Yes it is amazing what you can do with second treasures.  I love looking in the thrift shops, my last find was a new leather jacket for $20.  I'm wearing it now, it is perfect.

Hubby and I go to the thrift shops together, only one rule, we have to love it and have a place or use for it.  Or is that two rules?  Wooden boxes are always good.

My bride and I like to thrift.  She does alot of creative sewing and jewelry, she also loves old lamps.  I started picking up boxes and candle holders when I was a teenager.  We revive and resell.

We have a lot of crafty people in Nelson, there is one woman here who does the old type of fabric lampshades, they are beautiful with their long fringes.  She goes under the name of "ShadyLady".  she matches them up with an appropriate old lamp, and the end result is gorgeous!  Boxes and candle holders are always a good find!

Lamp shades are fun.  Fringe, crystals and beads, even alcohol inks can produce some really interesting results, plus, you are recycling.

Last time I decorated the bedroom, I bought new lamps and added red beaded fringe around the plain lampshades.  Hubby said the bedroom looked like a Whore House, I asked him how did he know?
