My all time favorite thrift store

favorite thrift store

You might already know that I absolutely love thrift shopping. It’s a great feeling to find something unique for just a few bucks. I also think that thrift store finds are making your home more unique and more you. It gives your interior personality! Today I want to share my all time favorite thrift store with you. As you can see it’s a big mess and that is just the way I like it! Sometimes you find real treasures hidden between the junk, and sometimes it’s just junk. But when you find something it’s rarely expensive and it’s always a great feeling to find something between the junk.

DIY – Vintage lace purse

Do you remember the brown leather purses I found in the thrift store? I posted them last week in ‘Latest thrift store finds’. I really love these little purses. I don’t care that they are scratched and torn. It all adds up to the vintage feel. I love bags with character! But I thought I could make them even a little more special. I really wanted to keep the vintage feel, but I wanted to make the bag more unique. What did I do to make that work? I used lace! And some Mod Podge of course..

Hair tutorial – Messy side bun

I love wearing my hair in a messy side bun. It’s easy to do and it will last the whole day. Because the bun is on the side of your head you can see the bun from the front. That’s what I like so much about it. It looks more playful then a regular bun. When you add a flower to it your look is completely finished. But you don’t have to! A lot of the times when I put my hair up like this I’m not putting a flower in it. But for a special occasion, let’s say a wedding for example, a flower would bring this easy side bun to a whole different level!

DIY – Tattoo tights

I love the look of tattoos and someday I would really like to have one. I think the old fashioned swallows are absolutely gorgeous. Besides that birds represent for me freedom. The freedom to do the things I really want to do. For now I want something just a little less ‘forever’. It’s a little bit like test driving a tattoo. Of course you could use temporary tattoos or you could just draw something on your body. But why not draw something on your tights? This way you can ‘wear’ your tattoo many times without it fading away!

DIY – Picture Easter eggs

Yesterday Kara Nielsen asked me if it was possible to do my decoupage Easter eggs with pictures of her grandchildren. She asked for some advise on how to do this. I think it’s a great idea to decoupage eggs with pictures. That’s why I decided to make a tutorial on how to do this. I will show you exactly how to print on napkins and make these eggs with your own pictures or prints! I’m not going into the details on how to blow out the eggs. If you want to know how to do that you can read my ‘DIY – Decoupage Easter eggs’ post.
