Thrifty Finds!

Wednesday, July 7, 2010

Happy Wednesday! 
It's kind of weird saying that,  today is my Monday.  Since Kevin had Monday and Tuesday off of work, I took off too. I love short work weeks!

Last night we saw The Smashing Pumpkins. It experience. Haha. I'm coming to realize I'm not really the concert going type. Between beer flying, really foul PDA, hot smelly people closer than you'd ever want and two horrendous opening bands I was glad to get home at the end of the night. I did enjoy seeing The Smashing Pumpkins play, especially since we were pretty darn close to the stage. The last time we saw them we were reeeeally far back, and in assigned seating. (lame!)

The rest of the weekend was fun too! We went kayaking with my parents which was a blast. And of course, much thrifting was done! I got the cutest set of mugs!
two really pretty plates!
a saucepan!
a new bag for my bowling ball!
and a picture of knittin' kitten!

I also found a really neat little camera...with a brand new roll of film inside it! I really hope the pictures I've taken so far are going to turn out awesome.

SO, the giveaway... I'm so sorry it had to be postponed. I'm pretty sure the comments are still being weird. But I am keeping a close eye on it as soon as I find out all is back to normal I will repost the giveaway!

Well that's all for now, I have lots of work to catch up on. Have a wonderful day!


  1. Amazing finds, as usual! :)
    Smashing Pumpkins, huh? Sounds interesting!! I used to really like them!

  2. haha im the same way! I used to love going to shows but now its just too hot, too sticky and i get too tired. Maybe we're getting old haha.

    my mom has that same saucepan by the way! I think our parents/grandparents must have all bought the same cooking/dining collections for sears and macys back in the day.

  3. I love all the stuff you found! So cute!

  4. kat ann, that's awesome! i have a matching frying pan and bowl too, it's fun searching for the whole set!

  5. That sauce pan is adorable!

  6. These are great finds, especially the mug set.

    And you just summed up why my bf and I don't really go to concerts that much anymore lol!

  7. omg i want those dishes! first though, i want a place of my own so i have room for new dishes!

  8. The mugs are the cutest, indeed!

  9. great finds. I would love to find plates like that. I have a question about the sauce pan, are those useable or just decorative?

  10. useable! looks brand new inside! :)

  11. I LOVE LOVE your mugs!! I think people just don't have that sort of neat stuff to sell around here- there's hardly anything worth salvaging out here in Eastern KY.

    love, rudi

  12. Thats a bummer Rudi! I'm starting to think I live in an exceptionally awesome thrifting area!

  13. I so want that knittin' kitten!! I got a cartoony cat picture at the weekend as well as an owl... metal scrapey picture... I can't remember what you call them lol

  14. A knitting kitty! Too cute. Also, that mug set is so pretty. I love nesting anything...

  15. Oh my gosh, I have the matching kettle to your saucepan. Those mugs are amazing.

  16. I have the same cute sauce pan, and my roommates make fun every time I use it but whatever it makes me smile.

    oh and I'm seeing the Smashing Pumpkins this saturday...although it's outside and I plan on sitting on a blanket far from the stage


  17. Did you see them in Columbus? I was up there today and saw that they had played there recently.


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment! I love reading what's on your mind! :)
