Styling the baby's dresser: Found a place for my book ends!
I bought these chunky wooden tree book ends two years ago, and they have been sitting on the shelves in the storage room ever since! I wanted to style up and organize the top of the dresser in the nursery and I was glad to have them on hand*!
You see, yesterday, I was walking down the same block as Goodwill and I didn't go in. I mean, if you spot me in a thrift store, you won't see me hesitate- I like it, I buy it! Except, I am pretty sure that the definition of thrift is not: spend-cash-on-things-you-don't-need-and-hoard-them-in-your-basement.
But then this one little bit of staging gives me the go ahead to keep on thrifting!
Hey - I like that! Keep on Thrifting...this is my new slogan!
Or perhaps, Exercise caution while Thrifting should be my motto.
I'm on fire! Quick - someone make a poster and pin that sh*t!
ps. I want to show you some tiny changes I've made in the kitchen, the office, and other rooms. I just need to snap some photos! (Oh and let's face it, by the time I make one part of a room look tidy, the rest of it has been toy bombed and plastered with crumbs!!)
pps. we are hitting up the big box stores or a nursery this weekend to shop for more house plants. I need more green in my life! Maybe this is my way of welcoming (beckoning) spring!
ppps. the pictures should come back from the frame shop next week and I will show you them as soon as I get them up on the walls!
pppps. I feel like I have said all this before...ok, not the catchy new phrases, but the sentiment towards thrifting is definitely not new...
