The Word Finder and Thesaurus in their tape-mended box. We appropriated it from the bookshelves a long time ago when Genevieve decided she wasn't going to sit in the high chair any longer and we hadn't bought a huge plastic contraption. We looked around for the nearest thing to a telephone book and, lo, it is perfect.
If I ever found a cute vintage booster for cheap, I would put the books back on the shelf.
I am a wife and mother of two. I am a stay-at-home mom, part time cookbook editor, a Mennonite, and a city dweller. I like to make things (see the blog categories below). This blog is a record of what I make and the ways I try to be thrifty. Welcome!
"Thrift is the really romantic thing; economy is more romantic than extravagance...thrift is poetic because it is creative; waste is unpoetic because it is waste...if a man could undertake to make use of all the things in his dustbin, he would be a broader genius than Shakespeare."
