What are you drawn to when you thrift and yard sale? I am drawn to old pictures of the ocean. I have loved the ocean for as long as I can remember…so much so that I moved to Hawaii after college for 2 years! It was everything and more that the postcards show! So when I thrift, I immediately go to the pictures and frames section and scour for another old ocean pic. And when it has a great frame like this one…my heart goes pitter patter!
I’ve been trying to collect enough so that I can do somewhat of a collage over my bed. I found one yesterday. It needs a coat of paint on the frame, but it thrills me! Actually, Im thinking of painting all the frames…but I love the gold patina of that first one! I haven’t painted them nor have I hung them because my room looks like someone threw up green split pea soup all over the walls. We’ve been in our home for almost a year and our bedroom and bath are gross! Next project is to work on those without spending a dime! I think that will be a challenge, but it’s do-able.
So, what are you drawn to? What do you run to first when you enter a thrift store?
