I mentioned in yesterday's post
that we would be spending the day with Gramma...
We did and we had a great time.
We decided to go thrifting, again.
I know I just posted about thrifting a few days ago
and I, honestly, do not go thrifting very often
but since Mama is here
it's been so enjoyable going with her.
We have a local thrift store
that is pretty large
and we spent quite some time in there.
But we came out with lots of lovely finds.
I always love when I'm able to find books to bring home...
Among this collection were books like
New Illustrated Encyclopedia of Gardening
The Kingfisher Book of The Ancient World
Dorling Kindersley's First Aid for Children Fast
LIFE's World Library: Greece
The Life of Prairies and Plains
Books on the Civil War, World War 1, and World War 2
The Writings of Jonathan Swift
David Copperfield and A Tale of Two Cities
by Charles Dickens
Eighteenth-Century English Verse
Washington Goes to War
The White House: An Historic Guide
Peterson's Field Guide to Western Birds
and a few others.
Also, Ally found a few books that she posted about.
I also picked up these items below...
On the left is a napkin holder
(which my beloved will be thankful for...
he made a comment some time ago about not having one);
a mantle clock (the face is cross-stitched
using Roman numerals);
a note box (something I had never seen before,
but interested me.)
I also got these...
They are individual pieces.
I was also able to find this set of dishes...
I will be using the tea cups
for our upcoming ladies' tea fellowship.
I'll likely be using them as centerpieces on the tables.
We really had a great time.
The children loved being able to sit and read through
many books while we were there.
I'll likely be putting away my 'thrifting shoes' for a while
but I am thankful for the finds
we were able to bring home.
now I need another bookshelf!
Hope y'all enjoyed your day!
