Playing around with the law of attraction has been way fun! I dreamed of a plaid wool robe to wear all winter with my messy hair, slippers, and a coffee mug. I am never warm, so only wool will do. And what to my wondering eyes should appear (on a little clothing rack at a community yard sale) but a Pendleton gem that was brand new or near! And just my size! Here is a hint of what a new one costs:
If you wanna go buy one…
But I paid $6 for mine. Just sayin.
Wait! Start the music….THEN scroll…
My first attempt at a chair facelift! I got six of these at a yard sale a couple years ago. They weren’t pretty, but we needed the extra chairs for a party. Now I am changing them one at a time with all kinds of fun spray paint colors and shabby fabrics! Stay tuned for the other five.
Isn’t she LOVELY?!! 🙂
Sometimes things just keep on piling up! No, I don’t mean thrift store finds and other junk. I mean life! And with many sad things happening all at once, it is such a magical thing to walk into a Goodwill in a Goodtown. I forget sometimes that the key to great thrifting, or yard saling, or any bargain shopping for that matter, is to shop in the right neighborhood! Having a dental appointment an hour from home landed me in shopping country with a mall and a Goodwill only yards from each other. Needless to say, I went a little crazy. A lot giddy. And self-control was out the window! I haven’t felt this good in weeks! Being immersed in isles and isles of clothing where scanning for the cashmere or linen isn’t necessary because high-end fabrics abound. Here the game is to decide how many will go to the fitting room. The cart gets swamped, burying glassware and goblets with denim name brands. The fitting room won’t allow carts, so there is the added adventure of popping out to spy. Is someone shopping from my parked cart? Oh the joyous stress and mischief of it all!! Okay. Without further ado, here is my loot!
Ahh fall! Denim, sweaters and plaid! Love.And the best things in life are NOT free! A pair of perfect fit Matchstick jeans go for WAY MORE than sensible! Unless you find them at Goodwill! Oh you thought I was kidding when I said goblet? Pier One, Dollar General or Antiques…I could care less! They’re mine now!Oh my! A little festive eggnog or cocoa with a foamy frothy top perhaps? Christmas is coming!! Holy Moses! I’m losing my marbles! Here’s a sample of vintage finds: Pillow from my sis, lampshade from a Tennessee yard sale, picture frame from Salvation Army, and of course marbles marbles marbles! Okay, now I’m bushed. Time out for tea! Happy thrifting!
