Better Than Thrifted Items

Several years ago, I had a lovely young lady who had nothing better to do than to come help me in my classroom. No, her mom was the computer teacher and she had to come over anyhow...so, she chose ME to help. I know, I need A LOT of help! I save the therapy lesson for some other time.
Anyhow, that Jr. High girl is now 30 and we've become friends.
She found my blog and has decided that we have very similar tastes.
So, I invited her over because she wanted to see my simple home and drink some of my amazing lemonade.

She came with gifts that she thought I would like.
She thought RIGHT!!

How could I say NO to these?
I offered to pay her for them, but she refused.

Look at this vintage suit...makes me want to go work in an office somewhere.
Oh, wait, I DO work in an office somewhere....
well, it is at my mother's and the dress is pretty casual.
Look at the single dragonfly hovering the gingham ribbon!

Love this skirt! Talk about feeling all light and airy.....
A CORDLESS RETRO PHONE!!! Can you hear me squealing?
It is a big ol' chunky phone.....and it WORKS!!!
Thanks so much Carrie! I'm so glad we get to be friends now...not because you brought me amazing gifts, because you are an amazing woman!!

That phone is way cool. And I really like the polka dot dress, too. You're right, gifts are much better than thrifted.

I am so jealous she got to try your lemonade!

yes, two hours, but that only has to be done a couple times a week, just to water the baskets and pots on the patio is no big deal.

we got an estimate for 7000 for a sprinkler system. So ragging the hose around seems very reasonable to me.
