Thrift shop finds!

I found a lot of goodies over the last couple days! I got some good deals too. I can’t wait to have a house to decorate with all my goodies. For now I’m basically just hoarding stuff that I probably won’t have room for in my house. I’ll cross that bridge when I get there. I’ll post under each picture about the item.

 

I got this amazing lamp for $2 which was a great buy! I plan to have it in my entry when I have my own place. I’m going to put this on a timer so I have a light on when I come home. I need to find a skinnier kind of long shade for it. I always find awesome lamps, but they never have shades or the shade doesn’t work at all!

A shot of the top of the lamp I got. This is one of my favorite lamps I have.

I got this great pitcher! I could see some Tulips spilling over the edge of it. I paid $2 for this

I got this little picture for $1. I’m not a religious person, but find religion very interesting. I enjoy reading about all religions and beliefs. I really love the style of this.

I got three of these punch cups for 10 cents each. I’m going to make candles with herbs or flower petals and put them in here to sell. They will be so cute because you can see the petals in herbs through the sides.

I got this punch cup also for 10 cents. It just waits a candle inside it.

I love learning new stuff. This looks like an interesting read. Lots of good info in here. I paid $1 for this.

I love gardening and plants. I have a good size collection of Cacti, Succulents, and some Tropical plants. Expect so many gardening posts when I have a place to actually garden! The top one has some good inspiration in it. $2.50 for both of these.

Three new cookbooks I got. I love using tofu in cooking. It’s a great source of protein and can be used in any cuisine I think. Most people who say they don’t like it just don’t know ¬†how to cook it. It’s basically a carrier for the flavors you want to cook with. The other two looked like they had some good recipes in them. All together these were $7.

 

Much love!!!

Blog changes!

I’ve changed some stuff on my blog. The first thing I did was change the name from “DuckyLayne” to “Grow.Eat.Create.Love”. I’ve done this because I’m merging a couple blogs together to have less to keep up with. This will result in more posts here too. The name fits my life too. This has been my Instagram name for awhile now if you want to follow me on there. I’ll be merging this blog, my gardening blog, and art blog together. I’m trying to par down in everything in my life. I’ve got lots of big plans in the near future for this blog. I’m going to also start sharing recipes and DIY tutorials. I love to cook! I’m working on a way to make money while on the road so I can start traveling. I’m going to re do an old school bus to make it into a traveling home for me and my Basset Hound Lucy.

Much love!!!

The quirky lobster

My mom and I stopped by a thrift store on our way to get dog food. We usually don’t go to this one because they never really have anything. The ladies that work there take the good stuff home to their families. I don’t think they are suppose to, but they do. It’s a hospital thrift store, so you would think they wouldn’t be allowed to so more money goes to the hospital. Well we stopped by and I found these burner covers. They are ceramic and have this little lobster on them. They were just too quirky to pass up! $3 for the set. No chips or anything. Just a little dirty. I’m really glad we stopped by and surprised we found anything! I really love them.

Introductions!

Hello mister’s and misterette’s! My name is Jason and this is just a short post about what this blog will be all about. This blog will be about home decor, thrift store finds for my home, and DIY’s. I’m a creative soul and very worldly in my decorating style. That’s what my best friend calls it anyway. I don’t like to stay in one style. I love vintage stuff and weird things that most think “Really?”. I hope you like my blog and don’t hesitate to say if you think something else would look better or and thoughts you might have.

Much love!!!

-Jason-
