LIFE LOOKS LIKE...DARN GOOD THRIFTING.
i thought i'd start a little series about what we do and why and how we do it. so here it is.
it's only fitting to start with my favorite thing...thrifting. i could thrift all day, everyday and mister jones will concur. there's just something about those dreamy vintage finds. it's like discovering a lost treasure. if only we knew who owned it before, what was their story, where has it been...dreamy i tell you. my love for all things vintage and old fashioned is definitely my number one motivator when i thrift. however, less impact on the environment, less expense and supporting companies that give to people in need are also major contributing factors. we're trying to set an example for our kids of how not to get caught up in the american consumerist lifestyle. rather, we're trying to focus on a lifestyle of simplicity and learning to appreciate the contentment and peace found there.
this doesn't mean we don't buy anything new, we certainly do so when it's necessary. although i've never walked into a shopping mall and felt my heart skip a beat like it did when i spotted that teensy baseball embroidered vintage shirt for baby boy. the thrill of thrifting. good for the soul.
