Thrifting scores abound today! We went to the annual Buddy Foundation Garage Sale and found some great items at terrific prices.
My finds were few but delightful, and cost a mere $4.50...yes, that is yet another apron...and yes, I know that I have a problem...I'm nearing the 160 mark with my apron collection...
But is was the girls who scored big time at the sale. They found tons of great clothes...shirts, pants, jammie pants, for a grand total of $14.00.
This is an example of their frugal shopping. Both outfits...lounging outfits that is...cost them a total of $3.00. Good shopping and cool outfits, a nice combination.
We also drove up to Round Lake Park District tonight for the annual Studio of Dance recital. Melissa, Christopher's girlfriend, is a dance teacher for their studio. It is nice to journey to share in the work she has been doing all year long. It was a lovely surprise to see her wearing a vintage 1950's dress we gave her for her birthday years ago. She still looks so sweet in it.
It was a special night for yet another reason. Melissa choreographed one of her ballet numbers to music written and performed by our dear friends, and multi-talented musicians Will and Robin Kramer. It was wonderful hearing their haunting song "Ten Years" and seeing it put to a beautiful dance by our oh so talented Melissa. A very lovely night.
