Have you ever gone thrifting with a friend?
It’s fun, isn’t it?
Have you ever gone thrifting with a friend
that lives across the country from you???
I did and I didn’t even know it was happening!
Well, let me explain.
First of all, let me introduce you to my friend, Linda! Her blog is A La Carte. Perhaps you follow her, too! If not, you should! We got to meet face-to-face about a year ago when Mr. B2V and I were travelling through the
area. Here’s a picture of our meeting. Atlanta

We’ve stayed in touch and find that we often thrift/treasure-hunt for the same things. A few days ago, Linda posted about a cute orphan pepper shaker that she had found at a thrift store. You can read her post here if you like.
That cute pepper shaker looked very familiar. I remembered that I had bought a set like it several months earlier. When I got the set home, I noticed that the pepper shaker was cracked and I threw it away leaving me with an orphan salt shaker.

When Linda posted her little pepper shaker, I found my matching salt shaker and commented on her post that either I needed to give up my salt to her or she should give up her pepper to me. I think everyone that read her post and the comments got a good laugh about our dilemma. Well, it turns out that Linda is going to give up her pepper shaker to me because she likes to find and rescue orphans and now her pepper is no longer an orphan!!!
To thank Linda for her generosity, I found an orphan shaker that I think will perfectly take the place of the one she gave up. I was thrifting only a few days later and found this precious little yellow bird shaker. I knew Linda would provide the perfect home for this little cutie because she loves birds.
So Linda, check your mail in the next few days because this little birdie is flying to
to be with you. Atlanta
Look at that sweet face!!!
Now I just hope Linda doesn't already have the matching shaker!!!!
Have you ever thrifted "across the miles"???
