A Dollars Worth of Happy

Found another extremely cute table and chairs for a dollar. Still taped nicely into their original box.

Now I have a set in yellow AND a set in red.

Nothing fancy or particularly special about them, but I get such a thrill when I find stuff like this.

Some people buy shoes. Or trendy clothes. I would not know trendy if it slapped me in the face.

And I bought it without THGGM along to say, "But what's it for?"

Although, now that I think about it, "But what's it for?" is easier to deal with than "But where are you going to put it?" and both are better than "So, you're thinking we won't need food this month?".

Thankfully, I have a sister who loaded me up with zuccini and summer squash so we shall eat like kings and queens.

Depending on the scale, I think that set belongs in one of my doll houses! Great "find". And you're SO right about all the reasons for thrift store shopping!

Gotta love that zucchini, too! I made a great layered casserole - sauteed sliced zucchini, browned hamburger, green pepper & onion, petit diced tomatoes...another layer of same topped with croutons and generous dose of cheese (of course). Bake at 350 for about 35 minutes. Yum!
