  1. Your Blog is so much fun it’s a lttle sad because our thrift stores are really puny around here so I read and dream. But I have been doing a few little projects like covering a block letter with flowers for my daughter and did you know that if you glue scrapbook paper down and put modge podge over it that the paper looks painted on? I think two quick and easy ways to fix your living room would be the art- you could either frame pressed flowers/ grasses or scrapbook paper in sprayed thrift storeframes of course and the curtains- you could add a band of theblue fabric to the edge of the curtains even cut apart one new blue curtain panel to line all the others. Hope this is what you were looking forwhen you asked for inspiration

  2. I like the pieces you chose. Can’t wait to see your art project. The vintage knob rack is givin me ideas….
