I have had a few great days shopping at Value Village. Yesterday I found 4 incredible dishes that set me back a whopping $4.48 with tax. I am not posting a picture (yet) as I haven’t decided where they will wind up. Suffice it to say that they will make someone, somewhere, very happy.
I returned today, often I find that if I get a good score one day, it’s smart to return the next day just to check and see if more of that particular donors collection has been priced. Well, I was somewhat disappointed on that end, no more of that set, boo hoo, but I did get a new sugar bowl that will probably live in my sewing area and hold safety pins. Now, correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t this pattern my parent’s wedding dish pattern? I think maybe. It’s not the fanciest or prettiest pattern out there but I still like it a lot. It’s got a really lovely Canadian feel to it, autumn maple leaves and keys tumbling down. There are more dishes, both dinner and salad sized, I might go back.
I also got this super, SUPER, awesome pillow case today. It’s Marimekko and it’s so cute. Big and square. It will get folded up and stacked with the rest of my precious vintage bedding. Can’t complain for 99c.
Now. I’m sure everyone is wondering why I basically don’t blog any more. And I’m also sure that if you try you’d be able to figure it out. If not, here is the simple answer: I really only like to blog when I’m feeling good and that feeling is hard to come by these days. Twitter is easier, I don’t feel bad constantly complaining and bitching there, I just don’t want this to turn into that. I know everyone is understanding and patient.
