a little desk

One of my favorite things about recently moving is that I have a reason to shop for furniture to fill the empty spaces here. And where we live, everywhere you look there is a Goodwill, thrift store, resale shop, upcycling, antiques, shabby chic boutiques... it's awesome.

We stopped in Goodwill yesterday to look for winter coats for the boys and Ivy actually spotted this little desk for $5 and rocker for $8!

Something Ivy said to me yesterday that I want to remember for-ever: "It makes me so so happy when you read me stories."

Linking up with Small Style again, I just love this Baby Nay dress I bought at Zulily  It's so soft and warm, I hope to find more like it. Leggings & Emu boots are from Zulily, too.

  4. I am so jealous of all of your thrift shops. My brother in law and his family live in Ohio and, from what they've said, the prices are way better than here in California. Ivy has a great eye- I LOVE that desk and rocking chair and her sweet dress!

  5. I am so in love with that desk and rocker. If those were mine that I had donated, I would be beyond thrilled that a little girl was loving on them like Ivy is.
    So sweet!

  16. Oooooh so cute! Thrifting is one of my most favorite and relaxing pass times. Of course when I have time to go alone :) Though you're little one seemed to find quite the deal! Thanks for the inspiration!

  20. I so wish I had read chapter books to all of my kids. We did the picture books at bedtime, but once they learned to read on their own, I kind of let the reading aloud to them go. Not with Jayce, though. He's in first grade this year and reading like a little champ, but still we are plugging along through chapter books. I LOVE that time with him and I really think it's a big part of his advanced reading skills.

    PS. The desk and rocker? Score!
