I do love a good thrift outing, don't you? I mean how great is this hand lettered Mildred mug that I found at a local thrift store? (There was an "Orna" mug as well but I opted for just this one). I love thinking about who might have spent time creating this. I wonder who Mildred is. What is she like? Where is she now?
I also had some luck in the clothing department. My closet needed more staple skirts and I love these. At four dollars a piece, I have no regrets.
I've found that there is something creative about scouring racks and bins for just the right treasure that speaks to you...You have to trust yourself enough to bring it home and give it new life. It takes an element of risk...even a slight rush is involved. I love it.
