thursday thrifted: during my 'thrift break'

One of my major goals at the moment is paying off my credit card debt. I have three cards and those suckers have be maxed out for ages. The good news is that I squashed my credit's good name early in my adult life and due to my irrational spending and slow payments my limits are rather low compared to most my age (silver lining, am I right?). What all of this means in my day to day is less thrifting than normal. It's not that I don't visit the store; but now instead of dropping $40 of stuff that I love but don't necessarily have room for I spend $15 on useable items. I've been told that this is fiscally responsible.

Anywho, it's been a while since my last thrifted post so I thought I'd share some of the highlights of my most selective choices.

A light pleather side bag that will be great for soon-to-come bike rides. A new set of place mats for Georgia to stain with tomato sauce. A little red album perfect for Instax shots and a fancy vintage binder for my organizational needs. The fabric in the background will soon by my new kitchen curtains - I can't wait!

Jesse saw this and was thrilled at the thought of me going vegan. Yeah, but no. I bought this for the baking recipes because I like the idea of vegan baking every once in a while. Also, it's not a bad thing to have a recipe or two on hand when this gal comes to town.

I picked up this duo for $4 each at a Value Village in Peterborough.  I keep walking them through the house hoping to find the perfect spot but nothing seems right quite yet.  I don't care if I have to store them in the basement forever; they will stay with them.  
During this shoot my DSLR died. I'm going to try some CPR on it (CPR on DSLR, OMG!) but I'm not holding out hope. My Nikon has been showing signs of impending death. It's a sad, sad time for my shutter clicking finger.  Such is the life of a blogger I suppose.

Hope you all have a rad ass Wednesday.  I'll be back tomorrow with the newest installment of Thread Share!
