~secondhand and thrifted~

I interrupt this program for a little bit about our weekend road trip. We went to Idaho to see long time friends. We are dog people…namely, Grand River Labrador people.

Each year, we meet up in a small town in North-Central Idaho to talk and learn about dogs. It’s been a couple of years since we had been. This year, we took Ben and Oak’s ashes up there to scatter in one of the rivers. It was a beautiful tribute to the dogs that have been a part of our lives since before we were married…really, Grand River has been the only constant in our life for 15 years.

The kids explored…

{I bring a thrifted quilt in the car wherever we go…it comes in handy at parks, on vacation, for baseball/football games, the beach, etc. You might also spy one of my thrifted thermos’…for hot chocolate, of course!}

Eight week old puppies.

Almost two week old puppies…their eyes weren’t even open yet.

They met lots of new people.

It was a much needed retreat for heart and soul. I like to call it the “church of dog”.

I did make a stop at a local secondhand store…

When I get a chance, I like to stop at thrift stores in the places we visit and bring home something to add to my collections.

Hoping to spray paint this fixture and hang it near the craft table where we need more light!

This was the LAST thing I picked up after about 10 rounds around a tiny little store packed with stuff. It is a chip and dip set with a nut bowl…all three for $10. It is GORGEOUS!

And, of course, another thermos to add to my collection!
