Lighting up my life...



Oh hello, fabulous vintage articulated lamp from the thrift store! It's very heavy and was very light on my wallet at only $12 (more than my typical thrift budget, but whatever). Score! My parents found the little mid century rocking chair at a yard sale for $5. Score #2! It needs to be reupholstered, but it's quite nice in person and very comfortable. I am happy.

Since our house is furnished with quite a few "side of the roads", garage sale, and hand-me-downs I love seeing the decorating style of those with the creative, love-a-bargain and recycle mindset. Your lamp and rocker are awesome!

Such marvelous finds! I love to thrift, it is the best feeling. I am very much looking forward to this season's thrifting adventures which will start up in about a month...

Love that lamp, I want one in gold and have been trying to get a used one like it from the makeup counter at Dillard's for awhile now if only I would stumble upon one at the thrift store instead.

Great finds! That chair is fantastic! I can't believe it was only $5.

I wish I had the thrift store (we call them 'op shops') magic, but I never find anything even remotely as nice as your lamp. Lucky!
