Here's a question for all you gathering Thrifters.
What do you do with your purchases when you get them home?
Do you immediately put them in the spot that you envisioned them being in? Do they go into the storage area to be dealt with later? Or are you like me?
Most of my purchases will spend about 48 hours (maybe more) on our dining room table. The one you see in a lot of my photos. They will land there after they have been cleaned up (if need be) or else they arrive there right from the bag. We refer to this as the holding area much to my dear Hubby's dismay. This is where he gets to view my treasures and sometimes walk away from shaking his head. Does anybody remember the ceramic-owl-mounted-on-pegboard-that-weighed-nearly-20-pounds?
Yeah. He didn't care for that little "treasure". Just to be clear, I don't know many people who did like it. I know it made many of our friends laugh, though!
Usually things stay in the holding area until I can figure out the perfect spot for them to be in the house. Sometimes they are in the holding area simply because I know I will have to put them away until a later date and I like seeing them there, touching them and thinking about future glittering, if need be.
These little figurines have been in the holding area for 2 weeks.
I LOVE them.
I don't WANT to put them away until Christmas. They make me rawther happy when I see them smirking at me. You can't tell from the photo, because my camera is simply terrible (I am certain my photos would be amazing and highly detailed if I didn't have such a terrible camera) but there is glitter all over their adorable little faces and legs.
I think they are going to find a little spot by our kitchen window and keep them out year round.
And for my Girlfriend Michelle...a close up of the eyes, BOO! How can you even start to find these gorgeous eyes frightening?!
