Thriftin’ Time Tuesdays


Back in October 2010, I adopted Ms. Daisy from a Boy Scout Troop in Post Falls, Idaho.  I actually drove her home myself…she drove like a dream!  Before I knew it (one week later) bad weather set in and she was tarped for the winter.

And here we have Décor ala Boy Scouts.  The original interior with a few late 70’s touches.  Should I keep those curtains?
