TEXAS THRIFTING

Hi Everyone!  I am having a wonderful visit with my Mom!  I am so lucky to be able to spend time with her.  We did go out to the Salvation Army the other day and I found a few goodies!
 PYREX!!  this little #473-B casserole with no lid was $2.59
My first piece in this pattern "Forest Fancies"
I also found two little Halloween items
 Crazy Cute Ghost 79cents
Orphan Salt shaker for 29cents

Tomorrow we are going to visit my brother and sis-in-law
I can't wait to see them.  They live about 1 hour from Mom.
I am missing MR ALC and Charlie but have 
this cutie to snuggle with sometimes
Mr Sam taking a catnap!  He looks a little like Charlie doesn't he!

Always,
Linda

Awwwww Linda. That kitty is darling. (But not as cute as Charlie, right? hee hee) The Halloween decor you found made me chuckle. Very, very cute. Guess Texas has some pretty good bargains, eh?

Hey, by the way, is your Mom anywhere near Lakewood Church? I love Joel Osteen. He's soooo inspirational. His church, Lakewood, is in Houston.

Take care, Linda. SOOOOO happy you are having fun! Susan

Linda you and your pyrex! You have such a neat knack finding it! That kitty looks like Charlie! Too cute! we are in the process of trying to move. What a nightmare and no one wants my sweet kitties! Pray we can rent this place we will see tomorrow as the lady seems more fair the others we have had to deal with! Have a good visit with your mom. Anne

Hi Linda,
Love the pyrex,you pyrex lovin girl you!!!

I'm so glad that you are spending time with your Mom, those times are precious for sure.

I'm sure Charlie is missing you too. Gizzy is sitting here right now looking at his picture. I think she has a crush on him.

I just knew you'd go thriting there - you'll have to ship that all home! Nice things though - can't wait to go thrifting when you get home. I found some new places to look!

I love to thrift when I travel, especially when it's in a different part of the country where people might not covet the same stuff you do. I envy you being with your Mom and I know you treasure your time together. You and a million other bloggers have finally prodded me into pulling out the Halloween/Fall storage tubs and try to decorate the house (I can just haer my husband, "Hey, I thought you were getting RID of stuff!").

Psssst....Charlie.....wake up buddy....you're Mom is two timing....I think you need to call Mr. Sam and make sure he understands that your Mom already has a fur love with you! Go ahead Charlie, you don't want him moving in do you???!

So glad to hear you are having a great time visiting your Mom! I cannot wait until next month when I get to visit my parents. Mr. Sam does look a bit like Charlie. I like your new Forest Fancies casserole. Your orphan pumpkin salt shaker and little ghost are too cute!
