Today was one of those days where I needed to do this and I had to do that. We needed bread (yes, I am married to The Breadman, but we NEVER have bread in the house) and lettuce and cat food and Doritoes (you can need Doritoes, can't you?). I had packages to mail at the Post Office. We needed to find something to eat. And we had to find a book that was released today for The Bean. He is a bookworm - loves his books. A new book in one of his series came out today and he had planned out exactly how many pages he could read each day of the last book so that he would finish it today and be able to start the new one today too. So, we had to find it TODAY!
So, we headed out to the Post Office, Sonic, the Bank, Wal-Mart and Target. We left later than we should have and we really needed to get home. So, time was of the essence. We didn't have time for one more thing. So, that obviously explains why I drove the car straight to Goodwill, right? Something was calling to me inside there......
Before what I show you what it was - I must talk about how weird it was to find things that we had recently donated in there from my Grandmother's house. I have looked at those items so many times, moved them from here to here, priced them, moved them again, boxed them up and donated them - I thought surely things were gone forever. But, no. I saw silverware, a teddy bear, some dishes, a lamp and a few other things. I'm used to seeing things that I have donated at the thrift, it's just that I really thought that stuff was GONE when it left my hands for the last time.
But, enough about that. What was calling to me? Oh, my. It's good.
Absolutely adorable porcelain babies from Japan.
Dated 1960 on the bottom (no pun intended).
Possibly one of the cutest things I have ever, ever thrifted.
Priced at $2.50 each, but today was Green Tag day and they had green tags - so $2.50 for the pair.
Love, love, love these babies.
And, that, my friends, is why you must always make time to stop at the thrift. :)
*We did find the book. All is well in Beanland.
**The photos are wonky because the flash quit working on my trusty camera. I have a new fancy PINK Cannon coming this week and I cannot wait! Happy late birthday to meeeeeeeeeee.
