I went thrifting today! I went to a thrift shop I love but because of work rarely get there.
I got 2 rolls of crape paper streamers.
This is much smaller than it looks in the picture, but I am a sucker for a footed dish.
It makes everything so elegant.
assorted vintage wrapping paper
And be still my heart this tree. I have a tree made the same way that is 27 years old.
My tree is falling apart and needs to go, I have hunted and hunted for something like it but no luck or I would pay hundreds of dollars for it. For 6.00 it is wonderful and looks like it was hardly used.
When this tree is together and decorated you would never know it was a fake tree This is my tree all set up .
I know I know you are sick of Christmas.
This months country garden is a must buy. This is just one articles that interested me.
I am thinking I may find one of those wheelbarrows at the dump this year.
There are many more articles you will love,antique bee skep, living centerpieces,etc
A few months ago I joined paperbackswap.com
I thought it would be a great way to swap out some of my books.
I have gotten these in the swap but on a whole I am a bit disappointed. not much in the way for
decorating and DIY books.
And what would a post be without a dump find.
she is so sweet she was sitting on the shelf just waiting for me at the dump.
We were up early and into Boston to the Dr. David got a very good report, we go back in 2 weeks for a few tests to see just how he really is doing. I met up with my sweet friend Cathy. We had tea and a little conversation. In all I would say a perfect day. How was your day?
I am joining the thrifty groove to show off my finds.
Is this the party to whom I am speaking?
