Just Can't Stop Junkin'

I've been putting a lot of creative effort on my other other blog, but I came to the realization that I just can't stop junkin' and thrifting. There is still the thrill of the hunt and the feeling of joy when you find that perfect something from your Thrift Wish List.

Last week, Dear Handyman and I went to Matilda's Mouse near San Diego. There was so much inspiration everywhere but I was especially thrilled to find two vintage bowling pins that have been on my Thrift Wish List for a long time. They came home with me and share a place of honor with my world globe collection.

This weekend we had such lovely weather so we decided to take a drive up to Ventura to explore their many thrift stores. I found a couple of items to use for future projects and lots of inspiration. The best part was the beautiful drive along the California coast and I had never seen the San Buenaventura Mission before.
The images of the Pacific Ocean were taken near Malibu. If you look carefully in the bottom photo, on the left along the horizon line, you can see the faint outline of the Channel Islands off of the California coast.

I am hoping to continue to share my thifting adventures on this blog. If you want to share in some DIY/crafting adventures then please come Follow me at
