I've been back from Florida for less than a week and have already scored some amaaaaaaazing stuff at the thrift store. Seriously, this particular thrift store has been SO good to me lately.
In the above picture EVERYTHING was bought at a thrift store. You can also see three of my latest finds, all purchased this week: the two small vases (you have to see a close-up of the gold one, I'm IN LOVE with it) and the amazing Danish modern 3 drawer chest. Which I happened to score TWO of! AND I also scored the matching 6 drawer dresser! I'm telling you - I can't wait to share these finds with you all. Plus, I still have to reveal this awesome find from three weeks ago.
Do you follow me on twitter? If not, you totally should. I often post pics of items as I see them in the store and ask for input as to whether or not I should buy it :) or if it has potential.
Is it corny if I say I absolutely love my apartment. I mean, every single item in it - I love. When I walk in my door I feel like...happy. Everything perfectly reflects me and although it's a rental apartment it doesn't feel temporary. I have pictures on the wall. Things are unpacked. It's comfortable. It's me. And while everything was affordable I'd like to think you wouldn't be able to tell they were bought "on the cheap." Actually, I've been thinking of doing a series of posts where I break down the cost of each room or space in my apartment so you readers can see - good design can be affordable. Especially those of you moving into your first apartment (this is my first apartment by the way) and are starting from scratch - like I did. But would that make me....unclassy? I mean, I notice lots of other bloggers don't post the price of things they buy - they hint that it was affordable or that they got it at a "great price" but never really say what that price was. And I always wonder "Well, how much was it??" Whereas I tend to ALWAYS say what I paid, "I scored this for $2.99!" Lol. Is that a turn-off to you readers? Would you prefer I DO or DON'T say how much I pay for things? And would you be interested in a series of posts like what I just described....like a breakdown of different spaces in my apartment?
And thank you to all of you who commented on the sneak peek of some of the images I shot at my very first wedding shoot. Your comments were really a joy to read and I so appreciate it. I'll be sure to let you all know when the full post is up!
Have a great weekend!
My new-to-me sofa. - The last time I wrote about sofas, I was debating between two styles - a classic english roll arm or something a bit more clean-lined. Well, despite my lov...
