The girls officially moved up to big girl beds last week, and along with a trip up to Ikea, ripping out an extra door and a fresh coat of paint (okay my husband and father-in-law did those last couple of things), I've been gathering all sorts of ideas for sprucing up their room. Here are some of my favorites from around the web:
I'm an avid thrifter all year long, but something about spring (or at least the beginnings of it) makes me even more eager to go hunting for a good find. Oftentimes I'll come across several of the same item which individually may not seem special, but en masse you have an instant collection to show off. Today I've gathered seven things to keep your eye out for on your next trip to the thrift store.
I have had the pleasure of knowing my friend Wendy Copley of Wendolonia for several years now, in fact she was among the first blogs I started following! If you don't already know Wendy, she is a crafter extraordinaire. From sewing, scrapbooking, cooking, and general crafty awesomeness, this lady does it all--and with a wonderful sense of humor, too.
I first fell in love with thrift stores when I was in middle school. I loved that I could buy almost an entire new-to-me wardrobe for around $30. I also began collecting knick-knacks to decorate the walls of my wild teenage bedroom (I had a big think for 60's and 70's zodiac ephemera). I've carried on both the clothes and home decor thrift store shopping well into adulthood, and I thought I'd start a series of posts sharing how I've used my favorite thrifty bits in our home. Today we'll start with the hallway (because it was the cleanest!).
