It's the season to avoid stress and get some rest/quiet time for anyone who's afraid the holidays could set them back down the crazy spiral. So, the Etsy Shop listings have to wait. First, the weather has been ugly. I count on natural light to make my pics look halfway decent, and with my schedule/apartment, there's literally a very small window for which to try and snap some pics. I got this incredible vintage, patterned dress from last Saturday's 50% off for club members day at Savers. It's really fun, but you'd never know it from the way my pictures came out.
I That vintage-y tablecloth was also picked up from the Savers sale and it's going to be a gift for my mama, because she likes old-timey table linens.
Look at the retro picture on that old cutting board! It's so beautiful! And luckily, it's previous owner had the good sense to use the other side for cutting--it's in great condition! It reminds me of the illustrations from Margaret Wise Brown books. I think The Winter Noisy Book (via My Vintage Avenue) came to mind. I'll try and sell this one after the holidays.
And what to my wandering eyes did appear? Some cheesy brush trees and eight plastic reindeer. I made some cheap, and hastily put together terrariums for coworker gifts! It's the thought that counts... Full report on those, this week...probably. Does anyone really need me to show them how I made terrariums? I probably did 'em wrong anyway. Those reindeer were found in the Savers plastic bag section, last year--right around January, when I had already gifted some terrariums without the proper woodland creatures. So, I finally put those things to good use.
Happy Thrift-mas, everyone. Linking up at A Living Space and Sir Thrift A Lot., maybe elsewhere!
