Random Thrifty Finds

I have always like to rummage through
Thrifty Stores, Second Hand Stores,
Antique Stores
Just intrique me. . . they always have.
I could spend hours in my Grandma's basement
Going through boxes of old discarded "stuff".
I have stuff that other people can't understand why I have it. .
(My daughter for one, does not like "old" stuff)
After I have used my creative talents and of course PAINT
And made a thing of beauty, then they are asking
"Where did you get that"? 
(And my daughter wants it)
I thought I would show you just a very small portion
Of the things I have found at the thrift store and re-created.
(My thrift store of choice is Deseret Industries.)

In a few months it will be a year that I launched
Karie's Chic Creations
I have had so much fun doing this blog
And I have met some wonderful bloggers. . .
I have gotten so many ideas and so much inspiration from the
Creative Genius of others, I can't believe the wealth of talent out there.
I started my blog to just showcase some of my crafts,
But soon found that I wanted to showcase other things.
The things I find at the thrift store are so fun to re-create. . .
I will show you more of my creations from the thriftstore.

I have a few more I want to show you  another day.
Hope you will come back to see all the incredible things I have
Found while rummaging in junk thrift stores. . .
