Thrifty Thursday: inexpensive art.

I haven't really done much thrift shopping in the past few months. It seems that this month has been major thrift shop time!

Usually I'm looking for things to revamp, craft supplies and fun decor items. Lately, I've been wanting more art around the house. I love rooms that have tons of collected pieces. They feel so homey and cozy! Here are a few spaces that I think feel unique and happy.

I need a bigger car aka I ruined our car aka thrift shop find!

I hope everyone had a great Valentine's Day! We had zero plans except going to bed incredibly early and getting more than a few hours of sleep. We got back from a whirlwind trip to Vegas on Wednesday. We went to see some people we kinda like... okay, we love them! They're the only reason we'd drive all that gosh darn way!

We have this list of things to do in Vegas that we do every time we visit. On the list is pick up new UNLV swag for Hubs (his alma mater), eat at yummy restaurants, hit up the thrift shops and the outdoor swap meet.

I gotta say, the outdoor swap meet is totally sad now. It used to be about digging through people's random stuff. Now there is so much "business" which is sad. I do, however, enjoy dragging Hubs kicking and screaming taking Hubs on a magical adventure of thrift shops.

Every time we go somewhere, I always buy something big. I can't help it! For some reason, I still believe our car is like Mary Poppins' carpet bag. It seems like you can fit an entire bedroom set in that sucker.

So when I saw this adorable end table at my favorite Savers, neither of us believed it would be too big for our car. Remember I brought home that awesome avocado chair in my car. I can fit anything in there! We had to put the front seat down flat, then slide it through the front door to the backseat. I still scraped the roof of the car though. There's a lovely little battle scar now. Sorry, Hubs!
