I am joining Rhoda once again for her Thrifty treasures party.
When I said I didn't find much at the Longest Yard Sale in my last post, I wasn't complaining. I love thrifting. I mean, how else could you find a ten dollar shiny brown 70's era rocker and with a bit of sandpaper and spray paint, turn it into a faux antique?
However, I think I am becoming much more discriminating in my quest for junk. How much can I possibly use? We collect many things at Frippery Farmhouse. Hubs loves his globes and I love children's books.
We both love postcards of local scenes in times past. How do you keep from overloading?
I have noticed that I have been passing up things I normally would jump at. For example, I did spy a few things at the LYS that definitely caught my eye. I love these aluminum canisters and the tray but I already have more than I need very much like them. I also loved the yellow wood stand , then I realized I have a similar white one at home.
I was gaga over this cute cabinet but once again, I have one very similar to this already. So I feel I have learned to pick and choose. Not only do I save mass amounts of cash by decorating with vintage pieces, I save even more by not buying the ones I do not need one more of.
You see, I wasn't disappointed about not finding more than I did. I found lots of things I loved, but didn't need. The love of the hunt will never stop. I will just be a bit pickier.
Have a Thrifty Monday, P.
P.S. What happened to my blog break? Ha ha!
