Friday's Find: Juliet Gets an Apron!


Thank God it's thrifty Friday, y'all--I am so glad you stopped by!  Today's feature combines one of my previous thrift store treaures with a recent yard sale find.  Do you remember my charming dress form Juliet? She was 50% off at my favorite thrift store and ever since has cheerfully dressed up my living room corner.  Depending on my whim, she has served as a lamp and even Christmas decor.  When I found this pretty floral Vintage apron at a yard sale and got it home, I knew it would look fabulous on my girl Juliet--who doesn't love to play dress up?!

Since she is adorned with pearls and Vintage earrings year round, all she needed was a lace hankie to tuck in her apron pocket.  I am so smitten with the apron's lovely fabric and ric rack trim and it still has the old Sears Roebuck label at the neck!

For me, this kind of whimsy makes a house a home.  Have fun with your decor and allow your home to tell your story and reflect your own personality!  One of my friends picked up an old bowling pin from an estate sale.  She was drawn to it because her parents used to own a bowling alley.  She got it for a $1 and added to a dresser vignette in her guest bedroom.  Since then, more than once I have seen bowling pins for sale in antique shops for $10-$20.  Her instincts were right on, just as yours will be.

  4. Lovely apron! I have a thing for aprons but won't wear them (don't want to get them dirty...hehehe)
    I feel like you do, every home should have a bit of whimsy and a touch of the owner's personality!
