I have heard of finding big name brands at thrift stores, but for the most part I've never been so lucky. On the way to the checkout lane, I happened to look through a cart that had clothing that hadn't been distributed to their correct locations yet. I actually looked once and didn't see anything. I went to the other side and was looking at something else on some other rack, then I happened to glance at the first rack again and I saw this pattern.

I pulled the item out of where it was hiding {it had to be hiding because I didn't see it at first!} and thought, wow...

Then I looked at the size and noticed the tag...

Juicy Couture?!?!?! Are you kidding me??? Snatch!!! It was $6.00...but it was also half off do the math.

So ummm yeah...score!

Thrifty Find

To continue through my week, yesterday I went on a hunt for more items. My grandma knows when to shop and where, because yesterday was another 50% off day at a thrift store! I happened to find some great items yesterday, one being this vase. Okay, I don't know if it was originally a vase or not, but that's what we're going to use it as. I don't know what this is made out of, but it's got a little weight behind it, so that's a good sign.

I love that it is shiny and white {especially because of the bleach bath it got last night}, and it will fit in nicely with our living room colors {that we are still deciding on...inspiration board coming soon...}.

I also enjoy the details of this piece. The scalloped edges...

...and the deep ridges...
...but one of my favorite aspects? The price. $1.35

Lighting Update

I hope your week is going well! Mine has been productive to say the least. It has been full of cleaning/reorganizing, shopping and chilling. For starters, I went to a few thrift stores with my grandma and found a few gems.

You may recall the mini lamp shades that I purchased for 5 bucks to put on the chandelier in the dining room. If not, here's a picture~

Well I wasn't looking for a replacement, but I happened to run across a new pair, and since it was half off Monday, I got the set for 2 bucks!

I enjoyed the first shades, but this set is more me. I love the clean look of it, and the color and texture matches nicely with the chairs. It also doesn't look as traditional, which I love.

Whadaya think?

Liberty Belle

Mother's Day is almost here, and I'm just about done packaging card orders. Now that it's spring {AKA wedding season}, I plan to write wedding related posts more often. I haven't posted a wedding inspiration board lately, so I thought I would post this board that I finished a while back {via Polyvore}. I absolutely LOVE this color scheme. An invitation to match this scheme is coming soon...
