Happy Thursday Glamour Girls!
Not only is there only one day left until the weekend, but I am giddy with excitement about this week’s find. Actually, they’re three, and maybe that’s why I’m so anxious.
Let me begin by saying I’ve never been one to shop at thrift stores outside of looking for furniture to restore or refinish. And before you get your panties in a bunch, let me explain. First, I hate finding the perfect something, only for it to be the last one and not my size. At the thrift store, more often than not, every thing is the last one not my size. A fanatic like me cannot accept that. I only buy what I love, so if I’ve committed to buying it, I love it; can’t live without it. And so I will spend at least a week scouring the internet in an attempt to find that item. It’s a sad cycle, let me tell you. I’m still stalking the internet for a purse I missed out on in a flash sale at least two years ago.
I’m also a very focused shopper. I only shop when I need or want something specific. Now I might look for this item in several stores, but I’m not one that goes into every store, looking at every thing. I also hate stores that aren’t organized; well that aren’t organized in a way that my brain comprehends. If I’m shopping for a white blouse, there should be a white blouse section or at least a white shirt section containing blouses. If an outfit is on a mannequin, that clothing should be near that mannequin, not on the other side of the store. If it causes my mind to think too hard, I avoid the store altogether regardless of it’s in the mall or my local Goodwill.
Lastly, it never really occurred to me to look for anything besides furniture or clothes. And then I started reading blogs and saw other bloggers showcasing their finds . . . rugs, pillows, knick-knacks. And these were not your grandmother’s knick-knacks, no, these were things you’d actually want to display. Now granted, their scores come from a variety of places and not just thrift stores, as do mine, but the notion I could find something awesome at the thrift store was eye-opening. And so, I began to peruse the entire store, not just the furniture section. I’d look at all the trinkets, books . . . everything. And this week, I found my something.
Meet the Weyward Sisters
I recalled that in Macbeth there were three witches, also known as the weyward sisters and of course it’s the perfect name! What an uncanny coincidence.
As soon as I saw the first print, I loved it, and being the person that hates buying one of anything, finding there were three prints made me extremely happy.
Meet the Orange Sista
Loving her fishnets and the poufy dress.
Meet the Navy Sista
That arm reminds me of a dancer, and even KJ asked if she was a ballerina.
Meet the Turquoise Sista
Definitely my favorite, she seems to be standing on top of the world.
I took the prints out of the frames hoping to find information on the artist, but unfortunately found nothing. I have no idea where they will go, but I’m changing the frames and mat for sure. A fashion gallery wall in my closet isn’t a bad idea, but I was also thinking they would look nice either on the wall leading up to the girls’ rooms or in their hallway . . . we’ll see.
Well, I hope you enjoyed my find half as much as I did and that it inspires you to go out and find your own something.
