Oh, newly-discovered Goodwill. You were good to us today:
Soft summery sheets. (for swirly-girly dresses)
A green metal bird bucket. (any inspiration on how to put it to use?)
A pretty yellow teapot with a crackle finish (by the same company as these faves of mine)
And best of all, a shiny-new pair of green chucks for a five year old. (erin, are you jealous? you probably have a pair of your own.)
And of course a few books:
The girls are really digging reference books lately. Ever since my sister (who needs to expand her blog now that the puppies are sold. She’s so stinkin’ creative!!) bought them a horse reference manual for Christmas.
And another children’s book whose illustrations caught my eye; and a Book of Common Prayer for Dan.
When we turned into the parking lot this morning and the girls discovered we’d found a new Goodwill store, they squealed with pure joy. You would have thought I’d told them tomorrow’s Christmas. I’ve trained them well.
And Emma is the ultimate deal-maker once we’re in there:
"Mom, if you’ll just let us look at the toys FIRST, I will let you look at all the fabric you want!"
She’ll let me?? What a girl.
