looking for something in particular and who half the time
or maybe a few somethings that I wasn’t even looking for
I actually have a good excuse to be shopping the thrifts right now
I have been on the lookout for a few pieces of architectural salvage & some pieces for
a few projects on the always growing to-do list.
I have been stopping in and wandering through the Re-Store more frequently
sometimes I just plain wander around.
Honestly, the Re-Store is a dangerous place to wander around.
There are so many fantastic pieces hiding among
and I was headed through the furniture section on my way out.
it was almost like a beacon light started shining on something.
It was on the dainty side
it was just laying atop an a chest of drawers
and was barely noticeable really
of perfectly chipping paint.
before I even got close to it.
I ran my fingers over it’s sweet paint and admired how delightfully it had aged.
I wiped the dust off the mirrors and saw the old streaky finish they had…
I was being sucked into that perfectly imperfect vintage trap…
It was covered in pale creamy delightful pink over the most gorgeous celadon green
& one side mirror had damage to the wood that
I don’t even have a heck of a lot of pink in my house other than flowers
salvage section 8 aisles back
You see, even though I thought I was thinking about not purchasing it
I already knew what this ‘ little vanity mirror that could ‘
and lots of head shaking as I pulled it out of the car.
I fixed the little mirror frame and slipped the mirror back inside
and removed the broken piece from the center
But for now~ I’m enjoying that sweet pale pink with that gorgeous vintage green
it is filled with beautiful photos and shares the art of blogging and what it means to different people.
There are a couple of bloggers you might know are in this issue as well
I am honored to be included!
