Thrifty Life Thursday #9 and Features from Last Week!

Above, some deconstructed vintage books, a brass candle holder in which I put a child-sized croquet ball I found in my home when I moved in. It was all black, and I painted it white. (There were actually three of them.)

I am still working in my living room, incorporating radiant violet here and I hope to have sunny days for taking photos this weekend!

I have also reworked my middle bedroom to be all whites.

Next, I'll be delving into the front bedroom - which will have a whole different vibe!

I know everyone says this, but it is true! It is so darn hard to pick features! You are creative, clever, stylish people who offer so much inspiration! Thank you all who share, who link back, who leave polite and encouraging comments. You rock my world. :)

Here are a few stars from Thrifty Life Thursday #8:

Audrey from Timeless Treasures found some amazingly good deals on drool-worthy vintage goodness. I might be slightly green with envy, if she weren't such a sweetie.
It couldn't happen to a nicer girl! I can't decide if I like the pig or the shoe last best...or maybe the enamel light fixture...!

Abby from Abby's Way created a charming spring wreath using a variety of textures, found objects, leftover & recycled supplies and items from nature. 

Paula from Locksley Lane shared a lovely white distressed armoire with us. It has a lovely shape, and after over-doing a bit, then adding back paint, I think she distressed it just the right amount! 

This is one of those ideas that you wonder why you did not think of it yourself, or why you have not seen it done before!

Terry from Forever Decorating added details to a vintage chair revision. I was blown away! I think you will agree...

Your creativity and style never cease to amaze me! 

Thank you all for joining this very small party, for your encouragement and your sweetness. I am humbled and inspired!

      Hebrews 10:24-25
       And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, 25 not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.
