This JCREW “baby” corduroy top is simple, comfortable yet perfect for everyday style!

Found at a Goodwill Thrift Store for only $5.99, just a fraction of the original price.

The leather belt is worn almost daily.

The Banana Republic rainboots are a bit more than I normally spend but considering they had not only the cool equestrian style but also the original price tag of $99 …. that justified the $19.99 price tag!


  • Red JCREW Cordoroy Top   (Goodwill) ……………. $5.99
  • Leather Belt  (Goodwill)  …………………..   $2.99
  • Banana Republic Rubber Boots  (Goodwill)    …………..   $19.99

That Old Thing gets Repurposed


This leopard piece of fabric has been in a closet for over 15 years! Added some heavy bouillon fringe and WOW!!!


This leopard scrap of fabric has been with me for over 15 years!  I found it in a clearance bin for about $5.   It is a very heavy cotton, almost like denim, perfect to cover an ottoman or part of a chair …. I just never found an item to recover!   So this has been in a box in the closet, waiting for a purpose.   It has lived both in Oregon and in Texas the past 10 years. This year while spring cleaning the closet, I decided to do something with it or get rid of it!

My mom added this gorgeous, heavy bouillon fringe and I am in LOVE with this table topper!!!   I am quite happy that I stuck with that old thing all these years!


I love how this fabric drapes off the of the table!


BEFORE: Black Leather Table Runner


The Candlesticks are from a Thrift Store. They were bright white and I painted them a flat gold and then aged them by rubbing a dark brown paint into the crevices.

I recently came upon a huge sale at a local thrift store … EVERY SHIRT IN THE ENTIRE STORE ONLY $1.00!!!

My girls like to wear men’s shirts also but I gave him first choice being the men’s sections is about 1/5 the size of women’s clothing in any Thrift Store.
