Fleurs



Friday was half price day at Goodwill. I brought the kids with me and therefore came home with a number of random toys.

Allowing them to look at toys while I browsed through the dishes was my method of ensuring that they wouldn’t drive me crazy asking repeatedly to leave. Unfortunately, that means they actually find stuff they like. Which means more clutter.

I deliberately avoided the clothing because we all have quite enough clothing. I did buy some dishes and a large framed picture (which was not included in the half price sale—darn).

To make a long story short, they double charged me for the picture. I returned later that evening to get my money back and I decided (since I was alone) to pop into the Salvation Army shop.

I did a quick walk through of the store, and found that they had children’s clothing on sale for 99 cents. I deliberately didn’t look very closely, but this cute summer dress caught my eye. It has a French label and the word “fleurs” is written all over it.

Just the thing for my little one for a summer’s day.

  3. That's so cute! I have found I cannot do Goodwill with my daughter... she tolerates most shopping trips, but any kind of slow-down-and-look shopping is impossible without a scene. :)

    1. Thanks Laura. I know what you mean. Actually, I had to threaten to leave the store and everything in the cart. She wanted to buy weird, broken things.

  10. Oh, that is just the cutest dress! I love it. How sweet. Thank you for sharing at TTF and have a great day!

    On a side note, I think you were going to do a guest blogger post for me (and probably sent the finished post to me) but, for whatever reason (besides the insanity that is my life these days) I can't find it. Could you drop me an email (diann63@gmail.com) if you still want to do this. I am so sorry if I screwed up things. that seems to be happening a lot to me these days!
