A Thrift friend = A Forever friend

One of my dearest friends from high school is here for a weekend visit! It was only natural that we found ourselves wandering around a few local thrift stores. Is there anything better than thrifting with a long-time friend? I believe not.

We reminisced about spending many of our days in high school scouring local thrift stores for cool "old man" pants to wear -- a trend that has since faded. Now our eyes are peeled for furniture, art, knickknacks, as we both have houses to decorate. Regardless of what we are looking for, our love of thrift remains!

The pickin's were slim this weekend, but Julia scored a BEAUTIFUL sewing machine. Check it out!

The husband doubted my ability to find a user's manual for the machine -- silly silly man. Within five minutes, I'd found Julia two manuals to get her started on her own sewing journey. I am so excited for her! I can't wait to see all the beautiful things she creates ...
