Thrifty Thursday-A true collector
My dear friend Berta is a second-hand shopper extraordinaire. Last week I shared a few views of her yard and promised I’d tour the inside of her house as well.
Berta likes color and glass. And what better way to show both off but in a window. This colorful collection sits above the kitchen sink.
The fireplace was closed off years ago (I like the multi-colored brick). I think everything in this shot was bought at a thrift store or yard sale.
I call this the “ladies corner” and the only thing purchased new is the window frame with dried flowers bought at a craft show.
Berta can tell you exactly where each wonderful treasure came from, even where the yard sale was.
And I just love how she displays her treasures.
Even her bathroom window is delightful.
I sure hope to get out to do some thrift shopping soon. What treasures have you discovered? Join in by linking below.
My dear friend Berta is recovering from a shoulder replacement. So if you notice any dust, please know we call it “velvet,” and live with it.
