Trying Something New

Hi My Fellow Chickadees,

Recently we moved into our “downsize” home.  I still am moving slow on getting things the way I want them.  The wall paint will come when the school year ends (I am teacher assistant). Until then I am getting the wall decor started and I have always wanted to display the things I love. IMG_6341

I love history and I love vintage plates.  This is my antique tobacco drying rack which dates back about 90+ years.  I wanted to incorporate it in our new home.  Another of my loves is vintage hand painted plates.  IMG_6342

Using these two loves together popped into my head just two days ago and I thought…why not!  Some of the plates pictured here are not vintage but it gives you an idea of how I am Trying Something New.  With this idea I can add plates as my collection grows.  The thing you have to remember is that the only critic that counts is you! My one critique on this is that my paint on the walls isn’t done yet-it will look so much better when that is done.  lol

Be adventurous and Try Something New!

Happy New Year 2018!

I can hardly believe that we are in the year 2018!  It is time for some NEW all the way around.  I have recently moved into a NEW home & a NEW sized work space.  I LOVE it, yes it is going to take some organization, but I am already painting two NEW pieces.

The year 2017 brought a NEW booth at Southern Attic, a  NEW job with Autistic Children & NEW surroundings.   I am excited to see the NEW days of 2018 and what they will bring!

Be sure to let me know what hot NEW item you can’t live without, I’ll start the search.  In the mean time-tell me what NEW colors you want to see in 2018.  As always I want to bring you pieces that will complete your Thrifty Chickadee nest.

NEW 2018 goals for Thrifty Chickadee: Bring you some wonderful new pieces.   Incorporate a line in my booths that will enable me to use a portion of the proceeds to support Autism in some way  (Watch for those special tags).  Start a NEW workshop Saturday every quarter to teach a paint/craft class.  Find NEW opportunities to reach others about shopping local.

Do you have a NEW goal to change the look of your nest?  What are your 2018 design goals?  If you don’t know where to start, message us and we will be happy to help you get the ball rolling.  Maybe you have a piece at home that will start the feathers flapping.

Happy NEW Years to you all and may 2018 be your best year ever!  All my happiness & joy to you-may your wings take you to high places in 2018!
