7QT - Thrift Shop Icon Eggs and Solitaire-y Ne'er-Do-Wells.
Over the last few weeks I have been reading the two-book series of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. (I took a break this past week because I needed to focus on midterms.) But the books were inspired by old photographs found in bins at thrift stores and flea markets...you've probably seen them. I thought it was a great idea!! So today I went to a thrift store and finally found some here in town (I found some in the town I previously lived in, too, but these are the first I've come across here.) I found a few gems. I'll show you below!
|This is the one I found the most striking.|
I also found the following two intriguing.
|What are they hiding behind their backs...?|
And this one here?? Yeah. It looks all normal and everything....
But turn it around, and...
|..."sort of a druggist" [druggist?]. Hmm.|
The thrift store I went to was a new one to me, and I thought it was kind-of cool. They also had figurines of this Nigerian Santa:
And this obviously Pentecostal angel:
And this. I thought this was really cool and bought it. It is a wooden egg about the size of my hand. Are icons on wooden eggs a thing?
I tend to spend
a little some an inordinate amount of time playing two-suit spider solitaire. I noticed the cards the other day...
|Little Mister King looks angry. The Queen in turn looks worried. |
And that ne'er-do-well Jack is just turning a blind eye, as usual....
Hope everyone has a great weekend!!
