We slept until 6 and got back on the road at 6:30. We were met with more bumper to bumper traffic throughout NC, it took us about 7 1/2 hours to navigate I-95 and reach SC.
Everyone was very happy to see that giant sombrero in the sky!
I am sooooooo tired. Oh, btw, if you're wondering- we are seasoned veterans of this trip, having made it 10 times in the past 13 years. We have never experienced the maddening traffic that we did over these past 27 hours.
A good night's sleep is calling!

I had another wonderful weekend of thrifting. All out, a total of $31 was spent for this terrific haul- scored big in the area of Pyrex, getting several promotional pieces
It took me nearly 45 minutes, but I managed to rearrange the only TWO cupboards I use for display and fit all but one divided casserole into them.

Has anyone else noticed how barren the consignment and charity shops have been lately?! Every time I go, the shelves seem sparse on vintage goodies- but my dry spell ended this past weekend when I added these pieces to my collection.
A beautiful yellow (0)503 fridgie, with lid, my first piece of yellow- $12, but I couldn't leave it there in such pristine condition! (put it to quick use with some red cabbage slaw!)
I am linking up today to the Coloradolady for Vintage Thingie Thursday and Brambleberry Cottage for Time Travel Thursday. Head on over to these great blogs and check out all the other vintage goodies people are bragging about!

This weekend I worked on my bedroom closet. I thought it was fitting, since I have also been purging myself of some extra LB's since January and this week I crossed the 20 pounds lost mark!
Unfortunately, one of the things that comes with a small ranch house is small bedrooms with small closets. No such thing as a "master bedroom with walk-in closet and en suite" around here!
I share a barely double closet with my husband and typically, it looks like a bomb went off in there.
I think I am also past needing to hang onto things that I've had since pre marriage and children (15+ years!) I am NOT going to wear that dress or those shoes any time soon.
I am ridding myself of this mound.
Maggie's Handcraft Studio) holds all my bigger purses so I can swap out easily and keep everything accessible.
