Houz thrifty finds

Hello all,

One thing you should know about me is that I can find a bargain.

 Lately, my weekends have been hanging out at the thrift stores.   It's called a bargain hop shopping spree.  That makes me happy!

Was it worth it? 

Let's  find out......

Let's begin here .....
 a rose from me to me. 
I think I deserve to be pampered.

Or let's start here 
where a dream comes true.
  I have been searching for this little teapot.
Yes, I do love it.

Let's begin here

with my vintage flatware collection,
Piece by piece,
  it's been a treasure hunt and I love
 the detailed and the mismatch.

Are you one that love candles, regardless 
of the size or color.
I do, and don't leave out the candlesticks.

Lovely colors for the Fall, 
Thanksgiving and even Christmas d├ęcor. 


With the cold winter days ahead,
 I invested in the right thing,
a Ralph Lauren blanket to keep me warm.

Now, I am second guessing my self,
I should have shown the blanket first. 
 Just beautiful, right?

Do you keep a throw nearby 
during the winter?




I will be busy for a few days getting 
my finds in top shape.

So glad you stopped by to check out my finds.
 I have no regrets.
  It was worth every shopping moment.

Happy  early fall and enjoy the week.

My Workspace

Hello Houz friends, 

Are you ready to see my workspace?

I get so excited when Chip and Joanna Gaines (HGTV Fixer Upper) ask their clients:  Are you ready to see your fixer upper?  

There are so many reason I'm sharing my work space.  There are so many new thrifty finds, repurposed items,  and the switching of items  making it my space.

I'm drawn to shades of grey, white, pop and pops of color.  I love color.

When you enter my home, this is one of the spaces that will greet you.

The view

I love this beautiful view.

The magazine collection

I have sooo much fun flipping thru 
these old magazines, comparing
 yesterday's designs  to today's  designs.

OOO, the thrifty finds...

The pops of color

Bold pattern makes me happy.

The Thrift store finds
Gorgeous  candlesticks

Instead of a candle on the candlestick,
I chose this decorative piece.

  Love this lamp base. 
 A thrift store find. 

The Switch

The candle isn't a thrifty find. 
It's the only thing found in 
my office with a full price tag.

I adore an organized
 and functional work area.

Happy to share my 
workspace with you.

Thanks for the visit and enjoy your day.
