Thanks for stopping by!!

I have found so much inspiration that I have started sharing my own addiction of tablescaping. Please feel free to join me as I enter my journey and share my passion for decorating with all my lovely little "treasures".

I decorate my home with vintage, thrift store, yard sale and hand me down items. I shop ebay with a vengance for dinnerware and glassware, the postal service must adore me!

I am very casual, but a bit fussy when it comes down to details. I have spent two thirds of my life in the south, but the southerners say my "nothern side" still comes out! I am guessing this is not such a good thing....and visa versa when I am around my northern relatives, "give me a break"!

Join me any way.......I hope we can be blogging buddies no matter where we all live :)

Tuesday thrifting in our home town!

Well in case you didn't know....Tuesday is thrift store day for me!!  The  thrift stores mostly close down around here on Mondays and open up on Tuesdays with all kinds of new little goodies.

Today  Anika , Bunny and I (my friend Jennifer, how do you like your new knick name Jen?) hit all the shops in town!  Well, all the stores we had time for any way.  I introduced her to all my "peeps".  These are all the folks who already know I am addicted to the thrift stores. 

Although Donna does not have a thrift store, I had to bring Bunny in to see here stuff!  Donna owns a wonderful gift shop in our town called "The Lion's Crest".  She has some of the neatest stuff.  I go there every time I need something new and unique for a tablesacpe, if I need a special gift or if I just need a special colored candle...I know she will have it!
Look what else I found there!  I thought a little somebody from "Kissed by a Frog" might find this cute!  Seems all your blogs are starting to be stuck in my little brain. 
These are a couple of Barbara's kids over at Robins thrift store.
Her store is packed to the rafters.  She has moved because she just has so much stuff!  I always find treasure here.....mostly curtains.  My daughter adores going here because she takes prom dresses on consignment and, well she loves to go and drool.
I only took a picture of her son's arm because he is to big and mean looking and he might scare ya'll. 

Okay, If you wanna meet some wonderful, sweet, incredible people.....head to Charity Treasures!!  These three make your trip to this thrift shop like meeting old friends.
  Now I can tell you Lilly's name (she's on the left) because she is the sweetest of the bunch.  I have met some great married couples in my life and this is yet another one!  You can tell they are still in love after years and years of marriage and I find that soooo refreshing.  Now they will have to remind me of the names of course and I know they are family, but please remind me if this is your daughter?  I know you threatened to fire her.....yes, I do believe you would fire one of your own (just kidding) They run the CLEANEST thrift store in town!  All the clothes are spot free, the merchadise is orderly and one heck of a friendly staff...what more do you need!!
My two favorite partners in crime, Anika and Bunny!
Opportunity House,
our local thrift store supports or local homeless shelter.

Newest thrift store in town has buy one get one free on Thursdays!!
Guess where I am on Thursdays?

The fine ladies are at our local "Habitat for Humanity" They don't seem to mind (too much) wrapping it all so nice for us, making sure we have nice sturdy boxes and giving us a nice little deal ;) if we buy a ton of stuff.
These are not the two ladies....(umm I had to take that pic down )sniff sniff and replace it with this one!

I love knowing that our money goes to our local folk who are in need of decent housing.  They are always so cheerful.  Some places in town can be a little grumpy...ummm I don't want to spend my money with grumpy people !
This is the only thing I bought today that I am willing to "show of".
Picked up at Robins thrift shop for $1.00 is a Croscill fingertip tassle embelished towel.  I have looked for something for this shelf for weeks and today.......there it sat! 
Okay you will have to keep looking for tablescapes to see what other wonderful little treasures I found today!

Oh it was so much fun~but boy am I tired.  Anika had to run 3 miles afterwards (bless her heart) and then we hit Dairy Queen for dinner.
It's 11:25 and it's time to call it a day.
Good night everyone

Goodnight Bunny!
