The Crazy Suburban Mom: Fabuthriftingtabulous

Thursday, May 19, 2011


 I had so many errands today I combined all that gas guzzling with shopping at places I don't get to often because the price of gas offsets any SCORES! I might find.

I went to a thrift store I've missed very much and found two things; one I needed and one I had to have.

blue heaven pattern

This here is a Blue Heaven Fire King bowl  that I all but tackled on sight. That was the had to have or I'll die. SWEAR, I will.

And it was totally worth cleaning up the doody on the floor when I got home.


Left by someone who shall remain nameless.

I didn't show the whole bowl because I need to really clean it; looks like it's been living under the family mule these last fore score and twenty. 

The other thing, funny story.  Last week I decided I needed a crumb sweeper for my new dining room table because I keep a table cloth on it.  And wow, if I didn't find a Fuller Brush one from the 1950's ...Maybe the 60's, not sure.

I don't have a picture of that either because it's soaking.  Looks like it belonged to the same bemuled family that owned the fire king. 

Plus I was close to Wal-Mart. and about six months ago I found maybe eight or nine shirts on clearance for two and three dollars - Thought perhaps I could replicate that.  I didn't get nine but I did get five which was still Fabuthriftingtabulous.

I'm off  de-schmutz my bargains and don a new shirt!

Woo-hoo on the blue heaven bowl, I loves me some blue heaven. I scored 2 of my mixing bowls for free, got the 3rd for $5 and the 4th in with a box of the dinner plates, tea cups, saucers, etc for $5 total. The rest of my collection I've not been quite so thrifty with. I spent a pretty penny on the coffee pot and on the berry bowls. But I justify it because they're our everyday dishes. So we get lots of use of them. Brings the $/usage ratio down to thrifty levels, lol.

I want to see your crumber. I used to work in a fancy shmancy restaurant as a teen/20 something and we had to crumb the tables constantly. Haven't seen one since!

Yay! That's great! We just went grocery shopping and I spent 18.50 on 67.22 dollars worth of stuff! I got lots.
