Y’all, this week was the best. We started a new Thrifting series and we had the best time. In addition, there were so many great tips from off the Dirt Road this week.
Dirt Road Adventures – Thrifting with the Gals is a recap of the week and some behind the scenes happenings from our first official thrifting adventures. We learned a lot about each other’s thrifting style and we advised each other on purchases! In addition, we encouraged those who couldn’t get out due to the bad weather and most importantly we had so much fun.
Each week we are going to take you along on our Instagram stories and we will have guests joining us from around the country.

Some of our advise (or my advise) LOL
Although we couldn’t go shopping together, don’t worry we were still there to support each other.
First, Ann at Dabbling & Decorating , found this great Apothecary Cabinet and didn’t buy it. Oh my! When I saw it, I encouraged her to go back and get it. Needless to say, it is now in her sunroom!
Kim at Shiplap and Shells found these handblown glasses. We were back and forth about whether they were a good deal or not. I’m sure she regretted asking our advise!!! LOL
One thing we learned, is that prices vary so much from location to location.
Kristen at White Arrows Home shared how much fun a girls weekend can be in her neck of the woods. We need to plan a trip!!!!
That One Great Shop
Stacy at Bricks N Blooms couldn’t get out to thrift, but she shared her favorite shop and I’d love to be able to visit it. I’d love to visit all these locations at some point.
My Latest Find
This is my best deal from last week and my inspiration photo! Do you think I l can pull it off?
Stay tuned for the reveal.

Adventures off the Dirt Road
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 Adventures
Sarah at Thrift Décor Chick – shared this cute Faux Olive Tree that she made for a fraction of the cost in the stores.
My friends Anne & Ann Marie at Simply 2 Moms shared this great DIY Beadboard Drying Rack tutorial. It’s a Ballard Designs Hack and I love it.
A Great Tip Adventure
Well, I had many people concerned that my photo’s would be damaged. Since there is no window in the room, I wasn’t concerned. However, Marian at Miss Mustard Seed shared this post about Scanning Old Documents and Photo’s and I wanted to pass along the information. This is a great way to use those treasured heirlooms and not worry about damage to the originals.
A Yummy Recipe adventure
I love Brownies and Paula at Virginia Sweet Pea shared this yummy Best Homemade Brownie Recipe. I can’t wait to try it.
