thrifty

i am in the process of a birthday bash post but in the meantime.. i found some great thrift finds last week at MCC. the chairs (there were two) have already been painted a lovely glossy white and look amazing with my egg chairs (also a find at mcc). the vintage quilt with flowers is even lovlier in person and although there is no baby on the way or in the works it was too lovely to pass up. the yellow blanket is crocheted with obvious love in my favorite color. dreamy. if i could live near amazing thrift/vintage stores i would be so happy. do you like to thrift?

I saw Dave masking up the chairs for the paint job. I couldn't see potential like you can, but when they were drying outside I was flabbergasted at how beautiful they looked! Seriously! But yeah, I like to thrift shop but don't find very many good finds. Perhaps because the possibilities are lost on me... but if that's the case then I guess it's meant not for me but for someone else :)

I've been all over thrifting lately. Have you checked out that place in the city yet?! I got some amazing things there over the weekend.

Oh - and whenever you're in GF next, let me know and I'll tell you where there's another great antique store. And it's cheap!
