My Fairy Thrift-Sister

You guys remember my sorority sister Dana who scored the card catalogs a 
while back and so graciously gifted me one.  
Well girls got major thrifty mojo because look what she just scored for me off 
her towns facebook tag sale page.

Can. You.  Stand.  It!!!

Since my  mom lives fairly close to her in CT she is going to pick it up for me.  And since glass and my kids don't mix very well (and to be honest glass and me don't mix very well as I just got two stitches in my arm after shattering a Pyrex dish) I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it yet but I do know it will involve hours of staring and maybe drooling before I may have to reluctantly and probably with a gun to my head place it in my Class Booth for Sale or gift it to my eldest sister who's birthday is swiftly approaching and who has already threatened death if this doesn't happen.

Do you all have one of those tag sale Facebook pages for your town? 
 I tried to find one for Richmond but came up empty.

And please visit my fairy thrift sisters blog Mastering Mommy Brain.  Not only does she have major thrift mojo but she also has a way of making us mommies feel normal amidst our crazy lives!


  1. AHHHH!!!! What I can't stand is the suspense! Your picture isn't showing up and I'm left hanging. What a sweet friend!

  2. okay. I might need to make friends with your fairy friend now too. This is ah-mazing!

  3. THRILLED to pass this along. I saw it on the site and immediately thought of you. Can't wait to get it into my hands, and over to your mom! BTW - you are going to be so proud of some of my recent finds/redos...and to think I had no idea you could repaint furniture until I started reading your blog. Dear lord :)

  4. Dangit....I want a Fairy Thrift-sister...I would even take a Fairy Thrift-mother, father, brother, friend, random stranger, person off the street...ok...maybe not the last one.

  5. Beautiful! I haven't had good thrifting luck lately, but you're inspiring me - I need to go shopping now!
