Cass, I will be emailing you some questions about your blog and we'll get started right away. I really look forward to working on your blog. Thanks to everyone who took part in the giveaway.
I thought I'd try something new here. I know lots of bloggers have catchy phrases for certain days. I think there is Thrift Thursday, Menu Mondays, Follow Fridays and so on. I have tried some in the past but never seem to keep up with them or I move my focus elsewhere. I thought I would try once again but this time will add the Mcklinky feature. Now as I type this on Sunday evening, I must admit, I'm not sure if it's even going to work. I've never added a Mcklinky feature before. If it's not there this week then there has been an error and I'll try again next week. I thought I would try to regularly write Thrift Share Monday posts where I discuss what I found over the weekend.
My busiest day for thrifting tends to be Saturday followed by Friday and lastly Sunday. When I asked you all what you most liked about Apron Thrift Girl back in January, so many of you mentioned that you liked to see what I found when I thrifted. I must say it is an honor that you allow me to share my finds with you. The entire reason I actually started this blog was because I was bored with Dave's reactions to items that I would bring home. He would try to be creative in how to compliment my 12th bowl that I would drag home but in the end I could feel his attention draining. I somehow stumbled upon blogging in 2006 and found so many incredible, like minded people. I still show Dave some items but I much prefer to share them with you, my thrifting readers.
Here's some of my finds from the weekend.
It's a really lovely Matryoshka doll that has a chime bell in it. The paint is slightly peeled on the bottom so they had priced her at .50 cents. She makes the loveliest sound deep in her belly. And she's kind of like a Russian version of a Weeble Wobbles.
This is a vintage print of Mt. Shasta. It was $4.00 at an estate sale. I grew up in a small town in the north valley of California. We could walk out onto the porch and see Mt. Shasta from our home. I got such a sweet warm feeling in my tummy as I looked at this print my mind full of nostalgia.
I bought a few vintage House Beautiful Magazines from the 1960's. I had to smile when I found this ad because this was our first microwave that we had in our home. We called it the Radarange throughout my entire childhood. Did anyone else have one of these?
Do you have some thrifted items that you shared on your blog today? If you do and if the MckLinky works, please add your blog to our list. I'd love to visit your blogs and see what you thrifted this last weekend. Have a fabulous week.
