Can’t wait for spring so I can display my newest treasures.
And also because I am tired of cold feet and chapped claw-like hands.
Linking up with Apron Thrift Girl for Thrift Share Monday, my favorite day of the week!
I found 3 of these paper mache eggs with the cool patterned insides stamped ‘Made in Germany’ no idea if they are vintage or just ‘vintagey’ but I love them. I fell to my knees and praised the heavens right there in the thrift store aisle when I saw that there were in fact 3.
Because, you know I have 3 kids.
And they fight.
Sometimes it makes me so crazy that I gather myself up and leave for several hours, which is exactly what happened the day that I ventured into the thrift and found these little pretties sitting on the shelf.
I left Mr. Right in charge and hotfooted it over to Savers where I found my treasure (a whole 99 cents each), picked out a paperback and then headed to the bar.
I stayed there and read a few chapters, watched the Seahawks game, drank two glasses of house white and ate a baja chicken quesadilla.
Then I ordered dessert.
No one cried, no one yelled, not one other person there even asked for a bite of my dessert.
So I took advantage of the peace and played words with friends on my iphone and read a couple more chapters of my book. I was still felling pretty good, so I researched paper mache eggs from Germany and plotted my Easter party.
I was so distracted by the peace and quiet that I could not come to a definite conclusion on the age of the eggs, so I gave up and contemplated going to a movie, but the movie I wanted to see was not playing.
I wanted to see ‘Country Strong’ because I love country music and I heard that it was reminiscent of ‘Pure Country’ which happens to be one of the best movies EVAH and I am not even kidding because it stars guess who??
Oh. Oh. Oh.
So of course I was all in the mood to see a good country love story except that the only movie playing that I even remotely could consider was ‘The King’s Speech’. Colin Firth stars, and he is not bad to look at, but he is no G.S.
Know what I mean?
Plus The Kings Speech had this whole English Period thing going on and it looked like it might be semi intellectual and also whenever I watch movies that are set in England, I have a heck of a time understanding what they are saying. So I really didn’t want to have to work that hard at watching a movie, you know?
Just entertain me while I sit like a big large sloth and eat my popcorn and raisinets.
It’s all I ask from the cinematic experience.
So I just went home (where noise and chaos and dirty laundry reigned) and watched the Jets game.
All in all it was a pretty good day.
I never did get the Tunnel of Fudge cake made, though which was a complete dissappointment to Max, because he is insistent that January 6th was ‘Cake Day’ and we forgot to celebrate it.
According to Max ‘Cake Day is “where you eat cake for breakfast, lunch, snacks and dinner”. I can kind of get behind that holiday, so I am working on the Tunnel of Fudge cake tonight. Expect to see it later this week.
Big Fat Congrats to my beloved Green Bay Packers who won their wild card playoff game yesterday!
I super love them even if the game was so stressful that I hid outside in the backyard for the final minute and missed the game ending interception, which now I am kind of bummed about. The Packers go to Atlanta on Saturday so I am going to try and watch the whole game this time.
I forgot to tell you that I am running away this weekend and will be watching said Packer game in the Bay Area.
Kids are not going.
I completely apologize for the disjointedness of my rambling thoughts and also for the super huge rabbit trail off the original subject of Thrift Share Monday.
Back in a few days with the Tunnel of Fudge delightfulness.
Have a great Monday!
