It has finally come to that time of the year! We are heading up to our family cabin in Northern Michigan to open it for the season! Our travel trailer is there as well so, we will be opening that up too. This is the last week we have the chance to do this if Troy wants to be with us for a week. The Farmer’s Market’s start May 6.
We are so happy to get away for awhile! I will not be within internet service for 10 days! Whoa! So, I wanted to give you all a heads up that I won’t be able to visit this week. I will have next week’s TTF post ready and scheduled to publish like normal.
I was going to take some projects with me to get done while I am away but, I have decided I am going to attempt to just totally relax.
I am always on the look out for things I need at our trailer while out thrifting. I was happy to find this thermal carafe recently.
I also picked up these silver plated with gold seashell napkin rings.
I couldn’t beat the price of .79 cents for a set of 6!
I really haven’t had time to do much thrifting lately. I even let a 50% off total purchase coupon go to waste! GASP!! the only reason I even got the above items is because I gathered a bunch of stuff to donate to the thrift store and popped in for a few minutes to check things out. I have slowly been culling out old linens and dishes from our everyday stuff. A lot got donated!
This week I even tackled cleaning out my makeup. I haven’t done that in ages! Do you see a lipstick you just know is going to be wonderful and then get it home and try it and think, “Oh no, I don’t think so!” I seem to do that a lot! Instead of returning it, which some companies you can do that or throwing it away, it gets tossed into a large china bowl. What on earth am I thinking? That it will magically change and look perfect on me? They all got tossed this week!
I have an announcement…. I am going to stop the Thrifty Tablescape party. Doing it only once a month, even I forget about it! And doing this party weekly is enough of a commitment for me right now. If you need to get your tablescape fix, I recommend you join my friend Kathleen for “Let’s Dish” a Wednesday weekly party!
Okay, onto some fun features…..
Shannon at A Southern Belle with Northern Roots showed us this wonderful underwood typewriter she found.
Marty at Marty’s Musing shared this wonderful gallery wall she created!
Gloria at Gloria’s Little Cedars found some sweet items to share.
Thank you ladies for sharing with us!
Now, that’s get thrifty!
