Junkin’ Monday is a chance to show off cool thrift store or garage sale finds. I get so many cool ideas from creative ladies out there in blogland, making things much cuter than you can find in stores, and at such a low price. It feels so wonderful to find cool things cheap, and to make old things look cool.
I do have to say that my dear sweet hubby, while he’s a wonderful man, hates old stuff. He Hates. Old. Stuff. So I try to restrain myself from going vintage shopping or over to the Goodwill too much. But sweetie. Don’t be hatin’.
This past week I went to Goodwill looking for a trench coat for my daughter’s spy costume. I ‘spied’ this AWESOME vintage globe. It’s about 3 1/2 feet high and has a cool turquoise color that didn’t come across too well in my picture. I knew it would look great in our family room. Alas, hubby kindly suggested it would be a neat thing to have in my craft studio. So there you go.
I always have to look through the frames, because I have paintings and frames are so expensive. A couple weeks ago I found this gorgeous chippy gold mirror over there for nine bucks. The thing is heavy. It too will look great in my studio. And if you read Somerset’s Belle Armoire you know why I hunted out a few vintage slips. I am dying to dye them!
Drop me a comment so Sweetie knows I’m not the only one in the world who likes these things.
