Simple Pleasure for Twenty Bucks

BB2784BF-02B6-4D46-86E2-71702AD4DDA1I had the pleasure of spending a few hours at the Long Beach Flea Market last weekend. If you saw my Instagram Stories then you were able to join me for part of my adventure! I can’t even begin to tell you how much I enjoy shopping at these local flea markets. The merchandise is amazing and the bargains are definitely there!

When I get home from the swap meet I rarely unload my car right away. Instead, I like to contemplate my purchases (and see if I can remember what I bought!). Then I start unloading and wandering around my house looking for the perfect spot for my new finds.

I have been approached recently by a few of my friends who want to hire me to help them decorate their homes. So, if I see something really great (and inexpensive) then maybe it’s ok to buy a few things they might want too. Right?

Makes sense to me.

I have had three of my abstract paintings (in the wrong color palette!) hanging in this area and for months and have unsuccessfully been trying to find the time to paint new farmhouse paintings. So I grabbed my art hanging kit and within ten minutes my entryway looked complete. The screens look fabulous.


A simple pleasure for twenty bucks.

I know what you are thinking. My title may sound a bit inappropriate when taken out of context.  But you know what I mean.
