It's been another great thrifting weekend! Sometimes I shudder to think of what I must miss during the week if I'm finding this stuff on a Saturday! LOL~I also had a great day Friday eating at the Student Union where my son recently took over the chef dining director position at UMKC! Really great choices, and done well! He was featured in the KC Star a few weeks ago! So proud of him!
Other than that, just planting my tomatos, a few flowers and being at the place I love best, HOME! My younger son painted the living room chartreuse, and while I thought it would just be one wall, I decided to go ahead and do the whole room, since I LOVE it!

Here are some of my thrifting finds...
comedy tragedy masks Sixties

Rubbermaid pink organizer
Turquoise Plastex organizer

panther ashtray
Aren't those masks the strangest?? I really want to keep them, but well, thrift a holics will understand. More soon, but I really need to spend some time catching up on your blogs! I think I'll do that right now!~

Everybodys Working for the Weekend!

How was your weekend? Mine was good, of course any day comprised of seeing the grandkids and thrifting is great! My two youngest granddaughters Lily and Kate had a soccer game..so cute!This picture is after the game and lunch. They had changed into their cute dresses! Then, on the way home, I found a few cool things, like this tile clock...and a BiCentenial Campbell's kids towel. The toaster and Sunbeam books are in the kitchen,  my cool glass front toaster quit~but hope to get it fixed. I love chrome too, though. I changed out my shelf paper to pretty colors in the kitchen from the white. My mom's old apartments had a "free table" and I will miss that! She found a whole box of different kinds of placemats, old and newer still in the wrapper, so I fashioned them into shelf liner. It really brightened things up~

Too bad this Ronson razor box had no razor!I couldn't resist, because of the Atomic symbol. Maybe I'll find the razor another time!~ Also, forgive the dark picture, I found a set of twin sixties headboards -padded vinyl with button tucks. Really cool, and only $15.00 for the pair. Well, until the next weekend thrifting spree, have a great week!!!
