I have been getting lucky with the thrift stores lately. Let me start by saying I would have never ever thought about thrifting in my life before blogging. I love to shop the malls, browsing the displays and trying on designers that I adore. My family and close friends think it is so odd that I have turned into a thrift store junkie. I love antique stores and don't mind throwing down some money for an item I really love or want. Recently I was with a friend and we had gone to a craft show and I had to stop on the way back home at a thrift store to see if they had any treasures, which they didn't. I think I am forming an addiction!

Let me show you this two cute pillows that will grace my front porch once I paint my rocking chair. (That will be another post later.) I was a little skeptical buying pillows, thinking were have they been, but since they will be for outside and have to endure the weather why not for $3 for both. They look clean and smell clean.

The sunflower pillow will grace my porch in the Fall. And the beach cabana will have a spot in the rocking chair during the summer. I'm on the lookout for more pillows, one for each month and/or holiday.

Are you ready for the weekend?

Those are very cute a cheerful. Yes, I wonder about where the pillows have been before, too. But, if they don't smell funny or have any dirt on them, then what the hey. Isn't thrifting fun?

I am staying home this weekend and maybe spending some time at the sewing machine to finish a tote bag.

Have a good one!
