I haven't been in the buying mode much lately as I am more likely to be selling or getting rid of things in preparation for our move.
After experiencing my little lapse in memory skills yesterday, it was apparent I've not been stopping to smell the thrift stores often enough these days.
Well, I think this is actually the one in another part of town, but it's the best I could do off of google.
I headed to our favorite nearby thrift with one of my favorite people and keen-eyed CG spotted this piece of pressed aluminum - of which she collects and owns a fair amount. She immediately put it back and I hardly gave it a glance because I thought, the last thing I need is a napkin holder.
Out of the corner of my eye I saw some familiar images that are close to my heart.
And it was under $2 of which I had a few in my clutches.
I thought the details were great and had to take a good look at the area I grew up in - suburbs of Toronto.
And of course, my birthplace, Montreal.
Oui, I am from Quebec, mon amis.
Didn't want a napkin holder, but I thought it could be used to hold cards - you know, thank you cards, birthday cards, etc.
And it's sitting right next to the lamp my dad used to have on his desk in the den in Toronto.
I like it!
And it doesn't weigh much!
And I feel good!
Thanks for all your kind comments - they made me feel less, oh what's the word?
Have a great weekend!
P.S. Inspection came up with a few annoying items, nothing too major. So now we move on to next phase which is buyers' financing institution's appraisal.
