out of the bin: volume three

i think next week i am going to do this earlier in the week, like tuesday or wednesday.  i can't really control myself and always hit the outlet on monday or tuesday and it would be a lot easier to get it all uploaded right away.  i rescued so many pretty things this week.  so many!  i only took one awful blurry in-the-bin photo, though.

do you see it?

a fellow outlet addict who i see ALL THE TIME had an identical one in her cart a few weeks ago and my heart sunk because i wanted it so much.  i even went up to her and was kind of passive aggressive, like, "hey, i really really like that.  that is so crazy cute." and i capped it off with serious stare.

but there, now! it is! for me!

i also picked up this book that day.  caroline in europe, why you gotta be so cute? i really wish i had taken these photos with my big camera and not my iphone so you could really see the colors, but you get the idea. CUTE.

oh yes, and the three little kittens puppet storybook. because you really can't ever have too many puppet storybooks.

i also bought the cutest kitchen curtains i've ever seen that day.  then had a tragedy with them in the washing machine.  only one of the six panels survived.  i'll post a photo after i make the surviving piece into cafe curtains and hang (it) them.

so, that was monday.

but, of course, i went back today and bought more.

(PS. do you guys want the linky, or no?  i will put one up next week when i put up my post if you want.  i will aim for tuesday.  remember, IN THE BIN then OUT OF THE BIN.  or shelf.  or basement.  or garage sale table.  or whatever.  see ya next week!)

  1. That fan is so fun!

    We have one of the Three Little Kittens books (I think it's the same one - don't know if there are more) and it has been read so much the spine has worn out!

    Um, so yeah.

    Seriously, though - such an eye on you. I wish we could thrift together - and leave our millions of children with their respective fathers so we could really concentrate.
    And yes. Linky!

  4. Oh my, where oh where are these bins?! I want to visit this place!
    PS I love your fan...and your books...and I suspect I'd love your curtains. Don't you love that at least you ruined something perhaps that only cost cents instead of mega-dollars. (translation: I dun that before.)
