“Regard it as just as desirable to build a chicken house as to build a cathedral.” – Frank Lloyd Wright
I have a lot of fun Easter decorations, but this year got away from me, so I just put out a few spring things. These little cuties are my favorite. I love their simple monochromatic style and soft, vintage colors. I usually pick them up at thrift stores for under a dollar, and I keep an eye out for them whenever I am poking around the shops.
Happy Easter and Happy Spring!

Sometimes I find some wonderful treasures at the thrift store to make it an extra merry Christmas. I thought I would share a few of my recent finds.
No markings on this piece, so it’s probably homemade– Which makes it even more special!

A lovely vintage Napco planter.
Merry Christmas and Merry Thrifting!

Today I’m sharing a little gallery of some green treasures in my stash – in honor of St. Patrick’s Day, of course. It’s right around the corner, and I’m sure everyone is thinking green!
This sweet little vintage planter says “Relpo” on the bottom and I don’t often see St. Patrick’s Day vintage items, so this is a favorite second-hand find.
This miniature chair came with a red couch at my favorite consignment shop! they make quite a pair! My chair fetish is legendary, but this one fit in my car and doesn’t need re-upholstered. Bonus!
I found this vintage strand of beads at the thrift store that are chunky, funky and definitely in the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day!
I hope you’re ready to get your green on! Erin go Bragh!

It was pure bliss to spend a little time yesterday at the thrifty shops…. My best find was this lovely, vintage Haeger flower vase. Every once in awhile the pottery gods are looking down upon me. I also can’t pass up cool old dictionaries, and I know that makes me sound like a crazy librarian, but hey. The letter dice and the cute little sand-timer came from an old game called Scribbage that I picked up for a song. Finally, this adorable little coffee mug was begging to come home with me for Valentine’s Day. Another day of good finds, great deals, and a little harmless retail therapy!
Happy Valentine’s Day and as always, Happy Thrifting!

Oh, thrift-store, how I love you! Look what I found! A sweet vintage planter and a little bunny salt shaker without its match. I put this together for Easter, but I think it should stay up a little longer!
