I just met a wonderful gal, Tracie, who lives only a few blocks from me. She loves Shabby Chic and is incredible when it comes to painting furniture. We really hit it off and last Thursday we drove all over creation and found some great thrift shops. A few were a bit scary but I did find some great deals. You really have to dig through some unusual stuff (and I'm not talk'n about cool and hip but T-A-C-K-Y). I now I've seen where all of our crazy relatives tacky disgusting gifts go to die, LOL! Y'all, they had a stuffed armadillo. Who would put a stuffed armadillo in their house? Not only was it a stuffed armadillo but a stuffed armadillo holding a Coors Light beer can. That's when you know you're in a good thrift store, LOL!
So here are some of my deals ~
A bought this crate box for $7.00 and used it as a planter. It now resides on my front porch. I bought the little white terracotta bird for $1.50.
I picked up this cute little bird clock for $14.00
I found these cute little copper bunny & rooster for my kitchen for $1.00 each
And I purchased this old tapestry for only $2.00
It was so much fun, y'all. We had a blast. We are thinking of heading over to Old Spring in a couple of weeks. Anyone been to old town Spring, Texas?
