Awesome Thrift Store Kitchen

I have been keeping my eyes open while I’m out and about for a BOYS kitchen. So many that I’ve seen are gaudy or pink/purple. Ugh. Boys need to play-cook too! I went to the Salvation Army yesterday, and I found this gem! It was only $10, and I got a bag of food/dishes for $5. Maybe half of the bag was junk though, I but still think it was a good deal.

Apparently, one of his monsters needed a bath in the sink…

And we’re having wolf and seahorse for dinner… yum.

And then someone got jealous of me taking pictures of something that wasn’t him, hahaha.

Sweet Serendipity
*Not handmade. A comment saying that a woman found the same one lead me to do a little googling, and apparently Target carried it for $79 back in 2006. Still a great deal though!

Splash Park!

My house is almost unpacked. I’m pretty excited; maybe more so because I’ve gotten rid of so much stuff I can no longer call myself a hoarder. It’s refreshing. Some things I’m slower to get a handle on…like, I didn’t find our...
