inspired by this...

i'm so thrilled to see that she has a blog! i was fortunate enough to be at her very first sale ever, several years ago - where i found this wonderful table that warms up our family room:) she doesn't sell online at this time, but she has a wonderful cottage at the detroit lakes, mn flea market. and a wonderful yearly sale event at her showroom in the countryside. i have to tell you this - her sale(s) are usually a mob scene - and she is unfailingly pleasant and helpful.

this candle trough is from her sale

and this old painting was from one of her early sales

i believe she made these pillows out of vintage fabric - oh, how i wish i had 30 more!

and perhaps one of my best loved purchases from patina white: this wonderful typewriter key watch...

i thank you for your inspiration over the past years, beth! and it truly is a small world - i found out about the patina white blog through this crafty girl, whose flashcards are among my favorite etsy purchases:)

Oh, it's so much fun to find people online, isn't it?!

Mary, thank you for stopping by my blog and commenting. To bring you up to date on "Thrifter's Anonymous" - I got as far as sifting through my craft and business stuff in my office and felt satisfied enough with its organization to begin a bit more thrifting. But it was a great, self-imposed dry spell and I was very productive. I totally recommend it!

too bad beth doesn't have an online shop. i guess a table as pretty as yours would be a pretty penny to ship... still! i'm missing out. ;)

I just happened on your blog not sure from where, but I'm glad I did. I love that pretty watch with the type keys. Very clever.
