Join me as I renovate my 1881 farmhouse with much creativity and very little budget. (Often with humorous results). Oh and there may be random ramblings posted from time to time. It helps quiet the voices in my head. Well, that and the prescription the Dr. gave me...
I'm telling you the thrifting gods have forsaken me! I am having a terrible time finding stuff. And not to mention the last few times I have gone thrifting the customer service was HORRIBLE (as in downright rude)! I can't wait for yard-selling season. Well that and I am scouring neighboring counties for new thrifting spots.
I spend a little time at Half Price Books and more money than I wanted but I am very happy with my purchases!
Yes I am old school--I still play vinyl. I have a DVD player and a MP3 but I really love LP's. And $1.99 for Foghat? These young kids don't get it...And yes I feel old sometimes when I am rifling through the piles of albums. All of these albums may have a little wear and tear on the jackets but the LP's are in pristine condition.
A funky little monkey-pod wood tray
Look at the size of this awesome basket (ignore the mess in the background). This is the perfect size for the lap blanket and my snuggie. Yes-I totally admit it--I broke down and bought a snuggie (on clearance for $7.50 and it has puppies on it). Me=Loser
Enamel on iron chicken roaster. No scratches, dents or dings. Just a smudge on the outside which came right off after being washed.
And matching Enamel on iron bean pot
Well that's all I got! What about you? Any thrifty treasure you want to brag about?
