thriftful glee, gleeful thrift


i have been bursting to share the gleeful thrifty finds this week:

the half-size orange suitcase..which goes with my teal bowling case oh-so-well!

if I had a baby girl coming up through the ranks i'd copy Katie (skunkboy creatures) and consider doing this with it:



(for those of you who do have a baby girl coming up through the ranks, more info and pics here. brilliant!)


then i found this weaving loom. yay!


these (??) were inside the box along with the weaving loom. anyone know what to do with them??


and then...these!
for only $3 a piece - (the dear old lady behind the counter couldn't understand why they were so expensive!)

to see this is magical in itself.
no 'made-in-china' here baby! :)


yep, a good thifting week

  4. Oh, I LOVE those cases! I got some of the same genre a while back and had to defend their honour against conventional, conservative folk opposed to old-school suitcases. True story;
