Estate Sale/Thrift

Painted Bedside Tables

  The last time I was in the US, I was thrift shopping and found 2 bedside tables for only $12 a piece, (even though I didn’t live anywhere near the thrift store, and couldn’t take them back to Korea with me,) I just couldn’t fathom leaving them there when they spoke to me, and…

Estate Sale Frame

I’m sorry about the rubbish photos, but I decided if I didn’t document this with my iPhone (at night) it wasn’t going to happen. (Seriously the story of most of what I do, if the big camera has to come out, it goes undocumented) I don’t know why some of the pictures are centered, and some are…

Lamp Parts {photo of the day}

I am busy today with my schoolwork/fieldwork, so I thought I would show you a picture of the items we got at an estate sale and Lowe’s 2 weekends ago to make a lamp from. The bowl and antique lamp stand came from the estate sale for $3 (even though it says $4, it was…

Thrifting and Estate Sales

So on Saturdays Paul and I like to hit all the local estate sales, and today was killer! We went thrifting/estate sale-ing and picked up some crazy great things that we have been looking for/didn’t even know we needed!

A fun find for Isaac’s room

So we went to a local antique store here in Alabama, and found a fun sign that Isaac BEGGED us to get for his room……. It’s glass that has been back painted by having the words done in gilt, and then black over the whole back. I am going to have to figure out how…

a flea market find and a summer treat!

Last weekend we went out estate sale and flea marketing; I got a couple of awesome things, but I am holding off on sharing a few of them because they are waiting for makeovers! I decided to share my favorite find of the day though, a vintage milk glass necklace with a silver and amber…

A super busy week!

This week was super busy at our house, it was the first week of summer for the kids, we had Father’s Day, we had friends over for diner (we had to dust the neglect from being so busy during the school year off of the whole downstairs) and I sewed like a mad person! The…
