[ thrifting at habitat ]


I RECENTLY discovered our local Habitat for Humanity ReStore and I was like a kid in a candy store! We've donated many things to various ReStores over the years but I've never been to one so large and full of items other than just building materials.








So after rummaging around for about an hour, I scored a few awesome finds! A great shapely lamp just waiting for a paint job for $13, a crystal chandelier for $15, an original oil painting for my porch for $6 and an old window screen for $4 which will be great for my craft booth to display bag brooches. I'll show the afters in a later post. All in all, a successful thrifting day! 





And congratulations to Lynda at Happenstance Home, the lucky giveaway winner at Flourish Design + Style's 11 days of giveaways! Lynda has chosen my zebra iPhone case and it is on its way!

That iphone case is cute! I'm a bit confused... they have toilets there as well? I've never seen that...

I love the restore near us! I got tiles for the bathroom and a sink there. And here are always cute little kid chairs there that I want to buy even though we don't yet have kids!
