I made a great score at the local thrift stores on Thursday! I got 3 adorable dresses(one Ralph Lauren), 3 shirts, and a Madeline book for Hope, all for about $14. I know, not as cheap as the thrift stores in most areas, but MUCH cheaper than buying new! For me, I found a brand new, with tags, Brooks Brothers shirt for $3.95. Perfect for work. The thing that I'm really excited about is this:
I've been looking for a cheap brass chandelier for our kitchen eating area so that I can copy this:
Glenn checked to see that it works (it does!) and I've given it a first coat of spray paint. I choose to use matte black instead of the brown that they used in the magazine, because that is what we had! I'm so glad to get rid of the current light fixture. Not my style at all. I'll post a photo as soon as it is up. The kitchen mini-redo is almost complete!
