i love to visit thrift shops in fact i think it has become a problem for me! it is a fun pastime that sometimes holds some great treasures. i’ve been looking for a clock for my yellow kitchen and haven’t had great luck at the retail stores. so this past weekend, i just happened to drop in to one of my favorite thrift shops and they were having a sale…75% off everything! actually, the prices are already pretty good at these second hand shops, so getting things on sale is so cheap! i found this very cute yellow retro looking clock and it was only $2. it was a little dirty and need a little bit of love (i think that what kept it from being noticed), but once it was cleaned up…it was so bright and cheerful! i just love it.
so, for valentine’s day my wonderful husband bought me a beautiful white orchid. of course, it came in a red pot that was perfect for valentine’s day, but actually the color is too bright for the rest of the decor in my house.
so, i was on a mission to find a new container. lo and behold i found a silver vase and i love it with the orchid. the silver is so fresh and i love how the orchid looks so elegant! hope i have inspired you to visit your local thrift shop and find some great treasures for your home! thanks for visiting and have a wonderful weekend, happy friday!
