Stuff.

I've got a few new, exciting things lurking around the house just waiting to be blogged about, but here's a quickie!

We picked up a new LACK bookshelf from Ikea last week and it just fits on this little piece of wall behind the bedroom door, right now it's pretty much empty & it's going to hold some of my exciting items soon! I just got to find the time & what box they lurk in. Can't wait to finish it!


Already got something snazzy for the shelf - these two vintage aqua metal bookends from Goodwill for $3.03/pair, made in Japan & by CARL theyhttp://thethriftygroove.blogspot.com/2011/11/thrifty-things-friday-33.html remind me much of the ones we had in our grade school library, except those were puke green.


+ calculator watch
- it's a knock off
- it's from Dollarama
+ it was cheaper at the thrift store


I've wanted a calculator watch for quite some time, finally have one, but not the one I want. Today at Value Village I spotted this Kenko calculator watch for 99cents, knowing it was a cheap knockoff when I bought it & knew it wasn't what I wanted & knew it was probably never see the light of day, I bought it anyways as it's probably the closest thing I'll get to a calculator watch anytime soon. Didn't expect it to be from Dollarama, but on the plus side, I got it at a cheaper price!

Later days.
