a day in the life: thrifting, styling and photo editing


What you choose to do with your precious days off really reflect the person you are, don't they? Yesterday, I went out thrifting. There is nothing like poking around in a dusty shop full of vintage loveliness to make my heart sing! I haven't been out in ages, and I found a bunch of small things for the house as well as some pieces for a friend who is moving and needs a bit of staging done prior to listing her home.

Our bedroom is in flux mode right now - on the weekend we moved our bed frame to the guest room, because I am going to make a new upholstered version - pics will follow :) I'm planning a to incorperate "dressing cabinet", to store and display my favourite accessories, and so need a few bits for jewelry display. Enter this charming little tiered - tray brass and laquer number - perfect for the jewelry I'm wearing everyday. As you can see, it's already settled into it's new home...







I bought it, brought it home, and immediately cleaned it, styled up this little display and took photos!
Please tell me I'm not the only one :)  x am



Pin It Now!

I love to poke around on my days off too.

That is such a pretty tray.

Fabulous styling. I do that too and about a week later decided its all wrong and go hunting in my house for other items to group with my find, and do it all over again.

Oh I would have done the same thing!

Love the tray. I'm reorganizing our bedroom closet and hope to pull together something similar.

What a great idea. The tiered tray is not only functional but sculptural and it is art all by itself. Great idea. I love those laquered boxes too!

Absolutely my favourite way to spend a day! Dubai doesn't have much in the way of thrifting so I'm dying to get back to Canada this summer and scope out the shops. Love your tiered tray :)
