The first thing you have to understand is as a family we move. A Lot. I have no business liking old stuff. Just saying “old stuff” gives me adrenaline… imagine all this old cool stuff that no one makes anymore.
I’m not trying to be a greaseball and make you swoon over my thrifty goods. To be truthful the thrifting here pretty much stinks 80% of the time. Think something like Goodwill sale rack after it’s already been picked through. That's how it usually is.
When my husband sees me pull in the drive with old chairs stacked about he kind of gets a nervous tic. But because he is nice he smiles and says things like “NICE!” and “WOW” as he unloads everything. I made him strawberry shortcake later. From scratch mind you. Not the kind with the little twinkie like cakes that are made with ingredients with big words. Gee whiz.
This table made me do a do dah dance. Remember this post? If I were Anne of Green Gables when I bought it I would have said something deliciously romantic like how I’ve waited my whole life for this moment.
Dear friends, I shared many things with you today. Take these thoughts and do good things with them. The sun will shine. The sky will be bluer than blue…the good you do will reciprocate off those around you and the world will be better for it. Until next time…. (I’m still Anne)
*a special thanks to Alicia for the inspiration to read A of Green Gables again. It’s still really good.
