Dirt Road Adventures – My Thrift Finds

Welcome to another week of Dirt Road Adventures!

Dirt Road Adventures, is a look back at what’s been happening this week at the end of the our Dirt Road! In addition, I love sharing all the creative things my friends have been doing off the Dirt Road.

This is a look back at all my adventures this past week.

Y’all I’m still working on cleaning and organizing my workshop. It feels like an endless task. At least most everything has been moved out.

Although it was a fun, busy week, I still managed to find a few thrift store items to share with you this week.

My Best Find

A new addition to my vintage office supplies is this early 1900’s Postage Scale. Can you believe I found it in a thrift store? It will soon be seen on my desk for sure.

It’s a Green Dirt Road Adventure!!

These green enamelware containers were a recent Thrift Store Find and this week I found a use for them as indoor planters. Stay tuned for all the exciting details of how I used them.

For some reason, I’m especially drawn to green these days and this week I was lucky to find this chippy green Printer Letter Press Drawer and vintage bowl!

Overall, it was a fun week of thrifting.

Blog Shares from Last Week

Next, my friends and I began our new Monthly Supper Club series by Hosting a Galentines Brunch.

I shared some tips on how to set a Brunch Table for Galentines by using Vintage items and DIY projects.

Then we followed that up with our actual menu and recipes for the Galentine’s Brunch.

Why Didn’t I Think of That?

Each week, there are so many wonderful blog posts, and I’m sharing some of my favorites with you today.

There are so many creative ideas, and I’m always asking myself, “Why didn’t I think of that”? LOL

A DIY Adventure

I saw my friend Niky at House on Silverado shared this reclaimed wood project using vintage buttons. So cute and cost effective.
