I am no expert with thrifting and antiquing. Actually, i am pretty terrible at it because I walk into a shop/flea market and get so completely overwhelmed and over stimulated that I end up leaving quickly without buying a thing. It is seriously annoying. I think I just get so excited about all the cool, cheap stuff that I can't handle it. Weird?
So I am very proud to announce that I came home today with my most thrilling discovery yet. I was at a local antique barn (apparently they are barns here in the south) coaching myself through the shopping process when i spotted it....it was almost as if a brilliant light shined down from the heavens and a brought us together.
Do I need to say more about why this is so fabulous? I will....the embroidery, the colors, the message, the chicken... and most importantly, the message.
I am going to paint the matte and the frame but I was so excited to share this discovery with everyone that I couldn't wait. I will post again once its painted and found it's spot on one of my walls.
Have you ever had one of these "magical" moments while thrifting? What was your find?
Thank you for stopping by, I am so glad you are here! Just a bit about me...I aim to live an authentic and creative life. I love design. I love craftiness. I love possibilities.I love connecting with people who love pretty things and who are passionate about living whole-heartedly.
