Thrifty Life Thursday #38 with Features from Last Week

A few weeks ago, I found out from Linda at Itsy Bits and Pieces that I had won a canvas with the photo of my choice from!

It was hard to decide what sort of image I wanted to print...but I did a little online research and decided that this image would work well in my living room revision. 

It is a study of bird wings by Leonardo da Vinci. I look forward to using it with some thrift store finds in a grouping above my "Gustavian" desk. I hope to show you this weekend.

Thank you, Linda, and! I love my canvas print.

Thank you to all the link-partiers this week! I love to see your treasures, and must fight the urge to run to the nearest thrift store.

Features from last week include...

Brooke from Creative Country Mom shared a creative use of a vintage zinc scoop - a planter for a cactus! She has other great ideas, too. Check her out!

Meg from My Vintage Life shared a new wall of lovely white shelving, which just so happens to be filled with amazing vintage finds. I love the way she displayed her vintage color. 

Tuula from The Thrifty Rebel found the pretty shelf above, and a number of other things, thrifting a couple of hours per week at lunch time. Love the design on that shelf!

Have a thrifty week!

      the Day drawing near.

      i just realized that these darn pumpkins are not second hand.....well, technically they can be right?

      Sorry! I've been working on them as if they were old pumpkins from the attic!
