GBTHS Thrift Makeover

GBTHS Thrift Makeover

How often does a girl get to shop using someone else’s money? In my case, not often. But this month, I did!! I was invited to participate in a thrift makeover competition (or Upcycle Challenge, as they’re calling it) for the Great Big Texas Home Show at the Dallas Cowboys Stadium. The guidelines were simple....
Bright Winter

Bright Winter

Boy, oh boy, oh boy… It’s been a while since I’ve let an entire week float by without a blog post. What can I say? A lot has been happening!! But enough of that. You’ll hear more from me on “the secret subject” later. Right now, I’m focusing on positivity, confidence, and a bright, cheerful...

Green Glasses… TAKE TWO

  It’s been a while since I published a “TAKE TWO” post. I’m not even really sure why… I certainly haven’t stopped thrifting!! Regardless, here I am with a brand new episode. And a couple cool sidenotes about the pieces I found. I picked up these green footed glasses at (you guessed it) Berry Good...

Thrift Treasure

Yesterday I made a long overdue return to my favorite Fort Worth thrift store, Berry Good Buys. I’ve experienced a few work related losses and was in need of some cheering up. Nothing does the job quite like thrifting! So, I grabbed my coat, purse, and camera (it’s always with me) and headed out the...

New Pillows – Quick Tip

I tout the virtues of second-hand shopping more than enough on this blog but I’m afraid you’ll have to endure my praises still. Last week, while scouting for an exciting patio project (keep your eyes open for that one in May), I came across these mustard, camel, and navy velvet pillows. At $1 a pop,...

Folding Screen… TAKE TWO

Today’s TAKE TWO post isn’t make believe. It actually happened… to me!! I walked into Berry Good Buys last week and beheld this dusty, aged, tattered old gem. I knew immediately where I wanted to place it in my home and made no hesitation in snatching it up. Our dining table is in a dark...
Twin Poster Bed... TAKE TWO

Twin Poster Bed… TAKE TWO

I came across this tall, twin-sized poster bed a few weeks ago and immediately thought of the charming country guest bedroom from the home of fashion designer Emerson Fry of EmersonMade (i love her designs, it’s no wonder i love her house too!). How often do you even see twin poster beds? Not much anymore,...
Pedestal Entry Table... TAKE TWO

Pedestal Entry Table… TAKE TWO

This series has been so much fun for me! Who doesn’t love an excuse to shop the local thrifts and fleas each weekend? Those that know me understand my obsession. Today’s post features a beautiful table I spotted at Berry Good Buys in Fort Worth. This particular table was really impressive – the details were...

A New Perspective On Recycling

Welcome back everyone!  Here are a few photos I discovered recently from a fellow blogger, Roz, at Clothes, Cameras and Coffee.  I was struck by her ingenuity and innovation with seemingly common materials, such as film negatives and newspaper.  I continued thinking about her images over the weekend and felt that this would be an...
