A Thrifty Christmas
Merry Christmas to me! My friend and I went thrifting the other day and came back with all sorts of things. Considering we don’t have much of a variety here, when it comes to thrift stores, I think we did pretty well. I’m hoping to find some great thrift stores on our next roaptrip! Anyone know of any thrift stores in Canada?
I got a scarf for $1.99, a Louisa May Alcott hardcover book for $3.99, (Under the Lilacs) two bird sculptures, and a pretty heart knick knack – all in a plastic bag for 1.99! For the sculptures I’m going to paint the coloured one white, and then paint the yellow beak on the other one white. I’m loving the scarf, wearing it right now! Has anyone read Under the Lilacs before? It has beautiful illustrations inside, ahhh so pretty! :)
We also found a nifty magazine holder that we’re going to try to re-create! I’ll make sure to post a DIY tutorial once we’ve made it. For now I’m saving up all my newspapers and flyers. :) Here’s our sneaky photo of the holder – isn’t it great?
Hope everyone’s having a great week! Happy New Year! :)
