Frugal Fun, Thrfity Finds, Vintage Pretties


Bunco!
Great fun!
Not too much money!

This is a pic of my Daughter and I at a Mom/ Daughter Bunco party!
(Can you see us, front row center?)

Is that a great idea or what?
$6.00 to play.
As I recall, Angie won $5.00, and I won $15.00,
and we both had an evening full of laughter,
junk food, and meeting new friends.
Talk about a win, win, win evening!

Below is my thrifty and vintage finds tonight.

Finally got out of the house after being sick a week.
Met the kids for 99 cent yogurt night,
then over to the thrift stores.


Found 3 pairs of vintage gloves, 1/2 price!!!
(were $2.99 a pair)





And found a hole bin of these little photo albums.
Pink leather.
about 3x4"
Holds 2 photos.
And guess who is turning these .25 cent cuties
into something special for Valentines Day. =0)


Thrifty Thursday

I love those vintage gloves. I bought a couple pairs from a thrift store a few weeks back. Don't know what I'm going to do with them but they were too much fun to pass up.
Happy New Year.

I am amazed at how white those vintage gloves still are!

When I was a child, we still wore white gloves on Sunday - - - once mine came out of the box, they were NEVER that white again.

Barbara Jean,
Love the gloves! I haven't played Bunco in forever. It is a blast. We used to have a ladies group, then everyone moved & had kids.
Have a safe, happy new year! Lisa

Great treasures you've been finding. I've been sitting here enjoying all of the ones in your slide show.
Sounds like your party was a lot of fun - I had a friend that use to play that with a group of women.

Divine gloves, I sort of miss the elegance of always wearing gloves-& besides they kept our hands clean!
