Having this week off for Thanksgiving allowed me to make up for lost time thrifting. I also got to visit stores I don't normally frequent because the hours they keep aren't condusive to my schedule. A thrift store located in the basement of church near my house is quickly becoming a favorite of mine. Unfortunately it's only open on Tuedays for 3 hours during the day. Note to self: schedule all doctors and vet appointments on Tuesdays from here on out... The church thrift
My soon-to-be husband walked past the computer while I was uploading these pictures and he stopped mid-sentence to ask "Wait. Did you make that?" Insert dramatic sigh here. Not only did I make it, but he saw it before I took it to a client. I specifically showed it to him. And it sat in our living room for the better part of a week. I swear it's like he's only half listening half the time, and if those two halves don't align then it's like he's listening a quarter of the
I love, love, LOVE pink Christmas decorations. I don't just mean pink ornaments, I mean full-on pink Christmas decor, especially of the Shabby Chic vintage variety. My adoration of pink Christmas was my inspiration for this piece. These vintage Shiny Brites are from my Wild & Wonderful West Virginia haul . Once upon a time they were Christmas green, but over time they've taken on a softer, gentler green. The perfect complement to pink! This is one of my favorite salvaged
Woo - three down, only like 48 more to go! I love these vintage Shiny Brites for their mid-century modern appeal. I knew I wanted to group them together, but I didn't want to incorporate any other decorations because I wanted these guys to shine all on their own. So I started with one of the vases I brought home from What I Thrifted last weekend. I loved the tallest one for it's shape. I thought about filling it with a mix of vintage christmas balls, but I wanted to create
This week's haul is small but mighty. I didn't spend a lot of time out and about this weekend because I wanted to tackle some of my smaller projects. As it is, we're up to our ears in projects and we just inadvertently took on two more. And for serious, I'm putting an official ban on vintage Christmas decorations until I do something with the ones I already have. I can't resist them and it's becoming a problem! First up - Pumpkin Mammoth! Love the picture, hate the frame.
The perfect yard sale haul for a perfect Fall day! I couldn't be more excited about this weekend's finds so let's show 'em off! I've acquired quite the collection of empty frames. I can't helpt it. I love them. Check out this detail - would you have been able to pass it up? I've got big plans for my frames, I swear. And here's one more to add to the collection. More vintage Christmas balls! Sometimes when it rains it pours and that seems to be the case lately with my v
A day trip to West Virginia brought home an unexpected vintage haul that makes my heart sing. I adore this vintage chenille bedspread. While it's not in pristine condition (the stuff is vintage after all), I have some ideas on how to repurpose it. I'm a sucker for just about anything with a dog. The frame needs a little love, but how fun is this print?! I love the colors in this vintage table cloth. Again, not in pristine condition, but I have some ideas on how to give thi
