Nifty and Thrifty Friday

T.G.I.F!

Today was such a lovely day! I didn't have to go into the office, so I stayed in my PJs till 11 doing laundry and then helped out at the local food pantry that has ties with my church. 

Then I caught up on the Glee Project and organized my Pinterest boards. 

I also took these pictures of some lovely thrift finds that I found lately that aren't really Melmac or clothes/accessories. 



This lovely Louis Sherry chocolate box I got at an indoor yard sale up at school for some ridiculously low price of 30 cents. They are from around the 30's apparently which is pretty ballin'. They are also relatively common from all the cheap listings on Etsy (check it out here). Anyway, it is a perfect fit to throw all my chunky jewelry that doesn't tangle. 




Also, I recently scored this amazing vintage suitcase for $2.60! Yeah-- that is only about .87 per piece! Fantastic. I used the little one when I went on the overnight to the mile long yard sale on the 4th. It really is a great size for overnight. And that hat box? So swoon worthy,  right? 













Well, I got to go my dad is outside my house honking; I'm off to go to out to eat with the fam! Have a great Friday night. 

xoxo, 
Laura
