Thrift Store Finds

Here is a set of paintings I bought for 50 cents at a local thriftstore.
Here is a set of vintage flower pictures I picked up at a thriftstore for only 99 cents each. Sorry about the reflexion in the pictures glass
Here is a sample of the border I am putting up in the hallway. Walls are a dark cranberry with white beadboard ceiling, white trim and doors except the one into the bathroom. The floor is being put down tomorrow and then I will take photos of the finished hallway.
And here is one of the reasons I am not stretched out relaxing.

Peggy, your "Chesterfield" (the Canadianism for couch) looks comfy.
Move the cat over and share it with her for a rest. You no doubt deserve it.

i am reading your blog early this morning avoiding going outside to feel the cattle beasts. With the wind chill it feels like -34C this morning.

Any cat stretched out on furniture in this house leaves themselves open to being picked up and snuggled. :D That looks like an open invitation from that cat!

The last pic is so cute, LOL!

I love getting a great deal on knick knacks I really like.

I have 1 bedroom in my house that same cranberry color. It's gorgeous. Too bad my MIL is occupying that room :p

Hi! When I am not lurking, I sometimes visit thriftshops and antique stores..my best buy was last week..I found three full size sheets made from 100lb.sugar bags (1930's) for $7.00 each. Two of the sheets will be used as backings for my quiltmaking and the one left I intend to use on my bed as a top sheet. That is also my secret to shopping thriftstores etc..never buy what I cannot make use of. I also found a "butt" can for the back porch and a lovely sampler that says "Live within your harvest" which I intend to give to my son as a housewarming gift. Your pictures that you bought are quite lovely and I think you got quite a good bargain!!! Sincerely, Caryn
