I don't get everything from thrift stores.

Sometimes I buy things off Craigslist. I'm excited to get it all sanded, primed and painted!


And not everything I buy at thrift stores is for decorating. Look at this cute pair of shoes I found for Lorelai. Normally shoes are on the do-not-buy-at-thrift-stores list for me, but this time, at $0.99.....how could I NOT? They were in great condition and a size too big for her. She'll fit into them by next week!post signature

Lexie had those shoes! I loved them!

I keep wondering where all this stuff you keep finding is going to fit in your house? You have to show us placement, etc.

Sand on with your bad self!

hannah has those shoes in black with the pink. She loves them and they fit her fat little feet. Ours were hand me downs and they like yours look great.

This really has nothing to do with your current post. Is that cute little girl on your header you? Do you really sit around blogging wearing a pencil skirt and addorable flats? Most of the time if I actualy blog in pants without a drawstring I am doing good! Of course I don't want you imagine me blogging the way I really look so when you imagine me blogging could you please imagine me in really cute jeans, a long sleeved t shirt and a adorable scarf. (you know angie of bring the rain has named this the year of the scarf) And when I imagine you posting I will imagine you just like the girl on your header. ;)

Hey, mayo will take those stickers off! I saw it on How Clean Is Your House?

Shoes for littles ones at the thrift store are fine. I draw the line at undegarments.

and i'm with brenda-- no undergarments-- except maybe those black hand-crocheted ones you picked up a few weeks ago. ha!

I'm with you on the shoes. They're cute, though.

There was a lady on Good Morning America this morning (after that segment I rolled over and went back to sleep!) that was wearing, head to toe, thrift store clothes. All I could think was, "She's wearing thrift-store shoes with no socks. What kind of toe fungus/foot disease is she contracting???"

There's definitely an Ick factor there.

Hey! Someone from Victoria Texas visited your blog. That is where my MIL lives.

Love the dresser and shoes too! Don't forget to post AFTER pics!

Sarah had those exact same shoes last year. I think I loved them more than she did. They are adorable and at $.99 - who cares where you got them!

Cant wait to see an after pic of the chest. I like to look for good deals but I really don't know much about redoing furniture.

I LOVE craigslist, though. I have bought a LOT on there for Trey!
