What. A. Whirlwind. The last ten days have been madness! Andrew, Mac, and I headed to Destin for a (very quick) pre-move beach trip. We spent time with Andrew's parents, celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary at Marina Café with an amazing meal and view, loved on the dads for Father's Day, and got some sand between our toes. While it … Continue reading Update: We are moved!
"Why do you thrift?","What made you start thrifting?", and "Do you thrift everything?... I get these three specific questions a lot, so I thought I'd give you guys some formal answers! Also, almost everything you see in the pictures below is thrifted. Let's get started... Why did I start thrifting? Out of necessity! I love to shop and … Continue reading Thrift Q & A
I love the South. (See that capital letter S?) However, fashion here is a little more rigid than a lot of places in the country. It's sometimes hard to get away from skinny jeans and Michael Kors purses (Those are not terrible things. Everyone, breathe.) I wanted to show you how much fun it can be to play with the thrift store clothing that scares everyone away! From "Granny … Continue reading From Granny to Great!
The last week or so has been a bust when it comes to thrifting furniture. So I gathered up my dashed hopes and moved on to different stuff - accessories! Thrift stores are chock full of unique accessories when you can sift through the Hello Kitty wallets and cheap watches. Check out some of my … Continue reading Wishin’, Hopin’, & Thriftin’ Accessories.
A little less talk and a lot more action, people. It's what this girl needed. Here is a recap of my most recent trip into Providence Thrift and a quick DIY with one of my finds! It took a lot (and I mean A LOT) of restraint not to buy this big ole chunky necklace. … Continue reading Thrift Stop & a DIY!
The home inspection is complete (and went relatively well!!). We are now in the process of negotiating those details, and even closer to an actual move. So, of course, my mind immediately runs 1,000 mph figuring out when I get to pick up my first paint brush/demolish something. The dining room of this new house … Continue reading Feed Me.
Okay. I caved. I bought furniture sans deed or key. But, when you see these end tables, you will (hopefully) understand. In case you don't see the potential (for $9.99/ea!!!), let me help you: A little elbow grease (ie: sand, stain, and paint) will have these tables looking like Pottery Barn material in no time … Continue reading Hall of Fame and Shame.
What a week. And it's only Hump Day! Before we moved to the rental we are in now, we lived over in a sweet little neighborhood called Belvoir. One of the best things about being on that side of town was: The Thrift Store is located on Brainerd Road, and it is a gold mine because … Continue reading New Finds & New Mercies.
Oversized, reversible, printed, thrifted vest. Sounds like a nightmare, right? When I first pulled it (and the paired polyester, elastic-waist, black pants) off the rack at Goodwill a few years ago, guess where my mind went? That's right. Sassy, sarcastic, perpetually vested Dorothy Zbornak from the Golden Girls. I giggled at the mental picture and tossed in my cart because (repeat after … Continue reading Workhorse.
I come by my love for decorating honestly. My sweet mom could make two chopsticks and a plastic Easter basket look like something from Southern Living's front cover. My husband and I are in the contract/inspection stages of buying our new home in Nashville, and I will soon have plenty of opportunity to stretch my decorating legs. We are currently in the three … Continue reading Small Pieces of a Big Plan.
