Yesterday, I did something I had not done in a LONG time! I went to the thrift store. Like everyone, my life has been crazy lately, and I have gotten away from doing the simple things I love! Call me crazy, but my local thrift store is one of my favorite places to be. Maybe its because I know I can always find something to upcycle, or maybe its because it smells like old people, kidding, totally kidding. But I love it! Part of the reason I made a special trip in to the thrift store was to find a swap item for my Thrift Store Swap group! Regardless of the reason, I was happy to be there.
I found those cute little quatrefoil-type wall hangings for $2, the blank canvas for $1, the Authentic Louisville Slugger for $4, the plaque with hooks for $3 and a GIANT bundle of rafia for 50 cents! Is that a score or what? I also found a few other items to be included in my Thrift Store Swap, but I want them to be a surprise for my partner!
This Saturday, I have no plans, no work, and no school assignments that need to be done. Which leaves me with a full day to craft and re-do our gallery wall! All of this stuff really stuck out to me in one way or another. Although I could leave all items as-is, but what would be the fun in that? They're going to be transformed in to greatness. It will all be featured in our updated gallery wall, and I can't wait to show you how it all turns out.
Have a great Friday Y'all!
