How I Have Used My Thrift Store Finds

Recently, while editing pictures, I realized that most of my photography props are Goodwill and garage sale finds. Most of these have been shown here on the blog at one time or another.

A brown picnic basket found at Goodwill. No painting, just add a precious newborn and a barn gate.

This little stool has been painted twice and I'm sure it will get many more coats of paint. Check out the before here. Huge difference from the early nineties fabric and paint.

Sweet baby in a basket. Check out the basket before a creamy coat of white paint here.

When not in use for photo shoots, this basket is often filled (or partly filled) with towels in my bathroom. Other times it holds books or magazines.

Oh and I used the stool above as a prop for sweet Annsley. This stool was a scary laminate brown table in its previous life. See here.

Love putting my finds to good use. Now to find a great place for the new Goodwill baskets that I brought home today.

A motivating discussion is definitely worth comment.
I do believe that you should write more about this subject, it may not be a taboo
matter but usually folks don't talk about such issues. To the next! Kind regards!!

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is required to get setup? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would
cost a pretty penny? I'm not very internet smart so I'm
not 100% sure. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
