thrifting and tweeking

Thrift store shopping this week brought me (among other things) the ceramic owl - $.35 -
and Crabtree and Evelyn robe - $.75 
 Tweeking meant switching lamps (and a shade)
and hanging the two paintings in their interesting made-in-Mexico frames.
 I found it next to impossible to get the color right on the picture, below.
You'll have to trust me when I say the strips on the shade
match the colors on the curtains--which are NOT green!


  1. Oh my, I love the robe, seems so cozy!!!

  2. I love Crabtree and Evelyn...everything Crabtree and Evelyn!

  6. I concur with all, that robe was a great find! I had to laugh at your color frustration! I cannot seem to photograph a true red. It usually comes out orange. Great thrifting!!
