Treasure Hunt Finds

Hello Fellow Thrifters and Friends,

   It seems lately the only time I have for this little blog is to post the treasure hunt finds post. *sigh* but my busyness is for a great reason because mr Joyful Thrifter got a new job, and its really busy right now. We are super thankful for his new career! We did get a chance to go to an amazing moving sale recomonded by my mom this weekend. It was a vintage hoarders dream house! It was full, and I mean full of vintage stuff. I actually was overwelmed, and not impressed because there was so much. I love the thrill of digging through a box at a garage sale and finding the one good item at the sale, but it was still fun.

Here is what I found

Two sweet mugs 2 for $1.00

Look they stack!

Ok this little dinasour guy was just about the cutest thing ever, and the man just gave him to me. I was so excited to have him come home. 

This can go with my ever growing obsession with type writers, and for $1.00 it's a perfect fit. 

Oh I love handwritten notes inside old books. It makes it more special. 

This is Mr Joyful Thrifter and I. I just love this print, and really I bought it because the pink and blue owl reminds me of my sweet hubby and I. $1.00 brought this cute print home. 

The only word that comes to mind when I look at these little owls is "content", and that is how I feel with my hubby. 

I do hope you all had a wonderfully thrifty week!

  1. I LOVE the floral coffee mug and especially the owl print! Great treasures!

  2. Wish I had saved my typing manuals. I still need help with business letter format since it's rare I have to type one. And I sure remember those funny little "t"s with the "tail" that would go up. I thought that was so cool and made them that way for a long time.
    Hope you have a great week.

  4. Happy about your hubby's new career - and I KNOW what you mean about liking to "dig" through a box of stuff. Actually, I search for the "free" box first!
