Thankfully Thrifted Thursday-Martini Glasses

My roommate and I have started a tradition, Martini Monday!

On our first night we didn’t actually have martini glasses and it really just wasn’t all that charming.

So what do two single girls do who have no martini glasses? They go thrifting!

We decided we didn’t want matching ones, there isn’t really anything in our apartment that matches and we like it that way.

These are the glasses that we found.


It’s the Eiffel Tower! It’s just tacky enough and we love it!


It has just a touch of blue, which I love!

So there you have it, we found ourselves some extra classy martini glasses! Love!

Now for what I’m thankful for this week ūüôā

I am thankful for simple, calm moments.

I am thankful for friends who have a heart to serve.

I am thankful for a wonderful house that I love to come home to.

I am thankful for a chance to express my creativity.

I am thankful for the ridiculousness of life (like my roommate and I doing the same scared dance when we realized the bat still lives on our deck).




Thankfully Thrifted Thursday-Bar Cart

So for the past couple of weeks I’ve been talking about what I’m thankful for each week. ¬†This week I would like to extend this post, so there will be two features!

First I’ll show you one of my favorite,¬†recently¬†thrifted pieces and then I’ll give a brief list of things that I am thankful for this week.

Sound fun? ¬†That’s what I thought! ¬†Can I just say that I’m always thankful for thrift stores? ¬†They are for sure my favorite! ¬†I hardly ever go to “real” stores anymore ūüôā ¬†It’s so great!

I found this bar cart (which I am SO¬†unhealthily¬†in love with) at an ARC here in Denver. ¬†It wasn’t a planned visit to the store, my friend and I had some time to kill at when my eyes caught this amazing piece I knew I had to buy it! ¬†And then I saw the price tag of only $25 and it was¬†practically¬†in my car!

It fits so perfectly on this wall in my apartment that’s right by the door, so it¬†occasionally doubles as a key drop which is perfect!

It has a¬†functional¬†burner (we’re not sure what exactly we’re going to use it for, Hot Toddies? Gluewein? we’ll figure it out I’m sure). ¬†I think it’s totally awesomely random!

The bottom is perfect for for alcohols, glasses, etc.  The top is great for various other accessories.  We have some tins that have matches, cards, tea, etc in them.

Overall this is one of the best thrift finds ever! ¬†If you find one while you’re out and about you should most definitely pick it up! ¬†You will not regret it!.

So now you’re wondering what I’m thankful for, yeah (that is of course besides my bar cart :)). ¬†Here’s this week’s list.

I am thankful for the ability to be at camp taking care of amazing kids.

I am thankful for a community that supports me in my efforts to “change the world” (and of course I support them as well).

I am thankful for the summer, for the fun times that have come out of it.

I am thankful for the roof over my head.

I am thankful for the joy in my life.

Here’s this weeks list.

I am thankful that I have been blessed with such a wonderful community.

I am thankful for the moments, even the small ones, that remind me how lovely life is.
