{Get Thrifty} Thursday 08.25.16

We checked out a new thrifting spot the other night.  It's called Savers and it's huge. 
The prices seemed a little higher but we still managed to score a few deals.   I found three tops that I love. We also got a mirrored tray for Miss High School and I added to my wide mouth Mason jar collection. The larger ones are great for salad in a jar storage.
Here's some close up detail on two of the shirts.  The blue one was new with tags and by Lauren Conrad. The chevron sleeveless blouse is from LOFT.
 Let's keep in touch!

New Porch Rug

This was a quick switcher-roo on the front porch. 
The old rug from my Porch In Progress post was starting to show it's age (3 years!) and it was time for a new one.  I found this handsome black and white striped one at Ikea (where else?) and switched out the old blue and white one.
Easy peasy!  I love how a little rug out there grounds the two rocking chairs.
Now for a side by side comparison.  Sometimes small changes make a big impact.
 Let's keep in touch!

Warby Parker and Kill Screen Video Game Collaboration

Warby Parker reached out to me to help them share the launch of their collaboration with Kill Screen, a video gaming company.
From the press release: "On August 23(today!), Warby Parker’s first-ever—and totally free—video game will be revealed on screens at warbyparker.com/kill-screen. With the help of Highline Games, Warby Parker and Kill Screen designed a physics-based matching game that perfectly captures their shared love of design and entertainment. Its graphic elements are beautiful yet unexpected, and the gameplay hits the sweet spot of being both simple and fun."
I've tried the game and it IS both simple and fun, also calmingly addictive.  Yoga for your brain?
We've been long time fans of Warby Parker and have ordered four pairs of glasses from them over the years.  The website makes ordering glasses online so easy and their customer service has always been top notch.   They have so many current and on trend eyeglass styles to choose from.   I also love that for every pair of glasses you buy, the company donates a pair to someone in need.
"The limited-edition glasses, Burke in Glacier Grey (a best-selling frame reimagined in a new hue), are crafted from premium cellulose acetate and equipped with lenses that have anti-scratch and anti-reflective coatings—which conveniently reduce the glare from screens. (Score!) Inside the frame’s temple is an embossed Kill Screen logo in their signature red. Also included in the bundle is a custom lens pouch with artwork featuring the Kill Screen logo cleverly deconstructed into minimalist lines and shapes."
What do you think of this new color? Are you going to go check out the new video game?
 Let's keep in touch!

{Random} What I've Been Up To-Part 2

Happy Friday!  I'm getting sad because summer is almost over but also excited about the new school year and cooler temps (hopefully!).   Here's the second part of my recap of what I've been up to as the summer fritters away. To see part 1, click here.
 Getting some time in the hot tub when it's not too hot out.
 Enjoying a book and some morning coffee on the deck.
 

Trying a new place for brunch.  It's called Turning Point.  I had to snap a pic of the decor. I love the pale blue wales with the dark wood and all the fresh white trim. It looks beachy to me! This was the salad I had.  It had spinach, quinoa, pecans, strawberries, blueberries and pineapple.
 

Out for an evening walk in our neighborhood, we heard before we saw these little guys.
 I tagged along to "art camp" at G's house with her nephews and ended up making my own Matisse inspired piece (upper right corner). Miss High School did the rest.
 Still loving my overnight oats for breakfast.
 Love summer trips to the library.
 We had my niece and I gave her change for the wishing well.  She politely shushed me because she was "thinking about her wishes".
 Teaching her how to play Pokemon Go.
 I saw these two little cuties on one of my walks.
 Skinny guava margarita.
 Hubby's band gig.
 Being a hippy chick.
 New wrist obsession=these bracelets.
Admiring these mid century chairs at a thrift store.
 We've been taking more trips to the mall just to escape the heat. I never mind visiting Pottery Barn.
 I needed a new band for an old Swatch watch.  The selection of watches is dizzying.
 This West Elm Bohemian Collection was making me swoon.
Checking out this wine growler at Urban Outfitters.
What have you been up to?
