 ~thrifted~

Remember back on {day 4} where I posted a photo collage of a bunch of the things I collect and then encouraged you to display your collections? Well, this post is about how I display some of my pyrex collection as storage in my sewing hutch.

{That little jar was covered with a vintage tea-towel that I received from my grandmother. Just used mod podge to stick it on and the wrapped twine around the top and hot glued it!}

The pyrex is stacked on top of other items, stacked on top of other pyrex, and used to hold trim and fabric.

And, a mini-globe bank that I picked up in Central Oregon.

I also use some of my vintage scale collection to hold the pyrex.

{I also have a huge collection of Mary Engelbreit stuff…not thrifted or secondhand, but from the dollar bins at Michaels.}

Through thrifting, I have been able to finally turn my house into the home I had imagined on a budget that is realistic.

home is….{31 days} a thrifted pyrex collection.

{our home} is what thrifting makes it

I started “thrifting” a few months ago.

I’ve always liked to go “treasure hunting“…at antique stores, the Farm Chicks show, and other local markets/shoppes.

Initially, I went through a run when I would stop at a Goodwill almost every day of the week.

Through thrifting, I have been able to finally turn my house into the home I had imagined on a budget that is realistic.

It has recharged my creativity…for crafts and interior design.

Not to mention, I’ve started a few collections…

Vintage children’s books, map puzzles, embroidery hoops, vintage toys, globes, scales, vintage board games funky old artwork, and vintage pyrex.

I no longer go everyday, but you can bet if I drive by a Goodwill that I will most likely pull into that parking lot for a quick look around.

These photos are from my sewing desk…I don’t actually sew there, but it stores my sewing machine, fabric, and other pretty stuff.

It makes me happy.

Oh, and I have ALWAYS collected Mary Engelbreit stuff.

What recharges your creativity?

Do you collect anything?

home is…creatively recharged.

the good or the bad news first?

First off, Happy Valentines Day!

Here it goes.

The bad news

there were only 3 people who entered the february {colton+cadence} giveaway.

I can understand that without photos of what you would actually win why you may not enter. So, for March, I will be sure to have the dolls made BEFORE I post the giveaway.

That being said, here’s the good news

because I am feeling the LOVE today I will be giving all three of you a {colton} or {cadence} doll!

So, Megan, Kelly & Kam, please contact me at homeis {at} stephanytaddeo {dot} com and let me know which one you would like…{colton} or {cadence}!

home is…LOVE!
