Junk on my sofa table

I had good intentions of sharing these photos with you before the Wildhare Vintage Flea, but between painting, cleaning, pricing, prepping, and some sleep, I just wasn't at my computer to put a few words with them.  You've  seen or heard the phrase, It Doesn't Have to be Perfect to be Beautiful, somewhere in the land of blogs, Pinterst, or home decor magazines.  That pretty much sums up my decorating philosophy.  

I played around with my sofa table after the holidays, pulling out both new and old finds.  The globe is the only item we purchased new, and that was years before we even had our son.  Everything else was from a yard sale or thrift shop,etc.
I love the color on this trunk, and it is great storage for DVDs and game remotes.  If you just thought to yourself~" I love that idea", give me a ring, I have 3 trunks currently available, this one is my absolute favorite, although it was a tough decision!  This trunk has faint addresses on it, showing it traveled from New York to California.

This camera is not as old as the other, but I was drawn to keep it with the contrast of the leather, black, and silver metal.  It echoes the silver of the book ends. Speaking of books, they are so great for adding color and an easy way to vary the height of items in a vignette.  Apparently many of you agree, I sold multiple book stacks from my booth last weekend, thank you!

This little pottery piece is not junk at all, I made it at a craft night with my kiddo, and it's a fond memory of when he was a little guy.  It hold bits of sea glass that our little family picked up from the coast during a backpack trip.  This little pot and tumbled glass is more valuable to me than anything else on the table.
Decorate your home with something meaningful to you.

The plate is a thrift store find, stamped USA on the bottom.  Plates can help corral 1-3 small items together, and are a great perch for candles to protect your furniture from becoming too hot when you light them.  This poem fell out of an old book, it's a good read to remind me to let things go sometimes.

Explore ~great word to see each day, don't you think?  I hope to keep doing just that on both a small and large scale. The frame had great detail that stands out even more when painted.

A big thank you to everyone that was able to come out to the Vintage Flea, I had a great time visiting and seeing what you found!  I plan to post some items this week that didn't find a home yet, but also look forward to some 'exploring' time and maybe work in a project ( or 10) that I want to do in my home.  
Have a great week!

New, Vintage & Thrifted

Last week, I posted this on facebook & Instagram #livelygracehome

New, vintage, and thrifted is also how I shop for clothes & like to dress ~ when it comes together.

Here's the breakdown:
The 'Buon Viaggo' t-shirt was a total thrift store score ~ a J Crew brand that appeared to be a sample, but was brand-spanking new.
The black Moda cardigan was also a find at Goodwill.  I wear cardigans a lot, and don't pass up a good deal on the basics.
The 'new' is that grey skirt with little swirlies from LuLaRue that was picked up at the LulaQ Market last November.

On to the vintage!  Vain & Vintage in Pocatello is one of my favorite shops, and where I picked up the 'J' vintage typewriter key pendant by the local jewelry artist, Hipper than Thou.  It's a feel good piece to me, and I wear it often.

And then there is the gifted.  I have sweet friends, and I received this arrow braclet and the mini arrow necklace both as gifts!  
I pulled on some boots and had a fun evening, accompanied by an ever growing young man, at the movies in my thrifted, new, vintage, & gifted duds!

Buon Viaggo! Good trip!
