Thrifted for $8.48

This old menu cover is awesome.

This sweater has to be at least 25 years old. I thought it was interesting. There’s definitely a fine line between frumpy and cool sometimes, but I think this could be cool. It just needs to be paired with more modern looking items.

This H&M cream and black cardigan was cute.

I liked these black and white pants.

And I thought this cross stitch book could be useful. The cover and many of the projects inside aren’t particularly interesting to me. But as someone that knows very little about cross stitching, it’s nice to have a very basic knowledge book.

And I got this Madonna cd with many of her old hits on it. The downside is that one of the songs, “Like a Prayer,” was damaged. But everything else was okay, so overall it was a good buy.

Altered: Navy Pants

I bought these old lady pants at a thrift shop thinking I might be able to alter them. And I did. I cut about four inches off of each pant leg, and then sewed elastic at the bottom of each leg. It was simple and I finished it in a couple of hours.

Truthfully, I’m not sure if I will wear these pants out in the world; they might just be pants I wear at home. They’re pretty comfortable as they have an elastic waistband. And I like that it has pockets.

Thrifted for $4.50

I love this red, black and blue striped skirt. It’s awesome—it has an elastic waistband and is very comfortable. And it has pockets.

These navy pants scream little old lady. I bought them thinking I might be able to alter them.

Men’s Star Wars shirt that I won’t wear out in the world. But fine as a pajama shirt.

And measuring cups I got an estate sale for $1. There’s no one cup size, which is unfortunate, but it has all the other sizes so I thought it was worth it.

Things I Didn’t Buy 74

I really liked this old sci-fi book—two books in one. Each side of the book was a cover for a different story. I just love the art on these covers. The first side: The Light of Lilith.

The second side: The Sun Saboteurs.

Next was the book: The Joy of Nothing.

It’s really just an empty notebook.

Really nice design on this Good Housekeeping Cook Book.

I liked this Building America book cover.

This home appliance book cover is so simple and bold.

Things I Didn’t Buy 73

I liked this painted picture that has a Russian feel to it. I love the colors, design and how intricate it is.

These two 1970s 3D pictures are pretty awesome.

And I liked this cute mirror. 

Finally, the Montgomery Ward scale was cool.
