"Patches" -Black Pillows w/Off-White Hand Drawn Designs
When friends came for a visit they'd ask where I bought this and where I bought that. I'd explained that I didn't buy anything but instead received this and that for free. Now, a group of girls truck along the roads to go what I call "hunting". It's a great time hanging out with people you love and scooping up free stuff that is oftentimes sooooooo valuable. And I'm not talking monetarily, I mean something that has value to you for whatever reasons - because it reminds you of something your grandmother had when you were little or because it's vintage and you love vintage stuff. That's the kind of value I'm talking about. Some of my finds include an old, perfect wood stove, an absolutely, wickedly fabulous, sofa from the 60's. (I only know this because an upholsterer friend told me it was from the 60's and it was fabulous - as if I didn't already know the latter), a beautiful mid-century bureau, and more. I will get around to sharing some of these finds in the near future.
