Hi!  How was everyone's Memorial Day weekend?
Mine was wonderful!  I spent lots of time with Sean, which is lovely since we're so far apart during the week.  We took a bike ride, watched too many episodes of 'Bridezillas', and went on two successful thrifting trips!
Here are two of the goodies I found:
I've been searching for a little house shelf in every thrift store I've been in for a while.  I spotted this beauty across the store and made a beeline for it!  And we found the suitcase for $6!  It's in great shape, just a bit dirty.  Nothing some scrubbing won't take care of.  The inside is in PERFECT condition.  Not a single spot to be found!

As you can see, the house shelf was a little banged up, though.  It had this hideous red velvet backing that I immediately ripped off.  A few coats of spray paint later, and it's much lovelier. :)


I'm now on a hunt for more tiny knick-knacks and baubles to fill it with. C:
What did you do over the long weekend? :)

Have a wonderful Wednesday evening!

I love thrift stores and junk shops. As for how to fill that house? Looks like owls and cats is the way to go.
