I am a lover of thrift stores and free hand me downs. I am shameless when I see something sparkle on the sidewalk with a free sign attached. My home as amazingly charming and cozy with all the pieces I have dragged home and accepted as others trash.
My husband has reprimanded me many a time with all the “trash” I bring home, however, once I have it scrubbed and set up he follows behind me fluffing pillows and straightening out table clothes. He is very proud of our home and loves bringing people here even if they have far more money and homes three times our size decked out in the finest furnishings.
My home will continue to evolve and become more enchanted as I find those prize pieces. I have recently redone my living room with some new furniture. I just keep replacing pieces as I find those jewels at the thrift store or someone blesses me.
Here is a tour of my home and how I have decorated with almost all free hand me downs and thrift finds. The few pieces of furniture we purchased new when first married, I regret to this day. What I find at nice thrift stores outdoes most of the new things out there.
