JULIA


Finally, something thrifty! Thrifting has been pretty dismal lately. And I've been busy with a new gig. I'm working with a few creative and dynamic people who are super passionate about plants. And that has inspired me to make this little green alter to worship Julia, the goddess of thrifty florals. Found her kicking back in a corner and was immediately captivated by her lovely colors. She was born in Finland by Tampella in 1978. Now, bow down to her and then, rub her clover belly for good luck!

  11. Julia is just lovely!

    Hey Laura, I recently went to an AMAZING antique mall in NE Portland. It wasn't all foofoo expensive antiques, but some really affordable awesome thrifty treasures (like old fiestaware pitchers for 8 bucks). The shop was called Moticello Antiques, definitely worth a tour if you're in the area. Also, I hear City Liquidators in Portland is reeeeeally fun.

  12. @ Vicki Nice! Thanks for sharing some of that. Lara, hope that helps a little. Also, what I like to do is, if you have an iPhone, Yelp search the closest thrifts to you. I do that everywhere I go.

  15. Please come and decorate the house. Please. I can't open another box, not be able to decide on anything, cram it somewhere and then kick the empty cardboard down the stairs and drag it out front after flattening it in a rage. Maddening. And this planty post is GORGEOUS. Next on my list is LOTS OF GREENERY. Er...after I pull myself free of this mountain of cardboard.

    Seriously, come decorate my shit.
