But today I had a few minutes to kill and stopped in to my favorite local thrift. I was just in there on Tuesday and so I didn't need to really spend a lot of time looking- just kind of cruise around and see if there was anything new... and look what I found!
It's turquoise with a fringe!
You know you want a close up of that amazing underside:
Tropical hibiscus in pink and white? Yes please!
And it has this giant long spike on the bottom so you can drive it into the ground when you're at the beach or the lake. (Not that I'm going to be doing that anytime soon, mind you.)
It didn't have a price on it- apparently they had just put it out and I had to drag it up to the register to find out if it was even for sale. Eight bucks later it was mine!
And as if that wasn't enough turquoise and pink flowers for you, I also found this adorable laundry hamper too, for $4. It's from the 40s, and wicker on the sides and back with a hand painted metal piece on the front.
Here's hoping there are a lot more blue skies and pink flowers on the way!
