As I've said before, I love going to thrift stores and finding things I can give new life to. It's like a treasure hunt. I hadn't been in a while, so the other day I went to Goodwill in Buckhead. It was probably the nicest, most organized Goodwill I've ever been to. This is my loot:
A really beautiful set of vintage-looking lace placemats and matching napkins in excellent condition:
A cool iron/wicker plant stand to which I gave a makeover. Before:
You could use it for wine, but it's great for holding magazines. It also goes perfectly with my red dress picture.
I got a big stack of books. Seriously, $1.50 sure beats Borders or Barnes and Noble. And you can keep your Kindles - there's nothing like a real live book and the feel of the pages between your fingers. I got some cooking/instructional...
And some for pleasure reading...
Which should I read first??
