No willpower what-so-ever...

I went out thrifting  donating 2 weeks ago and never shared my goodies! I have been cleaning out bringing stuff to Goodwill, consignment and elsewhere but it's SO HARD for me not to shop!  Plus I needed some summer things.  Well that is my excuse anyway! 
 I found this really cool urn for $1.49 and this fantastic paper holder for 29 cents!  I also got these old film reels for 79 cents each!  I love anything photography related and vintage is a BIG plus because I love it!

I also found these cool summery skirts!  I always love skirts but find that because I'm so short with a large chest, I can look frumpy in them......   But I think I found the
key to what is flattering on me!  I always love the layered look but it can make me look more "apple" which is NOT the look I'm going for!!  These are tighter around the waist and then get more flowy.  Which works on me!  The best part is both of them were under $3!!  I got the very cute straw bag for $1.99, love these prices!

The BRAND SPANKIN' NEWflip flops were only 99cents!  They look a little "J crew" to me! :)

 And last but not least this cute little print for my bathroom or dressing room.  For only 99 cents, it will find a good home in one of those places!!

I am joining the linky party at The Shabby Nest's Frugal Friday and Nifty Thrify Tuesday's at Coastal Charm,  come join the fun!!

I got a few goodies on Craigslist that I will share with you soon!

Wow! You really scored girl. I love it all. Those skirts will be perfect for summer and I'm totally coveting that urn and wire paper tray. I haven't been thrifting in ages because I keep thinking that's just more stuff I'll have to pack. Soon though. You've inspired me.

I have just discovered your blog and I have to say I LOVE your gorgeous French country decorating! Your home is like a Mary Crowley painting. I love her stuff too!

Those are great finds! I love the old reels! I'm doing my family room with old movie posters etc (because that's where we watch tv) and I'd love to find some too. Those are such cute skirts! I'm 5'4 so I know what you mean.

I'm soooo happy that you came to my PAR-TAY!

Kristi, that "urn" as you call it, is a wonderful champagne bucket! I hope it polishes up beautifully for you. I've been hunting for one for months.

Your little 'blush' picture looks just darling on your very Frenchy chair. Great finds!
