I'm normally a garage sale person over a thrift store person (I think you find better deals at garage sales) but with only one kiddo at home during the day, running errands and browsing a thrift store or two is suddenly much easier than before. I wanted a few things for decor in my newly painted dining room - I spotted this wicker owl for $1 and grabbed him just in case. At home I gave him a fresh coat (actually several) of spray paint and I think it updated the look - thoughts??
Also, I am drawn to designer fabric - I can spot it a mile away - so while browsing housewares I spotted this dress and had to check it out. I bought for $3 just for the fabric thinking I could cut it up, but it turns out it's my size. I think it's a little juvenile for me (it'd be perfect for a 14 year old girl I think), but I love the print - maybe a new life as a skirt? I would feel a little bad cutting it up - it's so well constructed, fabric print lines up exactly centered, fully lined, etc - whomever made it sure knew what they were doing.
