back in the u.s.s.r.

after all that talk about what i want/need from thrift stores, i got the itch to go search for all of these lovely items. i can't say that i found them all, but i did find this gem for a mere $2.99. yep, you read that right, $2.99.

my favorite part is that it's so old, it still has this...
i'm so excited i found this!

and of course, no thrifting experience is complete without a few pairs of shoes.

 and i love this little plaque. i can't say i agree with what it says, but it gave me a little chuckle.
 it's called "to dotter on her marryin' day" 
it's full of advice from a "modder" to her "dotter" on the day of her wedding. insightful tidbits such as,
be cheery of face
tender and givin'
you make the home.
let him make the livin'
be by his side
through all of his ailin's
pray to the lord
bout him and yer failin's.

i think i will save this for when eva gets married. classic!

a pretty good thrifting weekend, if i do say so myself!

  1. nice globe! so awesome. i love the stand. my thrifted globe is also so old that it has the USSR on it. ha!

  2. wow, i'm so impressed you found a globe like this for so cheap!! nice work! i love that it is on a tall stand like that.

  3. I admit that I am a bit jealous of your globes. We must not go to the same thrift stores!
    My best bud is coming to visit on the weekend of your pop up shop! I am so looking forward to seeing her. Will you help her find something super pretty??

  4. we hope to find everyone something super pretty!!! of course...tell her to email us a list of wants/needs if she wants!
