OK, so I have huge love for the blog Young House Love. I can't quite explain why--I'm not personally into home decor, particularly, though I wish I were. But I love their aesthetic and I really enjoy the quality of their blog posts. That said, it fosters a very deep sense of inadequacy in me.
Step #1. Go to a thrift shop with - just as the chorus of the song says - "$20 in your pocket" and take a picture.
Step #2. Spend that $20 any way you'd like and photograph your spoils.
Step #3. Find one item (or more) referenced in the song and snap a pic.
So, of course, I only managed to do #2. I forgot to get cash, so no picture of me holding my $20 bill at the store. I did take a picture of the sign, though, so I get some credit, right?
I have a general list of stuff I am looking for at the thrift store in my head all the time, but some trips, I am also after specific things. This time, though, I went with the idea that I could buy anything that appealed, so long as it didn't come to more than $20. And I did it!
So what did I get?
For $3.93, an addition to my wooden animal collection! I'm honestly not 100% sure what it is--a porpoise, maybe?
