Thriftin'!

I found this really cool thrift shop today. They had drawers full of little country accents...hankies, and some of the architectural things I love.
There were cupboards with pictures, dishes and all sorts of decorative shelves.
Just look at all the candle holders. You could find something for almost every decor, except modern.
Even a spot for canning jars, coffee pots and baskets.
Look at this cute assortment of small chairs, bird houses and large candle holders.
There is only one problem with this cool store. I already own everything they have! How can that be? I've been going to organize my messy store room forever. This was my son's bedroom and it had this great cupboard in it. The only problem was, it still had lots of his stuff. I packed his junk up and put it all in the closet. I knew these cupboards would work great for storing all my goodies. At least now I'll only have one area to look in.
I still have all my seasonal stuff, except Christmas, in the basement but I'm not sure if I'll move it up here or not. I'll decide when I use it.
Would you like to come shopping in my thrift shop?
Sorry, I can't part with this stuff. There are a couple boxes of things I can get rid of though!

I was totally taken!!!! Ya know, one of these days designers and architects will finally figure out that what we want isn't a four bedroom five bath home -- what we really one is a two bedroom 10 closet home. It's all about the closets.

Cute stuff you got there -- no wonder you can't part with it.
