It's a thrifty day...

I found this and this book at the Thrift Store for $1 each. I could tell by the cover that I was going to like the images inside. Both books are from the 1960's. I thought that I would frame the pages and hang them in the playroom. That is one room that I have paid zero attention to. When we first moved in I did purchase the bird cage chandelier from Alice Lane. That is the only special treatment that room has received so far.

Speaking of Thrift Stores, my cute friend Marti purchased this eye catching lamp and made some changes to give it a new life. She painted the base and put new fabric around the shade. I love the finished product. Doesn't it look good? She spent a total of $25, I'm sold! I am a believer that you can make your home unique and pretty with out breaking the bank, you just have to get creative!

Holy cow that is a good idea to take pages out of art books! K save me some good ones, and they would be good for stacking. Thanks for the good idea!

Hi! I'm a new reader. I love those books you found and those will be perfect in a playroom - what a great idea. And that lamp is really great - she did a great job updating it.
