My Finds ♥

My husband and I have filled our homes with things that fit our personalities. We have also done so for very cheap prices.  Thrift stores are the best stores.  (Craigslist is pretty awesome too).  Here are a few of our finds, our friends that share our home ♥

This is THE green chair, the one I write all of my blogs from.  I purchased three chairs, all similar to one another for $5 a piece, and carried them two blocks to my home.

Buffet: FREE
We got this beautiful piece of furniture to put our TV on.  I found it on Craigslist one night, around 11pm...and made my poor, loving husband drive me across our city to retrieve it from a curb.  The knobs are new, we (meaning my husband) built a new shelf for the inside.  I love this piece, it makes me wistfuly think of the wardrobe in C.S. Lewis' The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe.

This little gem proudly hangs in my little cove of a library in my home.  It reminds me of Pride and Prejudice.  Thrift store.  $4.99 (it was 50% off from$9.99).

Pair of Barstools: $25 off of Craigslist
Even though we no longer live in a home witha  breakfast bar, I refuse to part with these, I love them!

This is my newest little friend, I think his name is Chester.  I found him for $2 on a thrift  store excursion with my friend Joanne.  Isn't he precious!  I love his little puffed up body. 

Now that I feel thoroughly content with remembering all the the good deals God has given me for my home...I think I shall go clean it!

Have a lovely day ♥
