Latest Goodwill Find

I grew this pumpkin. What, what?
I absolutely love my living room. It’s the perfect stuffy living room that no one ever uses (which isn’t entirely true, but that was the look I was going for. It’s exactly what I wanted, and I love that it looks so put together and neat most of the time.
I’ve been dying to get a couple frames up on the wall for a while, with wedding pictures of Geoff and I. I originally wanted one large frame with two smaller (8×10) frames along side it, but decided against it for several reasons. One of the biggest reasons why I didn’t get anything up until now, however, is that 8×10 frames are expensive! The cheapest, and not very nice looking I could find were $15-$20, and I wasn’t about to spend $40+ on a couple frames. Until I saw these bad boys at my thrift store.
Saying our vows
Love this one of the wedding party!
As an aside, do you know how difficult it is to take a picture of a picture?
Anyway, when I saw these frames for $4.99 each, I knew I’d regret it if I didn’t get them. Normally I like my frames to be around the .99 cent mark, but considering these were a. in near perfect condition b. the 8×10 size I wanted and c. matching, I knew they were coming home with me.
I’d also like to point out that the majority of this room is furnished from Craigslist or Freecycle. The chaire are from Freecycle, the coffee table is from Craigslist, and the end table was also a Craigslist find. The pictures hanging on the frame in the left hand side was a project inspired by a Freecycle frame. Oh, and the awesome orange phone in the first picture? That was inherited from Geoff’s grandmother. He was thrilled when I brought it home. Obviously.
I think it’s a room The Non Consumer Advocate would be proud of, and I definitely am!
