You've heard me say it before, but I love to go to the thrift stores. Today I thought I'd show you some of my favorite finds and how I use them.
This oil painting of Texas bluebonnets was found for 5$. It was in the original frame. I did a post about the artist here. I am using this for my inspiration for my spring family room decor, which I'll share next time. Love those colors. Did you know in Texas, people drive out in the hill country for miles to see the bluebonnets bloom in the spring? Bluebonnets are the state flower of Texas.
Be careful though, it's a very addictive habit. I do feel it gives my house many one of a kind decor items and furniture pieces for a fraction of the price of antique stores or new. It also helps if you are looking for a few particular things. I always look for vintage dishes, linens, frames, and things in my colors.Sometimes you leave empty handed and sometimes you hit the jackpot. Just remember to wash everything when you get home. What's your favorite thrifted item?
