Scenes like this make my heart pitter patter.
Garage sales and outdoor markets are starting up for the year and I am soooooooooo...
(your welcome coca cola for the free ad)
I seriously think I have issues. There are a few things that I cannot pass up buying, and old books is one of them. Do I need them?? no. Do I HAVE to have them because they are 50¢....YES!
-The Running of the Tide: I bought it because it was in good shape, a good color, and I am still obsessing over that font!
-The Yellow Boat. It is adorable. They boy loved reading it, and I loved the cute illustrations.
-Cowboy Tommy. (1933!!) It is so cute. And so politically incorrect it's hilarious (right now we're at the part where Tommy meets the Indian family:)
-What Will We Eat Today? I collect old cookbooks. And I loved the lady on the front.
Roy Rogers. uhhh....ok I bought it for the sole purpose that is was cute.
You guys. What if I become a hoarder??
Someone call Oprah.
But I have no regrets after buying this little red chair to go with the boy's (previously thrifted) little blue desk. (although I do regret not making his bed before I took this photo, whoops, and 3 years later I am still terribly regretting that sickening paint color....)
So, in conclusion:
1. I get really excited when I see junk out in peoples yards.
2. I may or may not become a hoarder someday, because I can't say no to cheap adorable books (really though, when do I stop....I will not just pass them up...do I sell them?? my mom just laughed at that)
3. The boy's room. Cute chair, vomit inducing walls.
