Are You a Collector? / New Thrift Store Finds

This will be a quick post because I have a question for you. Are you a collector of  anything? I’ve collected vintage clocks for a long time, but I kind of stopped buying them because they were so expensive everywhere I saw them.  I do love my collection of ironstone pitchers.

To Paint or Not to Paint : Recent Thrift Store Finds

To paint, or not to paint?  That is the question I hope you can help me with. My daughter’s vehicle was acting up, so we had to drop her off at work.

Flea Market Finds

He really wasn’t interested in {Read More}
