Thrift Store Addict

I have to admit I have a very addictive personality. For those of you who know me well know that I can't stay out of thrift stores. I could spend hours and hours or I should say I do spend hours and hours looking at what they have that I can alter, fix or just plan repaint.

Today I found this adorable fenton vase for only $1.50 I was tickled PINK!

I also picked up a bunch of old children's books. I can't wait to go through them page by page. There is one book I've been looking for for a very long time. I don't know who the author is but the name of the book is Little Black Sambo if I remember right. It's about a boy stealing a watermelon and it is the cutest story about getting caught and learning your lesson for stealing. I would love to have this book to read to my little grandsons. My Mom read it to me when I was little and I use to read it over and over.

Here is a picture of the poodle I picked up yesterday. Isn't she cute.

Check out that pedicure! Her toenails are painted chic. Do you remember these little cuties? My Grandmother had one sitting on a self and I always wanted her. I'm not sure whatever happened to hers....I'm so excited to have my own. I'm sure she is just the start of many. I saw a whole family of them where I got her and you know someone has to adopt them so they might as well go to a loving home like MINE! Right?

I hope you are enjoying this beautiful day and will come back again soon. I'm off to create something or at least clean up some of the mess in my scrapbook room.
