Some of you know my love of a good buy or free trash - whichever comes first. I apply this theory to all areas of my life - design and holidays are no exception. To me, thrifty and lovely go hand-in-hand. Here are a few of my latest treasures.
Pic 1: This yummy Halloween paper garland has a wonderful handmade/vintage look. It's simple, festive and inexpensive at only $3 at Target .
Pic 2: This lamp base was free off the side of the road. The lamp shade is vintage and was purchased for $5 at an antique store. The flower is a pin off an old hat. Most lamps and chairs remind me of people. This one reminds me of Anne of Green Gables when she goes to teach in Avonlea - don't you think?
Pic 3: Waiting, waiting. These whimiscal Christmas trees (bought at 1/2 price!) are biding their time in my office, waiting to be adorned with all sorts of trinkets. Soon they will go to the shoppe and spread their holiday cheereryone to ev.
