Some recent thrift store finds!

So last week was our annual visit from out of town cousins. We spend time catching up and doing one of our favorite activities...thrifting! I prepared for the big day by hitting up my thrift store on Monday, gotta be in practice you know. I found some cute cloth napkins and a basket to store them in that is the perfect size. Also included in my score from the day are: a vintage recipe box, a new mirror (I think I'll paint the frame), a vintage knitting tote (which matches my couch and fits in great with my bedroom curtains too), and a desk top cube for scrapping tools.

Then on Tuesday (with the cousins) I found this little shelf/nightstand. It is sturdy and I see paint in it's future.

Check out the price! But, wait, it gets better! It was customer appreciation day so it was 25% off! $3 can't beat it!

And I had a plan for it, it is going to house my Big Shot. I am working on only buying things I have an immediate purpose for.

But that whole "buying with an immediate purpose" thing is a work in progress, because I bought this. I like how it looks, I am not sure what I will store in it yet. I think it will go into the studio, I am dreaming in vintage/shabby chic style for that room. So, what should I store in it??

Not pictured from the day, some clothes, little spice jars for scrapping embelishments (brand new 4 pack from IKEA), and a doll high chair for the girls.
