An Adventure in Fredericksburg!

I am skipping Saturday's finds, just for today, so that I can tell you about yesterday. 'Cause honestly, yesterday was more exciting!

First, what I wore, and the new blooms on the tree outside of our apartment:

Sunglasses, Love of Jesus; Striped Shirt, Goodwill; Big Mustard, Good Samaritan; Necklace, Good Samaritan; Jeans, Goodwill; Buckle Wedges, Love of Jesus; Stone Mountain Bag, Goodwill Outlet

A recap of the day:

I decided to check out an estate sale on my way into Fredericksburg, and I found a couple of neat little things there, including a lion bank for a dollar :) Then, I met up with Lindsey and we walked around downtown Fredericksburg and got sandwiches for lunch.

We didn't go to the thrift shop that we were planning on meeting at, since it is now apparently closed on Sundays, but we did check out some antique shops. ,They weren't too promising, though. Just a bunch of fancy, expensive stuff that you feel like you shouldn't even touch! But it was great just walking around and catching up :)

We did end up going to a Goodwill on the way out of town, where Lindsey found some great new Target dishes and I got the hubby a funny present, some little things, and a picnic basket.

It was a great day, and it was so much fun to catch up with an old friend!

Here are some of my finds:

Picnic Basket, Goodwill ($4); Tiny Owl Pillow, Goodwill ($0.50); Watermelon Coasters, Goodwill ($0.50); Estate Sale Finds, ($4- and yes, the metal bucket is for the hubby!)

Whew! This is the longest post I've done in awhile, but it was such a fun and relaxing day that I had to share :) I hope you all have a great start to your week!



  1. Amanda, sounds like you had a fun day. Love the Lion bank, very cute!!

  2. Thanks, Linda! Yeah, I really like the lion bank too! I was trying to explain to the hubby what it was..."like a piggy bank, but a lion!"

  3. LOVE big mustard! Fantastic color on you :) And I'm really diggin' the watermelon coasters and picnic basket. I'm such a sucker for anything straw. Sounds like you had a great time!!
