I actually do have a couple of blog topics to post on here- but lets shelf those for now. I want to show you the great thrift store finds I scored in Dayton.
I'm reasonably sure that circle mirror above originally came from Hobby Lobby. Its about 12" across and looks lovely in my room.
Then I also got some unique things for around the house. First up- my favorite find from this trip, a vanity chair. The whole chair is about 30" tall and the best part- $4.99! My plan is to use it as a background for various purse photos. I mean, I can't place everything on the maroon fence in my backyard, right? I also found this great glass bowl. The bowl is so heavy. I love the shape, so now, it too, lives in my house.
I also found a few "supplies" type items while thriftin. I found a set of dinner napkins that I plan to make into purses. Recycling like a wild woman. :) I also found two great little brooches, for another project brewing in my crazy brain. And if those retro napkins and pins weren't enough- I also now have a thread cone sorter for only $3. Sure, it only holds 12 cones and I own about 3 times that many, but its a start.
Today, I plan on sewing, sewing, sewing. I've got much to do before the birthday marathon month of July here at my house. Here's hoping I can get it done!
