I hope you got a chance to read my post from yesterday.
If you didn't...I just returned from a whirlwind tour of The Florida gulf coast-all the way south to Sanibel Island as well as New Orleans. I cannot wait to fill you in on all of the places we stopped along the way. Our theme in Florida was "Old Florida". No big theme parks, no chain restaurants. We had a blast!!! I hope you will read yesterday's post if you missed it....and I hope you will join me in the days to come on our Bloggeritaville roadtrip!
I didn't have to much time to thrift, however I do want to give props to Big Daddy for allowing me a quick trip to the cleanest, most well organized, downright fabulous Goodwill store in Venice, Florida. When Big Daddy is waiting in the car, I get nervous because I know I am on borrowed time. I didn't come home with anything from there, although Sister Sledge found her some t shirts. My big thrifty find on my trip was the ones provided by the good Lord above, in the way of cheap souvenirs....seashells from Sanibel. And you know how I love seashells in vases in my home.
Take a look...
Now that counts for thrifty, right? Free vacation souvenir!
A bit of useless information: A souvenir (from French, for a rememberance or memory), memento, keepsake or token of rememberance] is an object a person acquires for the memories the owner associates with it. The term souvenir brings to mind the mass-produced kitch that is the main commodity of souvenir and gift shops in many tourist traps around the world. But a souvenir can be any object that can be collected or purchased and transported home by the traveler. The object itself has no real significance other than the psychological connection the possessor has with the object as a symbol of past experience. Without the owner's input, the object's meaning is invisible and cannot be articulated.
And as for the teaser from yesterday....I promise....you bring your "tail" back here tomorrow and we'll have some fun!
This Thursday I am joining in Tablescape Thursday , hosted by Between Naps on the Porch. With all the running we did, most of our dining, as mentioned, was in local dives. However, we did manage to have a beach picnic or two along the way. Cuban sandwiches, baked chips, fresh fruit and cold drinks. Life is good.
