I've been feeling a bit down the last few weeks. I don't quite know why. It's probably a combination of things (school, the fact that it's still 85 degrees in October, etc...).
Monday, to combat my October blues, I made an impromptu trip to Goodwill. These are things I found:
A sweet little vase/pot with leaves
This mug in the prettiest shade of blue
A set of 4 ramekins (the perfect size for giant muffins!)
A sash/belt/scarf. The pattern is killer. This will soon become a zippered pouch of some sort.
I thought these were really funny. Look carefully, they're quite racy. They will most certainly be a gift for Kristen.
And finally, my most prized thrifty find, these fabulous tangerine salt and pepper shakers. Really, I can't express how much I love these. They still had salt and pepper in them when I bought them. Ha!
All (most) of my goodies together for a group portrait.
Everything I got was a little over $13. Total. I know. What a steal. I would have paid $5 for the shakers alone (they were only $2!).
So, after thrifting for a while I was looking forward to sitting in my nice cool apartment and admiring my purchases. Unfortunately, I came home to a toasty 83 degrees in my apartment. My A/C is broken and my landlords haven't returned any of my calls... for 2 days.
Have I mentioned that I'm having a bad couple of weeks?
