Thrift finds.

In this new year with a move lurking in the next few months, and the hunt for a new home to shelter in, we have spent a lot of time purging and packing in preparation for this event. There are a couple other reasons also, but we won't go there. We are in a position where we are having to protect from two intrusions from a neighbor. When renting you have to be prepared for many things, but these were something we thought of, but never expected. So naive of us. This past week we filled a few more bags with donations and went to drop them off. In doing so we  were given a 30% off coupon to use on our next purchase. With time to spare before our next errand we decided to look around. There were good purchases and we were very selective knowing it would have to be packed to move or quickly listed for sale on line.

We found several vintage sheets, some vintage salt and pepper shakers, some collectible plates and a wall plaque for our new home. 

There were a dozen wide mouth quart size canning jars that we eagerly scooped up and after the 30% off coupon they ended up being free. I've already filled a few and the rest are waiting for my creativity in the kitchen. It feels good knowing that when I have the room to work in a larger kitchen and a space for storage everything I need will be at hand. Thank you universe and thank you for stopping by for a visit. Have a great week and wonderful weekend.
