Raining Cats & Dogs …& Porcelain

blue and white porcelain

cat: Wallpaper magazine, dog: Laini & Samin

Thursday afternoon I made my thrift store rounds hoping to find something along the lines of a matching set of console tables. No such luck. I did, however, hit the blue and white porcelain jackpot at the Salvation Army …all of which will soon find a home in our master bedroom.

    Damn!..that’s an expensive trip to the thrift shop!

    That’s about the cheapest ticket to get these days. Don’t get caught actually moving. I friend just got snagged on the phone and turning right on red = $1200…cash money.

    I do have the new ticket price menu.
    there is something on there for over $1800. A seriously desperate state.

    Maegan, Couldn’t you go to traffic court and nicely contest (or whatever they call it) your parking ticket? Dress conservatively, and tell the truth. Maybe they will reduce the fine. If you have the time, it might be worth it. You might say that your are devistated, etc. Just a thought!

    P.S. You might mention that you are trying to save money and contribute to helping less fortunate people by shopping at the thrift shop. (Which is very true.) Etc. etc.
