One of the things in life that makes me happy is thrifting. It is an escape from troubles, the realities of life and the drudgery of work. Sally Stand-In comes to my rescue again continuing with my Summer Shift Stravanganza thrift shop find of this Petite Sophisticate plaid dress ($8 at Goodwill).
Where else can you spend $2.50 and get a darling Cabi paisley skirt and a pillow form? I know this Mountain Mist brand from their quilt batting (love their products - not a sponsored post). The pillow form I will use to make as a companion to the Shabby Chic wedding quilt here. I kept a couple of blocks along with some matching remnants.
Keeping the clothes horse happy - with thrifting I can add to my wardrobe without carrying a large credit balance at a major retailer. Something I did in my younger, more prosperous years. I can't understand why more people don't shop thrift but it is all good for me if they don't.
Changing gears - These past few years I have grown to love Thai food. Where I live there are few stellar Asian food restaurants. This week I attempted Chicken Coconut Curry, a recipe I pinned, and it was delicious. My first thought was, "It smells like a Thai restaurant!" The yellow and red curry pastes are amazing.
Suffering through another weekend and an upcoming week of 100+ degree weather. Ugh.
What makes you happy? Are you an escapist thrifter also?
