I went in Goodwill a couple days ago to see if I could find a few picture frames for the black and white photographs I took during my Fundamentals of Photography class last semester. I didn’t have much luck in that department, but I ended up buying a book (no surprise there), a pair of shoes, and a scarf. The book is Lucky by Alice Sebold. I’ve read her novel The Lovely Bones and was really impressed by it, so I’m interested to read this memoir. (Incidentally, I tried to read her other novel The Almost Moon and gave up after a few chapters.)
Here are the shoes. They were $8, which seems a little overpriced to me (come on – this is Goodwill after all), but they’re comfortable, cute, and in good condition, so I figured they were worth it.
The scarf is green and orange, which I thought was a nice contrast to my grey/black/denim wardrobe. It was only $1.99.
I went to a couple of estate sales with my mom one afternoon recently and found this incredible cutting board. And okay, I already have three cutting boards, but I cut up a lot of vegetables, man. Owning four cutting boards isn’t excessive at all, right?
The herbs/plants pictured are camomile, borage, absinth, thyme, peppermint, rosemary, sage, marshmallow, balsam, and vervain.
My aunt got me these measuring spoons for Christmas and I think they’re so pretty and decorative. (I actually already have two sets of measuring spoons in addition to these new ones. Are you noticing a pattern here?)
