Well, today is Thursday and as we go about our normal routine I need to post to two of my favorite parties....Leigh @ Tales from Bloggerittaville for Thrifty Thursday and Suzanne @ Coloradolady for Vintage Thingies Thursday. This is one of my favorite blog days to see what thrifty, vintage finds are being found.
I have to admit that my guest room makeover did not get finished before I went back to work on Monday, but it is slowly coming along. I'm trying to come up with some accessories for the room and I found some vintage plates at various thrift stores that I thought would be a fun addition. My family and I have moved several times in the past years. We have lived in Ohio, Wisconsin, Minnesota, California and now Missouri. Since I wanted this room to have a vintage, travel theme I thought I would add some souvenir State plates that represent each state that we have lived in to an area of the bedroom.
Here's a picture of the area next to the closet where the plates will hang. I would have tried to hang them before posting but I can't find my Minnesota plate at the moment (a sure sign of having too much stuff!).
Here are a few pictures of the plates:
These are kind of kitschy but I think it's a fun way to remember all of the wonderful areas we have lived. As soon as I find my Minnesota plate I will be hanging these in the room.
Hop on over the Leigh and Suzanne's blogs to check out other thrifty and/or vintage finds.
