Thrift store finds
I'm trying to downsize, and cut back on buying. I love buying and re-selling kitschy stuff, and have had a long and enjoyable hobby doing that...but, with my full time job and no plans to revert to part time again soon, something had to give! I've tried very hard this summer to resist the temptation of flea markets, antique shows, and thrift shops. But every once in a while, I'll treat myself -- and I did that Saturday!
While I'm at it, I'll show you what I bought at the last garage sale I went to:
Again, not too much but each piece carefully chosen: that great divided wooden box, old banister spindles, a handmade rag flower post, and a beautiful Shabby Chic by Rachel Ashwell fabric box in great condition. That's all going in my craft room!
