i'm actually *saving* my money, but not by choice

It's no mystery: I love to thrift because it's something my mom had me doing at a very young age. Also, it was something I still enjoy doing with her when I'm lucky enough to in her company! I was home in Portland recently and a short stack of her mostly Lu-Ray Pastels had me tremendously inspired. I just love them. And my mom.

Yes, I know: things have been quiet here lately. I think the month of January will forever be known as the Great Thrift Drought of 2008, because it certainly had me in moments of Great Depression.

I was really lucky today and will post my recent find soon. Also, my younger sister surprised me with three pieces of Pyrex for an early Valentine gift. I've been dying to share, but I think I'll hold off until the 14th.

Hope you've had better luck than me! (I should say here that Steve has had tremendous luck lately -- photo enlargers, serious-hiker backpack, heavy-duty portfolio case -- everything in like-new condition. All for less than a dinner out!).

Thrifting has been slow here as well. However, I did find two cute bowls last week. Please stop by and take a look see. Can't wait to see your Valentine gift!
