Thrifting Frenzy


The holiday season has not slowed down my thrifting.  I've been as lucky as ever.

My garage, however, needs a break.

After cleaning the special room and adding to my booth stash, I could stand to have an auction.

But never mind that. 

Let's talk about what goodies I added to the garage this week........


I found the lamp and lampshade at different stores.  They don't necessarily go together.

But they don't necessarily not go together.

They are both terribly cute.

Fun canisters.  Already in the booth.

A vintage floral.  I could not resist the red, um, poppies?  And the string of beads strung along the base of the vase.

*   *   *   *


And lastly, the Mustang got its first reeeaaal good workout when I decided to bring these home.  I was super happy that the back seats fold down so easily!

Are you doubting my sanity now?

Come on.

Think statement wall.  A little spray paint.

Or have mirrors cut for them.

EEEEEEKKKK!

MIRRORS!

I think I just talked myself into keeping them.
