HAPPY PINK SATURDAY!
Hello my fellow Pinkies! Happy P.S! What is it about the thrill of the hunt? What causes perfectly normal women to travel across the country to go "junkin"? Is it something that is in the DNA? Are we all just a little OCD? In my family, my Mother loves to go to Estate Sales and thrift stores with me. We never did it when I was young. I started my journey in 1972, just out of need to furnish a house on very little money. Now, it is one of the things that give me the most pleasure. It is true, digging through other peoples junk is so much fun!
My Mother gets so excited on Friday's, (that is our day together). My Mom's name is Lola! Together we go to Estate Sales and thrift stores looking for the one piece of junk, that we cannot live without. Today was not any different, we went off, high on hopes and short on cash. We get our news paper, our maps and the wipes out, looking for the big sale! It is so much fun, we even have fun getting lost!
As I was looking for items to post for this Pink Saturday, I was reminded of the items my Mother and I have purchased together. Mom, will call and wake me up to make sure I am ready, she is so cute. The items I have pictured today are some of the fun "pieces of junk, we can't live without", that I purchased with my Mom. Everything pictured was purchased at an Estate or a thrift store. I will stop for an Estate sale, no matter where I am going. I have even stopped on my way to a wedding, heels and all! I am sure, I am the only one out there that does that, LOL!
Have a wonderful weekend! Hoping that you get lots of treasures this weekend. Don't forget "Tea Cup Tuesday". Blessings, Martha
