Aunt Pam and I decided to leave early for Liz’s Bachelorette Party in Hilton Head, we wanted time to decorate the condo and shop prior to the bride’s arrival.

We spent most of the day filling my small SUV with vintage bottles, trinkets and glassware from area thrift stores.  (Who knew Hilton Head had that many thrift stores?!)  Then we came across a deal we simply could not pass up.  Two antique mahogany chairs for $15 a piece!!!  (Let it be known that Pam is the good luck charm here, as she is a magnet for fabulous steals)  We told the employees at the thrift store that we’d take 2 for $20 if they could find a way to fit them into our already overflowing vehicle.  There is such a high that comes from finding a quality treasure that just needs a little love to be brought back to life.

DIY antique chair recover

I spent all of 30 minutes recovering it with a 1/2 yard of fabric. ($3.50)  It’s a super easy DIY project, all you need are scissors, a screwdriver, and a staple gun.

Antique Chair Recover Butterfly Pillow

My best friend Leslie sent me this adorable throw pillow from Nordstrom Rack.  I love how the wings wrap around the pillow, and even though you can’t see it, it ties in the blue from my living room.

Bride to be in Hilton Head

Oh and how was that Bachelorette party you might ask?  FABULOUS!  (but I’m only sharing one pic!)  We had quite the story to tell the girls when they arrived…and plenty of money left over from our thrifty shopping adventure to spend on fruity drinks by the beach.

 

 

Can you feel it?

Christmas that is!  Here’s one the inks from last year…revamped for their 2008 Christmas card.  Don’t forget to commission your custom pen & ink drawing now before the list gets too long and my fingers have arthritis!  Best part?  They’re on sale for $200, but that won’t last long!
