"the goodest kind"...

yesterday morning ...after working out with my trainer...
little bit & i felt like doing some hunting!
hunting for some thrifty... fun... vintage... treasures!

more jello molds... to hold bits & baubles

IMG_3681 speaking of baubles... she found these pretties too!

we had SO much fun...
we genuinely enjoy shopping together...
stooping & peering looking for something that strikes our fancy!
we were two perfect peas in a pod...  
until... she lied herself down in the middle of the shop & said she was tired of WALKING!
OkAAAAAY... i took that as a hint she was ready to head home... dArN!


hard to believe it is already hump day...
i am ready to jump to the other side of the week... aren't you!

here's to jumping uP & oVeR...
jumping HiGh... reaching fAr... making the MoSt of the hump under our feet!

big hugs!

I have one of those egg baskets I use it to hold toys. My daughter who is 8 loves to go to flea makets and junk shops. Sooo much fun. We have saturday in Indiana, PJ day. All the stores are open between 5:00 am and 6:00 am and if you come in your PJ's you get really good sales. And to top it off all the stores serve coffee,hot coco and donuts:)
