Thrifting and Such

On Tuesday my sister watched the two older kids. So that meant it was just Charlotte and me for the day. This is usually my day to get a lot of work done (for the office) because I'm not interrupted.

After dropping off the kids at my sisters I thought I'd hit a thrift store. I've been dying to go thrifting but with three kids it just isn't something I can do on my own. Here are a few things I found.

This first record was the biggest score of the day. Bonnie was so excited when she saw it she ran around for a bit screaming Scooby-Doo!

A few more for the record stack. I had fun trying to get the kids to sit still for photos. I know so silly of me.

I found this record and neither Jay or know who the musician is but we both loved the cover. I figured the cover was worth the 50 cents I spent.

The cross stitched chairs were not thrifted. I finished up the green cross stitch chair earlier this week. I hit the fabric store and picked up five hoops. I am thinking I'll use the other two hoops to put some fabric in. I'm planning on hanging the three chairs in our bedroom. I've been thinking of doing the cross stitch for a while I just hadn't gotten around to it. I started the blue chair after I had Charlotte as a way to get myself to sit still so I could heal. How silly I had to find something to keep me still.

Last and not least a cute photo of Charlotte.

Love your cute models for your thrift finds. And you can tell little Charlotte's getting so much personality!

Charlotte's getting so big. You'll have to post some pictures of her next to baby pics of the other two. I think she looks like Bonnie, but hard to tell at this age. Love the cross stitch!

Bonnie's hair is really cute! And Charlotte is starting to look like a girl version of Chas or Bonnie, I'm not sure but she sure matches your other kids!

Oh we totally buy records for the covers, sometimes they never get listened to. Tomorrow night we are having a guy over that collects records and he was in the right spot at the right time and he got John Wayne's record collection, after he died.
I love the cross stitched chairs, what a cool idea. And Charlotte is getting so big and cute. You do need to post more pictures of her.

Three lawn chairs for three little ones, when it's the adults who need to rest. I love the pictures of the kids. Charlotte is still a DOLL and Bonnie's hair cut is very cool. Chas is all about getting into the cover. After seeing the kids, I think I can make it through the week end now.
