Recently I came across this handsome bone inlayed serving cart. I think it could really great in just the right spot. I think the spotting is just as fun if not more so than the buying and this, like most of the things I find, stayed at the spot where I found it. I think in small doses bone . . .
So in the days before I got the keys to Gather I was on one of my many morning thrifting trips when I saw this couch. I knew I wanted some big, bold florals in the space but was planning on creating some wallpaper and putting it behind the bar/cubicle areas. However, I thought this couch might . . .
My daughter has been sleeping in one of those cribs that converts into a toddler bed. It has worked well for us but she is definitely outgrowing it. Her room is like the final frontier in regards to decorating in our house and could really benefit from some sprucing up. I've been on the hunt . . .
Here's a collection of some of the things I've scouted for Gather (& others) over the past couple of months: . . .
A couple of recent thrift scores: Modern stool, bust and bottle all under $10. Same goes for the gorgeous fabric. I get asked a lot how I find such great things, I think you really have to just enjoy the thrill of the hunt. Sort of meandering around until you spot that one thing. I go often, a . . .

Recently we were in the area for a friendâ€™s wedding and stopped into the museum. What a treasure to find and . . .
This weekend I meandered around various antique stores and had brunch with my fellow vintage lover/blogging buddy, Diana of Please Sir.

What is this random pile of goods pictured you ask? It's today's thrift store bounty I amassed for under $50. My garage/studio space is the last frontier in our house as far as decorating goes. All the other rooms while I'm not sure will ever be "finished", still feel cozy and liveable. I made . . .
