I just recently saw this quote posted online, "Life is cheap. It's the accessories that kill you." But the accessories don't have to kill you either if you love to thrift shop.
Something new from thrifting is always getting tucked in somewhere around our house. It's a way of life. Sometimes I know it will always be mine, like the new marmalade jar that was my favorite find in Lubbock, TX recently. But forever is a long time. Who can say?
I scooped up this delightful basket last week. It's auditioning under a table in the sitting room. (But baskets almost always get a permanent position around here.)
I'm constantly thinking about sewing custom basket liners, but about as far as I ever get is draping a pretty vintage linen towel or such over the edge.
I placed this large doily over the back of this chair two days ago to finish drying after the wash and decided I liked the view from here.
These little garden scatter tables are most likely destined for sale, but so handy for next to the couch in the meantime. (They have to set somewhere!)
A sweet new clock from the TX trip. Already a favorite.
This new addition to my transferware babies is only two days old!
The very last thing I was thinking was that I needed a sweet old etched mirror leaning against the hearth! Unfortunately (or fortunately) I like it here. (For the moment.)
I bought the last two of these ruffled shams at LaurieAnnas in Canton. She had them as seat cushions on a porch swing at the front door. The first thing I laid my eyes on. They are a heavy soft weave of linen and cotton, and when I looked at the label I saw that they are from Pinecone Hill. You can have some too! Here's the link.
This is the view of the spring sitting room taken through my kitchen pass-through window. The sofa is in the foreground.
The faces of home may (or may not) change with the weather.
But give me a life with plenty of accessories attached!
I hope it's all happening for you this week!
So nice that you came by!
