It has been a crazy summer with our two week vacation, one family wedding in St. Augustine and the second family wedding in Vermont which left little time for thrifty adventures. Tomorrow we set out on the Christmas in July thrift store tour. But for now, a pile of books from yesterday, two little acryllic seashell goodies, Yankee collectable pillows for Jeff and a photo of a Ben and Jerry's tour ticket. That is in here because if you get near Stowe, Vermont, don't miss that place. The tour is a laugh a minute, and thrifty because admission is only $3.00! The fresh air and mountain scenery is all free.
