recreational thrifting

 It's been a long time since I've had such good luck at a thrift store!
 Yesterday, squeezed in between reading sessions (see more HERE)
  my husband and I stopped in to a thrift store that is TRULY a thrift store.
 $8.25 bought us a beautiful pillow, a jigsaw puzzle, four tops and a skirt and a jacket for me, and a     pair  of jeans for him!
A recent purge of several pieces of clothing I no longer wear
left space in my drawers and closet. 
I am thrilled to have these "new" items that will perk up my spring/summer wardrobe.
And the pillow!!!!  A real beauty.

things turquoise

 Some time ago, we spray painted our chandelier a metallic blue color.
It really wasn't quite the color I'd thought it would be,
but I did nothing about changing it.
 Then I found these shades on the internet
 and things began to come together!
I hung a vintage curtain panel that had been folded up on a shelf
and things turquoise began to come out of the woodwork!
and who knows WHAT next?
