thrifty thursdays...

this is going to be short and sweet...
i did thrift last night, but after ten minutes i gave up. the shelves wouldn't stay still and when i reached for something it appeared to not be where it pretended to be. worst still, i couldn't actually tell the crap from the gold.
i came away with a woven basket and even now i'm not sure whether it is any good.
i peer at it up close through my 'magnifying' bit and it looks nice.


i peer at it from a far, through my long distance bit and it looks just peachy


so i am trusting my instincts.
plans are a foot to 'dottie angel' it but not until my 'crafting' senses come back to me (gulp! what if they don't)...
you may note the wallpaper in the background, it went up this week on the dividing wall we had built over a year ago. on our trip to London, debbie and moi decided, in our 'orla kiely' loving state we should have matching wallpapered walls...
let me tell you it's not the type of wallpaper someone new to bi-focals should be looking at and even more so if they've had a 'tipple' or two...

she will be back tomorrow with thrilling 'part two' ~ Tif

gawd missy - you are going through the wringer....
i wish i could be there to lend you a supporting arm to cling on to, and a pair of eyes to thrift through.....
instead i am in a state of p.a.n.i.c as my parents are due in four days and my house is a tip...
why am i blogging and not painting?
i have no idea...
much love to you
stay steady and upright if you can :)

Try varifocals Tif. Then you can nod your head while trying to get things in focus AND look wise at the same time!

gorgeous 'orla' wallpaper, although i can see how dizzy-ifying it can be!
