Over the fourth of July, we traveled to Greenville, Illinois to spend some time with my husband's family and watch two of our kids perform with the Northern Lights Homeschool Marching Band in the St. Louis VP Parade. While we were in Greenville, I took my daughter Liza and my niece Sophie thrift shopping. Because you have to go thrift shopping when you are visiting another town. It's a rule. My rule. Greenville has a fabulous thrift store. We found treasures at great prices. I scored some 70s stuff. A macramé wall hanger for $1.00! Yeah, you read right...One. Dollar. Can you ever have too much macramé in a house? I'm gonna go ahead and answer that for you. The answer is no. No, you can't.
And then I found a Bob Marley t-shirt for $2.25. The t-shirt isn't actually from the 70s, but it feels like the 70s. And it's Bob Marley. And listening to Bob Marley is like sitting at the lake on a perfect summer day. And wearing a Bob Marley t-shirt is like sitting with Bob at the lake on a perfect summer day, while he sings to me. Only me. And he croons, "Don't worry about a thing." And I lean my head on his shoulder and say, "That's wise advice, Bob."
Finally, the créme de la créme...a vintage white sundress for $4.00! It is in excellent condition. Simply divine. I want to put on this dress and wear it while I walk through the woods. Or walk in a field.
Or walk on a beach in Brazil.
Or walk through the Italian countryside to my villa.
