So ever since I finished watching Arrested Development I felt like I needed to start watching another show that can make me laugh as hard as that show. Since no other show can compare to it, my netflix suggested I watch Party Down. I'm on season 2 now and it's really funny. The 1st season had Jane Lynch in it which was a plus and now I can't stop watching it. The humor is different but in a good way, hey and it's directed by Fred Savage. You know, The Wonder Years? You can watch it instantly on netflix so for those who have it, I recommend you add it.
I have 2 more weeks lefts before my summer vacation. Luckily, I have had a little bit of down time and decided to go thrift store shopping. I hadn't gone in a while and I felt really good when I got back into it. I guess I can say I "scored". There were some things that I was looking for and found and others were a nice surprise. Here are some of my finds on Sunday:

(From left) bed sheets, a green owl family, a sweet plaque, another owl, vintage flower looms, a retro photo album (it has black pages inside) and a couple of vintage pillow cases. They had the matching bed sheets but I couldn't bring myself to pay $7 for each set. Maybe next time.

I also got this awesome crocheted blanket, an old book, Jane Austin Book Club book (I got it mostly because of the design on the cover), a glass and a pitcher. I used to have the matching creamer and sugar set but probably not exactly the same shade of orangey-peach.

I love this glass, I just wish I had a set of at least four. Oh well, I might list it on my Etsy. Someone else might need it to complete their set.

I went on a walk today because I wanted to visit some interesting shops that are near my apartment but I just never bothered to stop by and look. A consignment shop also opened and I just wanted to pop in and see what they had. Well I didn't get to make it to any of them. A thrift store that I never knew about stopped me in my tracks and I just had to see what was inside. Everything was VERY reasonably priced and the first thing that caught my eye was this Polaroid camera. Only $4! I don't know if it works but I'm a camera collector so I'll find out sooner or later. I also found a few more owls.

I ended up taking with me a camera, 2 owls, a vintage plastic thermos, 2 round frames, a few records and I was really excited that I found a Catherine Holm casserole dish and an empty ledger. Since finishing Elsie and Rachel's journal class, I left very inspired. I'm going to paint the cover of my ledger and make it a journal.

Oh I love thrifting! I also got a dress, a blouse and some shoes which I will post later. This has been an exciting couple of days for me. Maybe I'll even take that long walk tomorrow and hope that I can make it to those shops.


  1. awesome finds!! loooove all the owl stuff and oranges ♥

  2. I loved Arrested Development was the perfect show. Buster Bluth was such a sassy bitch.

    I have that Polaroid Land camera, too. Such a great steal.

    That's also the best Beach Boys album, actually one of the best albums ever for me.

  3. Carly: Thanks, it definitely made my day to find a new thrift store.

    Diana: Buster really was the best. There won't be another one like it...unless they bring it back.
