Hello Blogland!!! I hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend!!! It certainly has been GORGEOUS in Western Maryland!!
I went to town Friday and made my rounds of the thrifts. It was slim pickin’s!!! Has anyone else noticed that the thrifts are a bit bare in your area??? I was talking with the manager of one I know and she said they haven’t been getting the donations like they used to. People are selling their stuff via Craigslist, Ebay and others.
I managed to find a couple of things. I SCOOPED up this gorgeous oil painting for $1.50 at the Salvation Army for my daughter. She’s a newlywed in their first house so she needs stuff!! The colors and subject were perfect for them. Julie and Sean both loved it when I dropped it off today!
Of course there is always time for gratuitous cute chihuahua pictures. Miss Kae is wearing her candy corn dress again(gotta wear it while she can!!) and MrBill is sporting the natural look. I’ve no idea what they are so tired for! That big white thing next to Kae’s head is Bear. Kae gets very vicious with Bear and stands on it while chewing it’s ears. Bear is bigger then she is!!
And onto the fashion part of the post. Thursday I had to really amp up the conservative business look as I had a big design meeting. I’m in charge of designing new private handicap shower/bathroom/dressing rooms and a new wounded warrior weights/exercise equipment room at the base fitness center. I had to at least look smarter than I am!!
Friday was my errand day so I dressed way down hoping I’d find goodies at the thrifts to try on. No such luck!
Today the family (mom, sister& hubby, nephews, our daughter & hubby, hubster & I) met for dinner at the Italian Restaurant where #2 nephew works while he’s in school. He waited on us as someone was late and we ragged on him how much our waiter sucked!!! The meal was really nice and I am stuffed!! My sister, mom and daughter loved the outfit and couldn’t BELIEVE it was thrifted!!
Stop back tomorrow for Make-Over (or Make-A-Mess) Monday!!
