....or nab some treasures out of someone's curbside trash!!! Hiya Blogland!!! A real friend won't even think you are crazy to suggest stopping and rooting through someone's trash because you spied something FABULOUS!!!
I was on my way yesterday to meet Andrea for our thrift-a-palooza when I spied a bunch of Christmas stuff alongside trashcans on the curb near her home. There was a WHITE Christmas tree laying there!!! When I got to her house I asked her if she would mind if I stopped to check it out. MIND??? Heck she would help me look over the stuff!!
So we stopped and I nabbed a GORGEOUS 8FT high narrow white iridescent/opalescent tree--I just need to get a tree stand for it. We howled in laughter stuffing it in the back of my little Neon car!! Andrea and I agreed that our hubby's would've been rolling their eyes at us!!! Lauren just shook his head when I drug it into the basement. I needed another tree--LOL. I ONLY had 8--now with the one I got Saturday for my World War 2 era ornaments I'll have 10. SNERK!!!
I have PLANS for this white tree for the master bedroom. I've always wanted a pastel/shabby chic tree and this will be perfect. Pictures to come when I get it up!! I've been sorting through other ornaments to gather all the pastel ones together.
Andrea and I managed to hit up three Goodwills yesterday, including the half price outlet. Totally spaced taking any pictures as usual. We also stopped by Burlington Coat Factory--they have the best jewelry for cheap. Plus they will discount anything broken. Andrea got an awesome black necklace that just needed a jump ring re-connected for like $3.
I joke with her that anytime we thrift together she finds all kinds of goodies and I find nothing!!! I did get a cute pullover sweater I'll be wearing next week. She cleaned up--pair of orchid skinny pants, a black silky tunic, a brown crochet cardigan, a leopard glittery tank, a lime green sweater tunic, a purple satin blouse and a pair of kick-ass black snake knee-high boots. All of this for under $25!!!
PLUS we shopped for the boys. I got my "grandsons" 6 long sleeve tshirts for like $5, and she got them 4 pair of pants and several shirts. The shirts are usually only 75 cents and the pants $1 at the Goodwill outlet.
I dressed for ease of trying on stuff--which I did but nothing really fit except that sweater I brought.
Everything I'm wearing except the boots is thrifted. The boots I got last year at Kohl's 90% off of $109!!!
In case you're wondering what's going on with the hair--I'm trying to let it grow out some. I was having some serious static head yesterday!! I trimmed my bangs last week and they are curling up too short. I'm thinking about maybe going for something shoulder length-if it doesn't drive me crazy. (which for me it's a really short trip to crazy-LOL).
MrBill is really enjoying his sweaters these days. I guess he's finally realized they keep him warm. I just brought matching xmas ones for him and Gracie. This is his newest one. He still isn't much on having his picture taken. I tried to get one of Graciebut she was too busy running around.
This week is Citizen Rosebud's Shoe Shine!!! I'm showing off the lace-up kick-butt Guess boots of AWESOMENESS I thrifted for $5 this summer. Stop by and check out the best shoe show on the web!!
Well, I'm off to do some hand hemming. I scored a Black Watch tartan plaid pencil skirt I want to debut soon!! Everyone have a FABULOUS evening!!
