July 14, 2009In Their Natural Environment – Jems Recently Spotted While Thrifting
Hello, all! So, what do you think of the progress on the new theme? Do you love it? Hate it? Think I should go back to the old theme? The only thing I am really struggling with now is that the width of the center column in this theme isn’t as wide as the other, so my old posts are having problems fitting into the new format. Also, I wish I was better at personalizing themes, but what are you gonna do?
Anyway, here is a super cute set of dishes I saw recently at the Cat’s Meow in Bay City. Tom (who is THE Hubs by the way, I finally decided to use his real name!) gets upset enough when I bring home one dish, let alone a whole set. So I just decided to bring home a photo when it came to these dishes.
Here are a set of really sweet tables I saw at the local ReStore not too long ago. The wood wasn’t quite the right color for our place (sometimes amazing original woodwork isn’t so great – like when you have to try to match it). The tables were too gray instead of the light, warm honey color of our woodwork. But I did love them so. And I think they were only $15 a piece. They didn’t last long, so I am sure they were a great score for someone.
Here is a beautiful kelly green couch that was at the local Goodwill. I did cry a bit over this one. Hubs wasn’t too thrilled when he saw it, and it really didn’t go into any of our color schemes, so I can see his point. On the other hand – it was green! Kelly green! And practically brand new. Ah well, such is life!
And last, another great item from ReStore. I loved this cute green chair. I thought Hubs would really like this one, but once again, refusal. Not that I am getting down on him. If it were up to me, our house would be packed to the gills already with stuff. It is probably good that he tempers my enthusiasm. And, I know if I really, really want something, he will cave. I just wish that something would have been this chair!
