Not only has the Thrifting Fairy been smiling upon me with great regularity, but I have also had the privilege of meeting such very lovely people at tag sales and estate sales. It's been good fun.
I feel very privileged when I am at an estate sale. It is a glimpse into an entire lifetime, and I feel very respectful and a little bit sad when I am walking through a home. But at the same time, the items I choose to take home with me are going to a place where they will be loved, appreciated and sometimes even given a second career.
And that is why I am sure the Thrifting Fairy is so nice to me.
I could not resist the swirls of colors in this textured painting, nor the bright and colorful graphics of this vintage chinese checkers set. This Jesus statue belonged to a grandmother, whose grandaughter said she had it for as long as she could remember.
The vintage thread and sewing box, well... need I say more?
