thrift

Yesterday I came across an old Girl Scout uniform while browsing at the thrift store. I walked away from it but turned back and picked it up. I think that’s the beauty (and downfall) of thrift store shopping. At $2.99, why say no?

I know a certain Girl Scout troop that will get a kick out of this!
(Anyone have an idea as to the age of this particular uniform? And ideas to get the dingy yellow color out of the shirt?)
Also over the weekend, my mother in law went to a local auction. Eli and I had discussed refinishing a church pew for seating on the deck. She found a few and was planning to bid on the nicest one. Lo and behold, they were a package deal….but not a bad deal! A total if $17 for more than 20 feet of church pew!

    Refinishing the pew will be a great project. It will be beautiful on your porch when finished.
