Warning: This post is filled with randomness.
To start with, it's a thrifting post. I didn't *mean* to shop. I really didn't. I was just dropping off the Von Trapp/ Sound of Music type drapes that I removed from the living room here. And then...I saw this firkin table. You see, I asked her what she was selling it for and she said $2.50. I saw that the legs can unscrew and I thought it needed a friend...and I had other firkins at home it could be with. I didn't tell her that it was worth around $60...I just said I'd take it. And then I saw the 'tea' spout container. I saw it last time around...for $1.99. I didn't need it, the top was missing, so I skipped. But I secretly told myself that if it was still there, I'd take it home. And then I saw a train for a quarter. And then I saw a like new coat and snowpants a couple sizes up...for $0.75 a piece. What do you know, I had quite the collection. And I wasn't even shopping. Grand total was $5.50...although her math didn't make sense, I took it all anyway. An even better deal!
This farmhouse is becoming the perfect blend of old and new. Just the way I like it.
