Wicker Goodies

Last week, before the flu overwhelmed our home, I found this great old wicker fern stand at Dogs and Cats for $7.00. I know that is a hoya in it, there are no pretty, fresh ferns to be found right now at the garden shops. But I keep looking. It was white and gray peeling paint, and I had a can left of Nutmeg satin spray paint left from when I did last year's wicker table (which the kitties think is a very pretty cat bunkbed). So on the pool deck, pretty, freshened up, nutmeg colored wicker goodies!! The cat bunkbed/table was even less than the fern stand, if I remember correctly, about $5!

Fossil bag and Agatha too

Yesterday at a new (to us) store in Vero called Serendipity I scored. It says thrift store on the awning, but it's thrifty upscale consignment. Beautiful clothing, all designer, but too much in sizes 6,8,10 for this crowd! I fell hard for the Fossil bag. Suede and leather, numbered etc, and still with the key in super pristine shape for $12.00. And three great old Agatha Christie books, nicely bound, from the 1960's. They were all three for $5.00. Not my lowest priced thrift trip, but I am in love with all.
