(Savannah and I)
(Terrace-Cinderella & myself)
I did manage to squeeze in some thrifting/ antique shopping and I hit the JACKPOT! My first find was this $1.00 ( I think it was a) planter in the shape of bamboo,
I plan on hanging it on the wall and keeping my wooden stiring spoons in its little slots.
The little Santa Mug was found next at my favorite thrift store Value Village snagged for 17 cents! Next I happened upon the sheet music $1.00 a book...
I picked up Frank Sintatra's arrangement of "Lily Belle" (circa 1945), and the "HOOP-DEE-DOO" Polka (circa 1950). When I got back to the Theater I caught my friend Shara ( who is also one of the best Music Directors at Wichita Theater) on a break and asked if she would play the "Hoop-dee-doo" Polka sheet music for me, well after a few rounds the tune was so catchy that friend Joe (Director of Tom Sawyer) joined in and sang vocals. Sorry for the poor visual quality, its REALLY dark in the theater, but they sound fantastic!
(Wasn't that fun?! SO worth the $1.00 investment!)
Next I saw and nearly passed up the 2nd best find of the day, this amazing 14" turquoise boomerang lamp.
The Best find of the day (and a much needed Item at the Casablanca) was hands down this...
(How neat is that?!)
I was already feeling guilty for buying a $25 lamp, but this was just to cool and perfect for the Casablanca not to get. So I begrudgingly payed the $15 (Happy Valentines to me!) I'm sure once my mother reads this post I will be getting a long lecture about how I "Spend money like a sailor on leave" however Its going to be used, and it was a deal.
All in all a pretty fun and fantastic weekend!
