Happy Rose Wednesday to you all! After my trip to the thrift store Monday I am very excited to share my ROSE post and the news that is going on at my house!
First I will share my "treasure hunting" then share with you where it is going.....
My youngest daughter is getting her own apartment, so I went on search of something to make her a roman shade for her bedroom as her window is very large AND she is on a College Budget....
You know how everything looks rosier as you pull in and see the 50% off everything sale...YAHOO!
Her room is plum and tan and what do I find but a beautiful plum and tan duvet...beautiful buttons ..anyway for $2 I walk away with that! I will try to share it on another post with a before and after!
Nice Mom huh? Yep...that was what I was thinking.....so as long as I was thrifting AND as long as everything was on SALE how could I not look for some other goodies? I am sad to see her move out but she turns 27 next week...so perhaps it IS time! Still I am a bit sad to see her leave the nest...but I will try to get over it! And it will be
such a shame to peer into her empty room
(big grins and giggles now girls) so I decided since that I really do need a Sewing Studio on the main level perhaps I should do something to make me feel better.......
So peering around I find a beautiful cushion for my rocker...$2---MINE.....a flat sheet...$2...Mine!
These were all in multi-colors...pinks,rose,blues,golds,greens,ivory and all had rose and mixed flower bqts....lovely!
Also found a few rag rugs in multi-color.
The walls are a "golden yellow" and there is no time to paint....so this should pull it all together nicely....as who would want poor ol, Mom to be sad any longer! Things are looking VERY ROSY here girls.....
I also found a beautiful vintage crewel chair cover....are you ready.....99 cents! The picture does not do it justice...but it will surely do my sewing chair justice!
So...I come out of the thrift store spending a total of about $12! Smelling pretty much like a Rose huh?
I had such a rosy outlook...
Two of us...budgeting gals...bustin with blooms all over!
Stay tuned for our continuing story..."Budget APARTMENT" and "POOR MOMS SEWING ROOM...EVERYTHINGS COMING UP SEW ROSY!"
