Welcome friends! In case you missed the Halloween announcement last week by my fellow co-hosts, we're inviting you to share your ThriftSCAREthursday treasures (simply tag #thriftscorethursday to those photos!). You're in for a treat today!

This week we're kicking off some inspiration for you gys after sifting through our thrift scores this year to share fun/spooky/quirky/interesting costume and decor inspirations. We've also invited a bunch (SIX to be exact!) of our past hosts to join in and share their thriftiest Halloween Concoctions (you can check them all out at the bottom of this post!).

Last year BrynneCassie, and I, had a blast sharing fun and creative thrifted costumes (you can peek at those here and here). I may or may not have tried to squeeze in a kids sized costume and/or channeled my inner OITNB characters. 

4 #thriftscorethursday Green Glass Vases

Welcome to #thriftscorethursday friends! Hope your week has treated you well! One of my friends posted a weather screenshot via social media which predicted snow. Thankfully a friend of theirs was pranking them.

Surely it's a wake up call though- because I am NOT ready to bust out the winter boots or the whole scramble-to-get-everything-prepped-for-snow panic attack. Maybe I should get on that...

7 #thriftscorethursday Fabric Stash

Hello #thriftscorethursday friends! I hope you have been killing it this week so far!

Did you catch the #swapitlikeitshot thrifted makeovers this year? It started on Monday and a couple of your weekly Thrift Score Thursday hosts have made their own appearances this year. You can see what I sent a fellow thrifter Windgate Lane, the stash I got from I Am a Home Maker, and the makeover right here. Yes you read that right, I actually made over some thrited finds and I finally have a non-Thrift Score Thursday post out there (well it still involves plenty of thrifting though!!)! Nothing like a yearly challenge to light a fire under my tush!

But before I loose you in the miles and miles of inspiration and makeovers, let’s hangout and talk about this week’s TST finds…

20 Thrifted Makeover: Wooden Fruit #swapitlikeitshot

In my best Heidi from Tool Time voice “Do you know what time it is?!”

Swap It Like It’s Hot is a week-long blog hop coordinated by Charlotte from Ciburbanity where 40+ bloggers shop, send, and swap secret thrift finds and then give them a good ‘ol fashion makeover. This is the fourth edition and my second round (check here for my post last round).

14 #thriftscorethursday Light Bulb Jars

You guys really know how to rock those thrift store purchases! I was on vacation last week (which is why I bowed out of hosting duties last week) and happened to have extra time to marvel over all those goodies. To say I'm green with envy is a complete understatement.

I was also giddy have some time set aside to visit some of my fav SoCal thrift stores while on vacation. Of course it was incredibly difficult walking away from things I couldn't fit in the suitcase like this fantastic pair of Mid-Century chairs. You can see the other #catchandrelease find here. There's still a few left to share, but I have to dig through the SD card for those.

Anyway, on with the show:

15 Thrifted Makeover: Mini Abstract Art #SwapItLikeItsHot

You guys, I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am for today’s post. It has been far too long since I've posted anything tutorial-wise so I'm hoping that this post will curb some appetite.

You see, I've been following this super rad challenge called #swapitlikeitshot since its inception back in June when a good friend of mine, Dena from Hearts and Sharts told me all about it. Basically, a bunch of bloggers virtually get together, hit up their thrift stores, and send their blog partner a couple goodies to revamp. Then, we all repurpose those fun finds, come together and swoon over the clever transformations.

One of my favorite makeovers to date was this bird house turned herringbone mini-shelf from the super talented Alice from Thoughts from Alice.

Flea Markets, Thrift Stores, Estate Sales, and the like are beyond up my alley (hello, #thriftscorethursday much?!). So imagine my surprise when I opened and email from the hosts Charlotte of Ciburbanity and Jessica of Gourley Girl and Guy inviting me to play along. I may or may not have attempted some outrageously awkward adult cartwheel, which are so much easier when you’re young.

If you follow along in Instagram, you may recall a peek of this sweet thrift score package I received from my BFF/Thriftscorethursday/thrift sister from another mister Brynne over at The Gathered Home. Here’s another look:

The mini artwork, with those gawgeous gold ornate frames, called to me.

18 A little update.

This post has taken me far too long to put into words. So here goes…

My name is Trisha, and I have scaled back on this blog. There I said it.

This should come to no surprise to the four of you who actually read this thing like clockwork. Nevertheless, I felt the need to explain.

Rest assured, I'm not ignoring this beast that I've poured my heart and soul into over the past couple years. Rather, it all came down to a few life changes. The biggest one being this little fact: all the money I saved up to become an entrepreneur ran out. Maybe a bit too long ago.

Shocking news alert: DIY blogs ain't cheap. Not that everything is overly expensive, but those projects can really add up 'yo. So Instead of accumulating debt or falling down the Ramen noodle rabbit hole (insert colorful flashbacks to college), I knew it was time to re-enter the work force.

To my pleasant surprise, I landed the perfect position shortly before Christmas. I owe some serious high-fives to my lucky angels (and my killer references) for that one.

Before digging out the dusty business clothing, and the realization of showering daily sunk in, I became concerned for Biggie Smalls. She was so accustomed to seeing me every day, laying by my feet, and flat out being spoiled with affection and human contact 24/7. To go from one extreme to another was going to be rough. Ah heck it's probably an overly concerned puppy mom-thing?!

So we did what any dog-loving family would do, we added to our clan:

Lulu the Harlequin Great Dane, Blog Post: A Little Update | www.blackandwhiteobsession.com

Lulu, the Great Dane. We lovingly nicknamed her "Moo Moo." She was adopted just a few short days before I took the giant leap back into the office. Those of you following along on Facebook may remember this hilarious reenactment of her first few days with us.

I could go on and on about this old lady (she's 9!), but I'll spare you. This time.


Now, as with most new positions, there's a learning curve. This particular curve was pretty technical in nature which in turn, sucked the creativity out of this 'ol brain of mine. I also noticed that I was experiencing writers block. The kind where I felt like I wasn't providing enough FUN and interesting commentary. Some could describe it more of a bland, toned down, yawn-tastic version of myself.


Perhaps one of the biggest changes you may have noticed, besides the lack of posts, is my voluntary withdrawal from Outside the Box. Let me assure you, there's no beef or no juicy back-story behind my departure. Those ladies are hardworking and some of the sweetest bloggers I've had the pleasure of working with.
Outside the Box Link Party

It all came down to: me. I simply couldn't keep up with the new job AND posting crafty projects AND fun tutorials as frequently as I wanted. I felt like I was cramming weekly series down your throat without giving y'all enough originality.

All that said, if you're a blogger-- I hope you'll still link up to their incredibly inspiring link party. If you're a reader-- there are TONS of inspirational projects ready to be stalked every week. You can hang out with them Tuesdays at 5 PM ET on any of their blogs: Carissa from Carissa Miss, Elisha from Pneumatic Addict, Brandy from BD Design, and Megan from Splendid Design.


I realize there are tons of super-star/overachiever bloggers that are ambitious enough to juggle children and jobs and their blogs, but it's exhausting and I'm exhausted. This exhausted:

For real, she was asleep like this for a good half hour!

All that said, I'm not going anywhere. I have just yanked the e-brake. Hard. With the full intention of providing QUALITY over QUANTITY. Really thinking, planning, and pulling off projects with a bit more personality.

You can still catch me every Thursday here for #thriftscorethursday. It's one thing I've managed to maintain.

I cannot thank each and every one of you enough for sticking with me, through all the growing pains and this transition. I cannot wait to figure out how to juggle it all. So if you have any tips, I'm all ears.




Remember...
