The day was go go go from the moment my feet hit the ground, but really that isn’t so unusual anymore. I somehow managed to homeschool Fox, take him to get his hair cut, do a load of laundry, peruse the thrift for items to add to the booth, then go to said booth to straighten up, and even played with the boys for a bit after dinner.
I also treated myself to a new to me Gooseberry Patch cook book that I spotted in a neighboring aisle. I have this thing about collecting cookbooks and reading them front to back only to ever rarely use one of the recipes. But I have always loved a good cook book. I like them with food photography or illustrated, from conflicting dietary practices, brand new, vintage, I love them all! If you have never read a Gooseberry cookbook you really should! They are the epitome of cozy.
After this entry is completed I am going to marvel at the treasures I found at the thrift. All of which I will sell. As follows:
- rainbow colored handmade afghan
- two sailboat picture frames. One wooden, the other metal
- two heart shaped catch-all dishes made by Hallmark
- a floral Free People skirt
- a silk neck scarf
- a vintage red cotton dress
- a black Totes trench coat
Fox came along and I have to say he is developing an eye for picking. I love that he humors me and enjoys himself. He has a good enough feel for my style that he will turn me away from an item he doesn’t think is a good fit. And today he thought I was grabbing the sailboat frames for our house and he said, “Yeah but are we really boat people?” Funny guy, and No. We are definitely not boat people.
