Birthday Thrifting

Today is my birthday and lots of kind folks told me after I got the kids on the bus I should be sure to do something nice for myself.
Naturally I went thrifting.  It is such a silly thing that makes me so happy.  Sadly it was kind of a dud day. In the store that gives you half off on your birthday I couldn't even find anything to buy!  Ah well.   The thrill is in the hunt.
Some crochet thread, some baker's twine (apparently some happy crafter back in the day used it too - EVERYTHING comes back around) and a vintage metal frame.  This is lacquer box  is number two so you know what that means.  Yes peeps, I feel a collection coming on.  Again...

Feeling a bit ponderous today.  I officially have 364 days left in my 30s.  Wondering what I want to make of them.  When I hit the big 40 where do I want to be?  What do I want to be sure I've done?  How do I actively reach the next milestone in a way that lets me be ok with where I've been?  Yes, deep thoughts indeed.
What do I want to be when I grow up?  What color is my parachute?
Thinking, thinking, thinking...
In other news, anyone else not getting comments in their e-mail accounts?  E-mails stopped showing up a few days ago.  I like to respond to comments via e-mail so if you were kind enough to leave a comment, I'm not ignoring you.  I just can't figure out how to get to you!  If anyone has an answer or a fix I am all ears.
Still a few days left in my awesome Gorilla Glue giveaway.  If you haven't yet entered, what on earth are you waiting for?  With three prize packs being offered the odds really are "ever in your favor" (So sorry.  It's been Hunger Games central around here for the past week.  Every so sorry!).

Happy Birthday to you. Did the thrift store give you a rain check? Looks like you did score a few fun treasures.

Happy Birthday...Don't be fooled, being in your 30's, 40's and now that I am in my 50's...it just keeps getting better. Love the wisdom and the wealth.

Happy Belated Birthday! I sure wish you would have found some exciting goodies, but I guess it's always a good day when you can spend it thrifting!
No problems with comments, but a couple of days ago, it said that my blog had been removed! PANIC CITY! Three years of work down the drain! Couldn't even log into Blogger. Finally I got to a page that said they would text me a code to use. It worked and my blog was immediately back. Time to back up the blog, I think!

Happy belated birthday! Birthday thrifting is fun!! I hit some sales on my birthday last year and found some great scrapbooking sales. (yay) That means this year will be a dud. I have the book about color is your parachute, I need to read it. What do I want to be when I grow up is such a great question. Happy pondering!!!
