:: Girls Day Out ::

Hello everyone, I hope it has been a wonderful weekend wherever you are! We finally had sunshine! It was pretty windy…but we will take it!

I had a girls day out with my blogging bud Kindra from At Home With K! We hit the road in the morning and we were off to go junkin, thriftin, anqtique-in, & lunchin! And we had quite a few laughs along the way! We both forgot to get out our cameras throughout the day…but I did manage to snap a few photos of one of the antique shops we went to!

Who doesn’t love old windows?


One of each please…..


Loved these!


An old ice cream machine and a Roberts Dairy crate…really wanted the crate..but I left it behind.



The color and finish on this is fabulous!


Barb wire “wreaths”…..



I heart rusty things!!


Anything galvanized = Amazing!


Still don’t have one of these to call my own yet…maybe someday!


Here is a close up of the crate that I loved….just might have to go back and bring this one home!


It was such a fun day! I have to tell you…..Kindra is a professional thrifter, antique-er, junker…!! She really thinks things through….she gets the best deal…and doesn’t buy anything unless she has a plan or a place for it!…Me, not so much! I buy and then think of where I will put it. Not always a good thing! I only wish I had a fraction of her thought process and her “eye” for all things thrifty! I   cannot wait to see what she will do with the things she bought!

I will be back soon with pictures of what I bought! LOTS of great stuff!!

Head on over and pay Kindra a visit, you will get so much inspiration from her blog. Her ideas are endless and her tips for decorating on a budget are inspiring as well!

Here are a few links to some fun posts on her blog to get you started!

Most of her makeovers and transformations are FREE or under $10! Way to go Kindra!!

It was a much needed day out to recharge the batteries and get this next week started off on a positive note!!  Good times!! :)

    ~Blessings, Bonnie

  3. Sounds like you all had fun! Who wouldn't digging through all that good stuff? Kindra is pretty talented, I agree, I am more of a buy it and think later. Trying to change that, but I guess I am what I am! LOL!
    Have a good day!

  4. Sounds like a fun time! Can't wait to see what you purchased. I am itching to get out antiquing and junking too...finally have some free time to do it~yay! :)

  5. Sounds like a wonderful, fun day! Glad you had a good time! Nothing better than good company and junk! LOL!

  6. Sounds like ya'll had a great time!! I would have loved to be right in the middle!! I know we would all have so much fun together. That's my ideal perfect day being with great friends, lunchin, and thriftin! :) I can't wait to see all the goodies you bought. I've already been drooling over your new purse you posted over on FB.:):) :) Hope you have a great week.


  7. What a fun day you girls had, loved seeing the pictures. Looks like a great place. :)

  8. What great fun to have a day with a good friend!! Sounds like you had lots of fun. Can't wait to see your treasures!! I'm gonna check out Kindra's blog.

  9. Sounds like you had fun. I say be the buy now and worry where you'll put it later.I have lost a lot of neat things doing it the other way! Have fun.

  10. Hi Sarah, I LOVE the square Ice Cream freezer. They are quite rare. I had a wood one many years ago as part of my collection but have sold it all. You got GREAT finds and what a fun day.
    Sweet Blessings, Abbey

  11. LOL Yes, I think before I's Dave Ramsey whispering in my ear. HA! I had such a great time on Saturday Sarah! Can't wait to do another thrifting adventure again with you!

  12. Sounds like you two had a great time!

  13. I love old windows! That one looks a lot like mine. Lots of neat things you came across.

    Sounds like a great day! It's always so much more fun to go antiquing with a friend. I've only fought over one thing with a friend, lol! That's the only downfall of shopping with someone that likes the same things as you and is thrifty like you, haha!

    That is a neat crate... I hope you went back after it. =]


Thank you so much for visiting & for taking the time to leave a comment. I appreciate and enjoy each & every one! ~Sarah~
