I am so happy when I find awesome things- after spending quality time digging through aisles, racks and piles at a thrift shop. My local favorite second hand shop- Savers- has a policy where if you bring items to donate then you get a 20% off coupon- all the more fun.
Found this awesome sweatshirt for the monkeys (they share clothes since they are the same size despite their two year age difference)- I got this for less than two dollars and I am excited for them to wear it when we travel to Canada at the end of the summer.
I found this set of small wooden bowls.
They are a perfect substitute for the plastic dinnerware we use around the pool.
These are classic 1970's bowls that growing up I remember everyone having having a set.
We actually own a large version of this bowl that my parents got as a wedding gift!
If you look very closely the larger bowl (which is older than me and is used constantly) has a crack in it.
The crack happened when we were living in Toronto and my youngest was playing on the kitchen floor- sitting in it and spinning around- Well he crack it and I keep it because it reminds me that my 'almost as tall as me' monkey was once was small enough to fit into this bowl!
I also like using the big bowl when I bring salad to friends houses- it's light, can fit a lot and won't break-
I am always on the look out for trays to use outside- this one is metal, has great depth and a great color scheme.
Finally- this air tight cookie jar- I want to start making more healthy cookies to leave on the counter- These almost finished ones are oatmeal raisins. For anyone who has growing boys- there comes a time where they start eating you out of house and home- we're there- and they are ALWAYS hungry.
Hope everyone has a great weekend-
Have you found any great thrifted treasures lately?
