A pair of 7buck thrift shop boots…

and a few stolen hours at my studio.

Hello Nascar Fans

I found this incredibly cool tablecloth or bedspread? at a thrift shop last week. It is probably going to become a skirt or a bag for me. I was so drawn to the color and the kitschiness of the fabric. However, if you or someone you know must acquire this, let me know and I won’t start cutting into it just yet. Happy Friday!

Thrift shop transformation on a rainy day.

I am not a very good seamstress, but I have a lot of ideas. Today at ST. Teresa’s shop in Sagamore, Mass I found this linen jacket. Good lines. Too big. Not very interesting. I thought for $3 it had some potential. I like things deconstructed. And I like Japanese inspired, deconstructed design. I decided to do some pleating and make the jacket fit me better. I want to wrinkle it up a lot more, it washed up way less wrinkled than I intended. What I am most pleased with is the transformation. If something isn’t working. Think about it. Take necessary steps. Change it. This applies to lots of aspects of our lives not just $3 thrift shop jackets. Go forth and transform!
