There's just something about the holidays that makes me want to pack away all my home decor and go all Martha Stewart and bedazzle everything. But alas, our holiday traditions are at a standstill- as in I'm a bit decor paralyzed. That is why I'm super excited to live vicariously through y'all and your Outside [the Box]-crazy beautiful decked halls.
Welcome back to #thriftscorethursday. We're so glad you're here. In case you missed the memo a few weeks ago, Brynne and I have two new-ish co-hosts with us and we're thrilled they're just as nutty as we are about thrift stores.
Oh and my score this week doesn't produce drop-dead gorgeous photos-- but the project I have in store to use is going to rock my socks.
Here's the deal yo: Brynne from The Gathered Home, Cassie from Primitive and Proper, and Corinna from For My Love Of, along with our surprise guest poster: Kyla from House Of Hipsters, invite you to play along with our little Instagram party. Simply snap a pic of your thrifted treasure(s) and throw the #thriftscorethursday hashtag so we can all marvel at your goodies.
40 weeks. 40 weeks of this #thriftscorethursday madness. A LOT has happened in 40 weeks.
We went from three hosts, to two for many weeks. Brynne and I and all you lovelies out there bonded over the thrill of the hunt. Then we did a call for guest hosts (which is still available, see the bottom of the post). Then finally, we added Cassie as a permanent host and just last week, Corinna was the latest to join our cast of thrifters. We've reached over 1,200 hashtagged thrift scores over on Instagram and couldn't be more proud.
We are so absolutely thrilled for each and every one of you and your killer finds. Like Brynne said here "I wish the technology existed to teleport #thriftscorethursday finds." But then we'd be a super-mega hoarders.
If you're new 'round here, Brynne from The Gathered Home, Cassie from Primitive and Proper, and Corinna from For My Love Of, along with our surprise guest poster: Morgan from Charleston Crafted, invite you to hang out with us on Instagram. Simply snap a pic of your thrifted treasure and throw the #thriftscorethursday hashtag so we can all marvel at your goodies.
It's Tuesday which means it's time for my favorite inspiration party: Outside [the Box]! I'm so excited to see what you've been up to this week. I hope to see a lot of Thanksgiving posts as I'm fresh out of ideas on that holiday!
Once upon a time this girl (points to self) never wore jewelry. Boys must have been in heaven- no expectations for awkward jewelry purchase for valentines day. I had a hard time even wearing a diamond ring-- I was once married and a bit more of a tom boy back then.
Then one day I found my ‘style’ which happen to be the bolder/gaudier the better. Still sort of is. It usually involved moustache rings (before that was a fad) and owl necklaces (also before it was a fad). Originally I tossed them in a bowl and dug around every time I wanted to dress up my outfit. I found myself growing increasingly annoyed when reaching for tangled necklaces and quickly outgrew that method. Of course a traditional jewelry box wasn’t going to cut it… oh no. I simply HAD to make something that fit my lifestyle.
