Antique Mall Bargains Including Vintage Postcards: Friday's Find #191


Thank God it's thrifty Friday, Friends! Do you shop antique malls for hidden bargains? I know several bloggers who have booths at antique malls and I bet you know a few, too. I think at times there is a faulty assumption that items will be overpriced but that isn't always the case. This week's fabulous features are bargains scored at an antique mall that I visit occasionally. It's a favorite because some of the vendors offer prices comparable to those of thrift stores--it just takes a little hunting and knowing where to look. I adore vintage postcards and couldn't wait to tuck this pretty floral friendship card into a frame on my gallery wall, plus it's not the only one I found...

My Month in Numbers: February Edition



Hi there, Friends! Today's post is a departure from my usual. First of all, it's not a post about blog earnings or analytical stats--it's much more fun than that! When I read a post titled My Month in Numbers from Stephanie, blogger at Wife, Mommy, Me, I was intrigued and inspired. As I enjoyed seeing the numbers for the activities Stephanie chronicled, I imagined the events I might record. Come to find out, there's actually a link party hosted by Deena at Shoes to Shiraz--just in case you want to review your numbers and link up! So here's my version...
