I love loving the things I love to do. Frequenting the thrift store is high on that list. So it is a nice thing that, as of yesterday, our small town now has its very own thrift store.
We went to check it out last night, and I found some fun little treasures. I'm drinking now out of my new favorite mug, a fabby little red mug (below) with vintage-looking detail like vertical indented grooves, but Molly read the print on the bottom (because I couldn't without my glasses ) and she said it was JC Penney. I also found that blue little pitcher creamer thing which will look adorable holding little yellow violas next spring.
I can scarcely get past the book section...it's just so hard to stop looking and walk away. I found two Lori Wick books I did not have: The Rescue and City Girl. In new condition, no less.
I haven't been reading any of Lori Wick's newer books. I don't know what happened, but for me it's just like they are not the same. It's like someone else is writing for her now. But I love so many of her older books. Especially The Proposal, which is the first in the English Garden series, before The Rescue. And I loved Every Little Thing About You which is the first in the Yellow Rose Trilogy with City Girl. It's just fun because Molly is enjoying reading them too and it's fun to share a favorite author.
I also found Colleen Dewhurst's autobiography. I love autobiographies, and I had started reading hers on Amazon...the inside the book look thing. So I was really happy to find it at the thrift store and actually, it was not there the first time I looked. Jack was checking out, and I strayed over to the books again. And that was when I found it. I think Colleen Dewhurst was a fabulous actress, and I'll always love her as Marilla Cuthbert of Anne of Green Gables fame.
Lastly, we stopped first at a little place that sells used DVDs. I found Sweet land for $2.99. This is such a sweet little movie, simple and charming. I just loved it. It is an immigrant story which takes place in my home state of Minnesota. The colors in the movie are just wonderful and the whole story is just so different and enjoyable. Just a true gem, and I was so happy to find it.
