Well, yesterday was my birthday. Because of a Dr. appointment in a neighboring city, I was able to do one of my favorite things. Go thrifting. I especially enjoy going to places like The
Women's Hope Shop. This supports the unborn children and families who are in crisis. And animal shelter stores. I then know that my dollar goes twice as far. It not only goes to benefit those who need
a little extra loving support but I am blessed with a bargain or two!
Here is the spread of treasures that I was able to find. So much to look at and I just loved the mix of colors for the photo. I must say I felt so blessed! I don't know how how many times I have thought," Oh, I would like to have this or that." and in just a little while, I am able to find it.
Three handsome lamps. And the smallest one uses a two-way bulb. So sweet.
Ruffly, Angelic-white pillows
Details. So pretty.
Aren't the cracks charming.
The base is plaster. I'm not overly fond of glossy-
white but I can fix that. I am just learning about paint and techniques so I
don't have an exact plan. But there is a vision in my mind to soften the color,
and darken some edges.
The taupe cloth that you see is actually......
a woolen shawl made in India!
The color caught my eye. It's one of my favorites.
It layers so lovely and softly with creams and whites.
Because it's such a perfect weight, it can also be worn as a scarf.
Beaded jewelry .... vintage clothing
My husband and I share in this journey which makes it a double-blessing.
I saw this.
Picked it up and said,"Oh, I want this."
He asked what it was. I didn't know. (I'd like to find out.)
But isn't it unique?
And I thought it "Old World" looking.
Strong. Bold. Enduring.
I'm looking forward to finding more treasures. Useful to our home and also
to sell. There's so much inspiration out there.
I have made a beautiful new blogger friend and hers is one of my favorite blogs.
It's called A Gathering Place.
Her blog is gorgeous and her work is quite lovely.
It's so wonderful when people share their gifts and talents.
