I love finding things around my house that need a new home. I also love antique and thrift shopping. This morning was my weekly morning out alone. My sister watches the kids and I go to a coffee shop to write and often stop by a shop or two. This morning I saw that the local antique store is going out of business and everything is on sale. I went in and found a southwest wool rug, an industrial pendant lamp, a woven basket, a black walnut bowl, a Windsor chair, and a midcentury wire shelf for very minimal cost.
I had also been eyeing the African woven market baskets at Tolt Yarn & Wool in Carnation, so when I went to pick up chicken feed in Fall City yesterday I stopped in and snagged one. I love it so much.
Amidst the monotony of dishes, laundry, and disciplining children and puppy, restyling gives me a little creative lift and makes me happy. I'll take it!
