I have to run out of thrifty luck soon, right?? SCORE!

I just found what will be my winter coat at the thrift store! It's hard to tell but it's a pink/brown mix (and the lining is pink). I cropped out my head because I look like a hobo today. I loooove this coat! Yes, that's my rake on the ground behind me. I gave up.

Look at the adorable cuffs!

Then I got a great roll of fabric:

and this teapot/carafe in a great mustard color (see the green rock in the background? My friend Tara made it and I lurve it :

And OMG I found a Cathrineholm bowl at the thrift store today!!!!:

Probably my best find ever! It was $2.00. YES!!

P.S. Julia went to a birthday party at a roller rink today and came home with a mustache:

Have a great weekend, everyone!!
