Well, my birthday is next January...I'll be 40...are there 40 thrift stores you can take me to? Because I am seriously envying your finds. That crazy quilt is killing me. Beautiful!


what a cool was to spend a birthday!

I went into Salvation Army today and only the fact it still didn't have a price tag kept me from getting one of those huge bridal gowns... and it's not even my birthday!


What a fabulous haul!


Oh. My. God.


You gals really know how to shop! That is the ideal way to stock up on fabulous clothing and fabrics to be reclaimed and upcycled.


omg yes, what amazing finds indeed ! This HAS to become an annual event ! And yay for the discounts you got for T's bday ! even better !
wishing you a lovely day today


WOW, AMAZING! my pulse is racing! so much good stuff! so much Liberty stuff!! happy birthday indeed.


This type of birthday celebration reminds me of something my mom and younger sister would do! What a great day. Thanks for showing us your loot.


What a clever plan! Margaret, you should write some sort of article about it for some of the up to date magazines that are into refashioning and upcycling!

Makes me wish I had a daughter or a neice that wasn't in another country.

And there was a sale on! You both must have had an unbelievably fun day.


Wow, so many treasures! I'll have to haunt these stores next time I'm in Toronto. So much Liberty!

Again, happy birthday to Tamara.


you girls have some serious thrifting stamina! If we had 11 thrift stores near us we would be in big trouble. Happy birthday to Tamara.

Coach Bags Outlet

Today, married men have the benefit of a partner with stronger earning power compared with 1970, when fewer married women were in the labor force. Both men and women are much more likely to be college educated today compared with 1970, but women now comprise nearly 54% of college graduates, in contrast to just 36% in 1970. This education gap means that a growing number of marriages includes a wife who has more education than her husband, and in some cases a higher income, as the graph below details. While the percentage of wives who earn more than husbands has grown significantlyads, keep in mind that the vast majority or women in 2007 did not earn more than their husbands.


I don't think highly of Coach Bags, what about you?
