I liked this beautiful wicker rocking cradle at the thrift store. But it is not our time of life at the moment. At less than $20 I hope someone loved this wonderful deal.

Hello welcome holiday. Here are some things in the works. Our hostess gift for Thanksgiving dinner.
Last week we stopped by the Denver art museum to squash pennies and there happened to be a holiday sale going on. I bought this guy. Two layers of vellum and paper stitched together for this amazing rhino print.
I’m fixing up this frame for the rhino. He will hang near this rhino!
Some new kitchen herbs.
These lovely red rosettes are growing in the back garden, even in winter.
I’m working on reusable gift wraps. It is my plan that fabric ties and festive ribbons will be sewn on these hemmed squares and that they will be used for years to come. Less waste and prettier too.

Things in my house always look best in repeat. Many frames, many jars, many ties. A display of many similar items pulls things together and gives you big visual impact for your little objects. I love all the ceilings full of poufs or globes seen on pinterest. Have a collection of anything? Hang it from the ceiling. Instant art! I started with five objects. Several were thrifted and the big fish scale lamp I covered with dictionary pages over a year ago. This is our master bedroom. It is huge and empty. And I’ve come to realize that I’m going to need a lot more things to hang for this cluster to be filled out. But here is a start.

I didn’t buy anything today at the thrift shop. And have you noticed that when you are looking for something you never find it?
Here is an awesome paddle ball set. I love the graphics. $6.
I might regret not buying these foxes. They were cute and clean and what a lot of work someone did!

While visiting my parents recently I spent an hour in a really truly junk shop. Exploding overflowing overwhelming piles of all kinds of flotsam. I didn’t find anything I wanted. I could really see anything for all the stuff in the way!
