"Simple Inspirations....Around The House"


     Does your home feel like a warm cozy blanket? How about the furnishings? What does it say about you? It's no big secret [anymore] that it doesn't have to cost a fortunate [that's unless you have one and it really doesn't matter] to furnish your home beautifully just like all the popular magazines and shows we love to view. The only secret is blending the old with the new and you'll have exactly what you want without breaking the bank.

     When I'm shopping regardless if it's a thrift store, consignment store, new store, Goodwill or whatever... I have a plan... a color palette...,a design style... and a budget [well sometimes]! But that's okay because there's a lot of fabulous finds just waiting to be picked up no matter the budget...just have fun and be patient. I'm still collecting and finding fabulous things. Some of them I will keep and some of them I will sell.

     Nevertheless I love the thrill of the hunt... of the totally unexpected, unbelievably find that falls right into your lap just because I'm in the right place at the right time. It all takes time, patience and a little luck! .

    Here's some of my lucky... being in the right place at the right time finds... Enjoy

Vintage lamps

  And the list of finds keeps going on and feel free to browse when you find the time. Just remember inspiration is all around you...happy collecting, thrifting and decorating!
