Speaking of potatoes…

Yup. I’m hot for potatoes. Preferably fried, but this time…

…..I can’t get enough of printing with potatoes, especially when they can transform one of the most widely-owned pieces of furniture from Ikea.  Continue reading

Serape Sunday: my DIY Mid-Century stool

It’s Sun-DIY, folks. Time to bust out the staple gun. For this project, I’m combining my affection for all things Mid-Century modern and my Linsanity for Southwestern, folksy, tribal textiles.

Thrifting Thursday: heavy metal edition

I’m mad about metallics. They sparkle. They shine. I guess I’m like a crow. So I thought I’d browse Craigslist in our lovely San Francisco Bay Area for all things shimmery today. We all know that brass is back but I’ll always be crazy for chrome.

Thrifting Thursday: Craigslist

Oh dear. Miss Thrifta-hoardaholic has been confined to the home due to circumstances I won’t disclose. But it’s Thrifting Thursday! Nobody said life was fair, so I must resort to trolling Craigslist (I know it’s not a new concept, but it’s still so durn fun).

Friday is the new Thursday. Or it is the other way around? I skipped my Thursday thrifting because I knew there wasn’t an additional discount on furniture, so made a plan to go tonight instead. My foresight borders on genius.

Throwback Thrifting Thursday

I’m thinking this will be a regular thing for my blog, because it gives me another excuse to indulge in my obsession treasure hunt. It’s a looney tunes habit disguised as motivation for fresh content. I know you see right through me. But here’s how *I* see it: when I hear from readers who get inspired to thrift at this very store, I feel gratified and it only encourages my behavior. So deal with it. You might actually score something.

Free!

Yes, I said the “f” word – the one that gets more attention than the other “f” word. I admit it, I spend waaaayyy too much time looking through trash in search of treasure. Does it pay off? Certainly. And this time, I’m doing it for you. We’re talkin’ FREE stuff, people! No buyer’s remorse!

Well, hello there!

When does it end? You know, that seemingly incurable urge to possess more and more material things? I’m convinced that I’ll take it to my grave. Until then, my wish list is constantly evolving for the hotties that I want but refuse to acquire due to dangerous hoarding tendencies and my quest for material detachment. (Those who know me personally, I can see you rolling your eyes and laughing. It ain’t helping.)
