Just kidding, I didn't buy the hat, but I was shocked it was for sale. For $3 nonetheless.

I SO want to go thriftin' with you! Our thrift stores here don't have ANYTHING fun like that. :( Oh and how could you pass up buying that hat? Come on!! lol

Yeah, about the Prada bag. I knew someone would notice I didn't mention the price. I didn't want the 'cheap' peeps to throw virtual rocks at me. hehehe

Tell me again why you didn't by that hat???

I love that chest of drawers (looks like sturdy wood) and that bookcase. Why can I so see potential in something but never know how to go about it? Tuning in here to see more of your work so I can do what you do. :)

BUY that hat. BUY.

3 dollars for that hat huh? WHY? :)

I even like the greens. In the right space? But I'm kind of clueless!

I kind of like the green dresser as is...maybe with new handles. You have a knack for turning old into new!

Are the two pieces of furniture gonna end up in Lorelai's room, or do they have another destination in mind? GREAT PIECES.

Wow, you ROCK at thrift stores! Can I go with you sometime?! I love everything yo bought--but I can only think of one thing: my husband! He'd KILL me if I brought all that stuff home! Seriously, I'd get the reprimand of my life!! How do you get away with it? Oh, and yes, the hat is a must. My aunt would really wear that...
(By the way, thank you for the email! I'll write you back soon! Three day weekend for us coming up!)
