  • Snipped away the sleeves and collar, belted in the fullness, and now this men’s large shirt is perfectly suited for my spring wardrobe! Madewell jeans, belt, and bag ALL came from the thrift. .

  • Thrift store score of the past week goes to this perfectly pastel sweater; I’m loving the fringe most of all!  And yes I know I’ve got a few buttons to replace... 😬 The past two weeks have been a whirlwind of crazy good thrifting hauls and some super exciting developments for my blog and my business.  More details to come soon, but for today it’s slowing down and spending a day relaxing with the hubs.  Happy Easter!! 🐰🐣 .

  • As I continue hunting for vintage items for our mudroom, it’s got me thinking about all the different collections I’ve started, and first aid kits are one of the first.  Typically low cost and easy to find at flea markets, it was the first item I started collecting when we bought our home. 2 years later and I’ve got 2 walls full of them in our guest bath.  But I can always make room for a few more!

  • Yellow is the color of the season and I’m sprinkling it into my wardrobe, one thrifted find at a time.  Shirt and skirt were a combined total of $5 from @goodwillcolumbus and my earrings are from local artist @waxandwanehandmade which I’m totally loving with everything I own.  I love sifting through the thrift stores for seasonal wardrobe updates and today on the blog (link in bio) I’m sharing a few of my favorite yellow finds.  Spoiler alert; none of them cost more than $5 and all can easily be paired with jeans for everyday!

  • Picked up this vintage children’s toy ironing board at an auction a few months ago and finally inspiration struck! I used @officialcricut vinyl which went right over the small rust spots (much easier than painting!) and added a couple magnetic hooks for those single socks ever awaiting their match to return from the dryer...

  • Back in the day I paid WAY too much for denim, and I’m embarrassed to say that when these expensive jeans became too distressed to wear I threw them in the back of my closet and totally forgot about them...until now.  Taught myself a new stitch technique and repaired them with denim scraps and an embroidered napkin I picked up at a flea market.  It’s safe to say these jeans will be making their to the front of my closet from now on!

  • I’m not sure if I buy shelves so I can cram in more vintage goodies, or I buy vintage goodies so that I need more shelves... 🙈
Either way, this little shelf cost me $12 at the flea market this weekend and it’s the perfect way to bring a little color into our den for spring!  What items do you refuse to pass up when your out hunting?

  • Distressed wood is a color and texture I never get tired of!  Today on the blog (link in bio) I’m sharing how I built this little mudroom bench from a $7 sled I found at an estate sale.  These sleds are becoming more common to find, and it’s a super easy DIY with minimal tools or space needed to complete.
