Thrifting for Decor

Phew, that last post was heavy! Let’s lighten things up with a sneak peak at a project in the works.

front without numbers

This is what my front porch looks like right now, except the grass is covered with snow!!! It was a lot of fun to put together for Christmas. I raided my mom’s fabric stash and wrapped the pillows and cushions with Christmas fabric and a wool blanket of my Grandma’s. I really love it, but now that Christmas is over, it SCREAMS Christmas a little too much. I need to tone it all down for winter.

So I’m starting with this….

A a wool blazer, a lovely collection of worn plaid shirts, and a terribly shaped cable-knit sweater, all for under $3 a piece. They are going to be the new pillow covers.

I’m keeping a look out for some antique looking skis, sleds, and ice skates as well.

I think that’ll get me through the winter.

I’ll let you know how it’s going on Friday. See you then!
