Hi Selena! i was so excited to see a facebook post from you so i came right over! first of all, you don't need to apologize for being on holidays - your committment to family has always been clear and it's great to see you finding frugal ways to be with your kids. We're in the middle of renovating our backyard (check my facebook photos. ugh!) and i wish we could go away and have someone do it while we were gone - there are advantages to renting!
i'm heading to Scotland in September and will have a few days in London. can you or dave recommend any charity shops that i should check out while i'm there?
love the swiss boys too!


Sounds as if you are having the best of both wrlds. You found a wonderful lower priced sale with great items and are having a wonderful family vacation. I hope you share those photos as well.

I got out for National Garage Sale day and found something I have been interested in for a very long time. Just have not blogged it yet.

Nell's Vintage House

Yay!! You're back. Sort of :)
I've been missing my Monday fix.
Have a blast in Nevada!


Sounds like a great, relaxing vacation! I hope you and the family have a wonderful time =)

Found your blog while looking for thrift stores in my area (I'm in the East Bay)! First time linking up today. Thanks for hosting such a fun party and have fun at Tahoe!


Hi Selena! I am a spinner from NH. Would love to see a post about the wheels and carders. I have always dreamed about walking into an estate sale and spying a cache of spinning wheels. Enjoy your vacation.

Thanks so much I look forward to this post every week. It is great to see what everyone finds. +1!

Shopping Golightly

Camping is one of my favorite forms of vacation. Honestly. Everyone syncs up and relaxes. However, this has been a summer of sanding and painting. Mr. Golightly and I restored windows, painted, etc. Nearly done. I did snag a vintage wooden trunk for $2 this week (it's pictured in the post). It took two hours work, some sandpaper and paint and now? It's going to be a family heirloom. Will show photos later. Girls start school TOMORROW!


Have fun on your vacation, make the most of it :) I'm here in Sarasota Florida and heading down to the Florida Keys with my friends to finish off our mini-vacation.
