So I had a successful trip to the Salvation Army on Montrose again. Two weeks after I found these Temporama bowls and salad plates I found three dinner-sized plates. I'm going to sell them all on ebay this week. I like them, but certainly don't need any more china, and apparently they're collectible. I also found this Fireking cup (above), which also should bring some cash in on ebay. It's kind of fun learning what's collectible and trying to make some profit on my thrifting. It's hard to part with stuff sometimes, but our small, 1,200-square-foot (if that!) condo makes it easier. I also found some designer linens worth reselling, too.
Now onto stuff I'm keeping--fabric, of course. Look at that cute curtain with patridges (I think) and little Dutch people like Sarah keeps finding. That cute print on the right is also an old curtain. Love the pink puppy (and I'm not even a dog lover).
This is all fabric remnants: (from left) a summery madras plaid in pink, orange and yellow; aa doggie print, some Waverly pink print, and then pink felt.
On Friday Ed and I watched Downfall, a really compelling German movie about Hitler's last days. Leave it to my husband to pick out a 2 1/2-hour movie with subtitles! I love foreign films, but I can't knit and read them at the same time. Then on Saturday, while babysitting our friends' little boy, Lincoln, we watched Thank You for Smoking, which was good, too. Two and a half stars (Downfall is definitely four.)
We also started the Great Bathroom Remodel of 2007 this weekend. I'll post photos later. We're currently in the middle of it and sharing a bathroom. Wish us luck--we credit two bathrooms with saving our marriage!
