Green Thrifting

I have probably been thrifting in one form or another since I was in my late teens, and that would be over forty years. I had to collect this picture, ( I have a thing about picture frames) since I grew up in Seattle, naturally. I just loved the deep green background with the little bit of green mixed into the gold frame. Just perfect for a green lover.
I am not really crazy about swans but this threesome really appealed to me. I suppose it could have been the color!

This odd form of decoupage really appealed to me as it is rather old. I was able to find another one as well.

I found this apple peeler just yesterday at Value Village. I saw one a few weeks ago and passed it up but I really thought I needed it after all, when I saw another one. I use red and green in my kitchen so I love it there.

And I thought I would share a picture of the cute old fashioned crocheted hot pad on my green wall in the kitchen.


  1. OOOhhh green is my favoritest color!!!
