Thirfted. Updates. Challenge. Random.

1) Thrifted

This whole set of vintage dishes, vintage fabric and a yard of wool fabric.  $6.00.
This fantastic set of Lincoln Logs, a vintage rake, a fabric basket and a game that got the 'best toys' award. $9.00.
2) Updates

-It keeps warming up here.  I can't believe how much snow has disappeared.  The goats can find plenty to eat outside now.
-Our highlight of the weekend was definitely going for a horse drawn wagon ride. And then, of course, petting, hugging and feeding treats to those beautiful draft horses.  Thank you, friends. 
- My husband was a rockstar on my birthday...made a gorgeous cake and dinner.
- My kids have been getting along better than they ever have.  I usually need to constantly supervise the little one, but she has been staying right with her big brother.  I've been able to do some tasks that their 'helpfulness' is too helpful, like move things around in the barn, with them playing together on their own.
-The BOG spoiled them with some more homemade toys.  I can't wait to show you.
- There is no homemade dessert in this house.  That problem will be rectified tomorrow.

3) I've given myself a little challenge. My friend gave us some King Arthur Sourdough starter. I've been trying to make something new with it weekly.  Want to join in the fun?  Make the starter on your own. I just did baguettes.  Yum.
4) While the warmer weather has been a treat, I know the snow will return.  I'm not yet tired  of this type of family fun.


  1. I'm tellin' ya, your thrifted stuff is the best! You sound like you are in such a good place. Love it. Enjoy it all!

  2. The Lincoln Logs! :) I used to play with my dad's old Lincoln Logs when I'd go to my grandparents' home as a kid. I bought some for my son when he was younger, but, of course, they weren't vintage.

  3. That was a great buy on transfer wear...and it's red! Around here blue is the colour you most often see. Love your thrifted items. Did you notice that spell check doesn't like that word - 'thrifted'. You may have invented a new word! :-)

  4. I am so envious of all your pretty vintage dishes. I'm on the hunt for some like that! I'm so glad you had a good birthday. Guess what? David and I are visiting a goat farm on Saturday! It's more of an educational trip so we can learn more about what kind of fencing to install and how to feed them and keep them healthy. But hopefully we will be able to bring some home this year :)
