*I mentioned it last week, but the thrifting out here is amazing. Here's just a bit of our recent haul:
Vintage sheets and pillowcases I eventually want to make into a blanket:
Hanna Andersson dress for the girl ($3):
My new most favorite shoes ever:
I don't think I've ever discussed here my love of Swedish clogs. Actually, I love all clogs, but my preference leans toward the kind with the noisy wooden bottoms. You know, the kind most men find completely unattractive. If I happen upon a pair and they're anywhere near my size, I'll buy them. I paid $6.99 for these and they are a perfect fit. Honestly, I probably would have paid twice as much.
Gluten free and vegan baked goods. Have any of you made anything from this book yet? I'm itching to do some baking but can't decide which recipe to begin with.
*Meeting a blog friend (and her family) in person and not having it be weird or uncomfortable. Well, Jay and I didn't think it was weird. After we left, Melissa and her husband may have looked at each other and said, "Let's NEVER do that again." But I hope not.
*The big news (to me) that Alec Baldwin will be hosting Saturday Night Live on May 15. Yay! I love having some type of television event to look forward to. Totally dorky, I know.
*This candle holder that the boy bought for me at the Renaissance Faire.Upon arrival at the Faire, he wandered off on his own. About 20 minutes later he appeared, chucked this at me and said, "This is for you." And then ran off again waving his wooden sword. I suppose that's how eleven year old boys show affection.
*The mirrored closet doors in my apartment. Normally, I would hate something like this, because I make it a point to avoid all mirrors-especially full length ones-but then I realized that these particular mirrors are magically slimming. I may never move out of this apartment.
*Finally, this post about disposable hand towels over on enviro mom.
