I love home. I love homemaking. I also love old, simple, charming. And I have never had alot of money. So thrift stores, garage sales and online auctions etc have been where I have bought the treasures that make my home a place I love to be. I can spend hours just wandering around markets looking for interesting bits and pieces, it is my relaxation and I love a bargain. This brings me joy 🙂
Most of these below were bought at separate times, just collected over the years. The most I paid was $6 for the largest one.The desk these sit on cost $20 at a thrift shop and I just gave it a light sand and oil. Most of the pieces on it I have had for years and I don’t think anything cost me more than $1.
Building a home is a work of love I think. And it can be any type of home we wish it to be, it expresses who we are. Me, I am a second hand Rose and wouldn’t want to be any other way 🙂 I get alot of pleasure from finding old treasures and giving them a new place where their beauty can be shown off.
