Someone recently asked me where they should go to get knick knacks for their house. Is that even a question?? Knick knacks = thrift stores. Yeah there are knick knacks other places, but thrift stores are filled with them. I mean just look at those great treasures I have thrifted. Perfect knick knacks for decorating.
Here is the happenings in my life. I moved from Provo to Salt Lake a couple months back, for a job. I was offered the job, but had to go through all the formalities. And there were a lot of formalities including an investigation on Lauren’s entire life and polygraph testing. It has taken the whole summer, but I was finally deemed clean and appropriate and I am starting my new job the 18th of August. WAHOO! But what did I do while I waited to be deemed cleaned? Ha well Lauren had to find other sources of income. It took 3 different jobs to provide a suitable income. What job was so worth the wait? I can’t actually tell you because it is confidential. Oh just jokes..I am working for the Sandy Police Department as a social worker. This is very exciting in my world and just thought it was about time to share.
But back to my beautifully, thrifted, home decorating. Since the move I have been trying to get my spaces up to par. It has taken me the whole summer, but I am getting there one step at a time. I recently finished this space and was so so so overjoyed. I have an awesome rock next to the buffalo that I did not label. That rock was actually found in the mountains by my family and given to me. Yes we are cool like that……aka rock hunters. Also I did not picture my entire book case, but in case you were wondering, yes all my books are backwards. This gives it a uniform, but still textured look. I wanted most of the color to come from the top of the book shelf, so that is why I tried to mute the books.
Stayed tuned..next week I am going to show my DIY weavings…..I am addicted.
