A home full of treasures

By now you may know about my love of hunting for treasures at garage sales, the markets and *ahem* the roadside. There is some part of me that is drawn to these discarded or unwanted pieces and if we had a home big enough I would probably collect more.

When I came across Galadriel's photos of her Kansas City home on Flickr, what appealed to me the most was that it was decorated with pieces as she says were 'either thrifted, second-hand, given to us, or handmade'. She has created a family home that is not only beautiful but also creative, budget-friendly and full of treasures.

Horse canvas was a garage sale bargain at $10!

Chocolate walls in the dining room replace the three different prints of wallpaper that used to cover the walls. Shiny triple layered wallpaper was also removed in the kitchen and the brown kitchen replaced with this classic, simple white kitchen.

Daughter Iso's room 'full of the past and present'. The kitchen set is handmade and the artwork hanging above the bed and the kitchen sink are also garage sale finds bought for only $1 each!

The quilt on the bed was created by great grandma Elo and behind the hanging light are flowers Galadriel wore on her wedding day.

Isn't it lovely?

(PS: Horse canvas owned by Galadriel not me - I wish!! Sorry for the confusion!)
