I didn’t shop at any thrift store for 2 months. (since before Christmas) I got a little burned out and needed a break. It was nice to save some money and also not to bring more things into my house that I didn’t have room for. lol
But when I finally went a few days ago I found 3 things that I ‘couldn’t live without’!
My favorite find, a box covered in shells ($1).
It’s an old wooden cigar box!
The two books were only 50 cents each.
I have all of the Jane Austen books but this was a prettier copy than the one I had. It’s RED!
And here’s my stack of books from the library this week.
I don’t read every book that I check out from the library. That’s the fun of having a library close by. I can pick up what ‘looks’ good and see how I like them once I’ve read a few pages. I actually read at least 50 pages before I determine if I like it. And sometimes I’m just not in the mood for a certain story.
I read this book last night but decided not to continue. Too sad. I can’t read a sad sad story right now.
I may try this one next. I’m in the mood for a Western.
And if you love a beautifully written Southern story about a precious little girl named Starla, read this book! I gave it my highest rating! I wanted to adopt her by the end of the book!
I’m joining Ricki Jill for Literary Friday.
And the Friday 56 HERE .

My quote is from Whistling Past the Graveyard by Susan Crandall, page 56..
"He smiled so handsome and handed me a bag of popcorn. She smiled in a remembering way. I was so nervous I couldn't even eat it. Took it home and ate a few pieces every day for a whole week.
I decided I would never, ever eat popcorn again.”
Are you reading something good this week?
