Hey All! And a good day to you too. I have a new feature at the bungalow. It is called "THRIFT STORE SCORE". I am hoping to make it a weekly thing.
Like many of you, I am a thrift store junky. Hopelessly, totally addicted. And the only cure is a marathon viewing of Hoarders. Even then, I am likely to shake off what I have seen and jump into Betsy and head for the nearest thrift. I should add that Betsy now drives herself to them without help from me!
Now, you may be somewhat confused if you read my "Downsizing" post, but, I do re-sell some of what I drag home. I will clean it up, fix it up, sew it up, paint er up and then give it up (for a few shekels!). After all, a gal has to make a living somehow. (especially if she is prone to "blue spells" and feels like a round peg in society's square hole at times!)
So, here is a pic of this week's thrift store score....
A beautiful headboard, which is about to become a bookcase. I will take off the doors, and the bottom spindle things, and paint it a lovely soft white. It should sell very quickly after I put my hand to it. That is, unless I fall in love with it, then, something will have to leave the bungalow if the bookcase comes in. (My new anti-hoarding rule: something comes in, something leaves)
I also bought a white cotton skirt which does not fit, but, it has lovely ruffles which I can remove and attach to the bottom of a t shirt or make curtains, a slipcover detail or whatever. The cotton is soft and nice.
In other news, I feel a rotten cold coming on. My chest is congested, my nose is runny and I have a cough that feels like it is coming from the bottom of my boots it's so deep. Ugh. I never get colds, but I guess I didn't dodge the bullet this time.
I would like to end this post by saying how deeply grateful I am to have followers. I appreciate each and every one of you and the support you have shown to me since I started this blog. I will do my best to do my best with every post.
