These photos are old and taken at one of my very favorite shops in Akron!
My impatience has taken over. Impatience to take care of things. Talk about things. Search for things. Do work for things. I mean hello, I'm at the thrift store browsing like a kid in a candy store and I noticed myself staring down an aisle saying "Nah." That's NOT what good thrifters do! I literally now run in, browse housewares and dresses then leave. I suppose it's due to the fact I don't want to be there digging all day. By the way, am I the only one that feels ridiculously dirty after thrifting? I swear the second I'm in the car I'm breaking out my hand sanitizer. Then when I get home I immediately throw the clothes in the washer! Haha. But I mean seriously, isn't it odd that thrift stores sell underwear? Not to mention, I went to a Habitat for Humanity today and actually saw toilets, that were still dirty! Dirty as in, you-know-what was in them! Ew! Not trying to diss these places, I just personally feel weird after leaving. My most favorite things I own were thrifted!
I found TWO of these pretty clocks. Kept one, sold one. It's my favorite!
One of my most recent favorites!
Thanks Kaelah for urging me to get it!
This number was $10 and asking to be up-cycled!
The curved tufted couch behind me.
[one of the only -poor quality- pictures I have of it!]
It's absolutely stunning and will stay in my life forever!
Since I'm moving out in t-minus THREE weeks! I've got a lot of packing to do along with shopping! Since Brent and I are going to live separately I've gotta pick what to leave at his apartment and what to take to mine. It's been really difficult because as much stuff we have at Brent's, I've still got a massive list of things to purchase still! Like hello, a trash can? Yep, might need that! I've got a chair, our kitchen table, bed and dresser. The big things I need still are a sofa, area rug and storage! My friend forewarned me that huge sofas will not make it up to the new place! So I'm off to find a new one, my previous baby will have to stay at Brent's!
Saw this little one today and fell in love. Then, after contemplating for 30 minutes I fell out of love. I decided to walk away from this $10 charmer. It was plush, but full of stains and a little low for comfort. I've always had a lot of luck finding great furniture though so I know the right one will come to me eventually!
I also found these fun, sunny plates in a set of 8 for $4! Remember my crazy dinnerware ideas? They were cute, but I knew I could do better price wise on my own! These will be a great start. When I showed my mom she said they "looked so me." Haha. I love when people look at something and know I'd like it.
I got a bunch of new dresses to add to the shop too! I will add them when I find my camera!
On a side note: My little blog is starting to come together after only a few months! I'm so happy about all the amazing blogs I've found out there to inspire me and those of you that follow me to keep me going! I just purchased an AWESOME item for a giveaway that I'll be posting after another ten followers! I know that the blog is still really random and unorganized, but I promise in these next few busy months I'm going to try to bring it all together.
