Thrifting and Single Momness

The husband left for a conference in Vegas last night. Since he's gone till Thursday I'm planning on some indoor/outdoor picnics depending on the weather, hopefully a lot of walks and a few movies when things get desperate. :)

I was able to get a little thrifting done over the weekend and scored two wonderful things I've been searching for. I found this great vintage picnic basket and I'm planning on using it to store all our outside dishes on our back patio so I don't have to haul dishes back and forth while eating outside. Since we eat outside a lot in the summer this will be perfect. Now I just need to find the perfect melamine dishes to go in it. I'm also planning on lining it with some oilcloth I just purchased. I can't wait to get started and see how it turns out. On a side note you may notice the pencil tree in the background waiting to be painted. A project my artistic husband started last summer that is in desperate need of finishing. Hopefully, I'll be able to post photos of the finished project by the end of the summer (cross my fingers).
And this amazing cup holder for the outside patio. So cool and retro and now in desperate need of some retro glasses. I love searching for things. That's half the fun!

I also found a great blue portable typewriter for my shop. If I didn't already have a typewriter it'd be mine. I hope you all have/had a great Monday.
