Hey Macklemore, Can We Go Thrift Shopping?

Thrift store shopping can be really fun, though I admit, at times exhausting. More often than not, I leave a thrift store without finding anything but when I do score, I score pretty big. I enjoy thrift store shopping for both home items as well as clothing because the best part is not knowing what you might find!

Here are two of my favorite thrift store clothing pieces, as well as some thrift store shopping tips!

My Main Squeeze: Homemade Lemon Curd

Spoonful of Homemade Lemon Curd

Summertime for me is all about fruit – fresh, or frozen, or baked, or in cocktails ๐Ÿ˜‰ One of my favorite fruit is lemon. I love the tart when mixed with a little sweetness. My dream is to one day have lemon trees in my backyard. Just the sight of bright lemons make me happy!

To dress up my reed diffusers, I created mini flags out of some of the sticks. A quick trip to Michael’s and an episode of Modern Family was as long as it took to do. (I always watch TV or a have a movie in the background when I do my crafting. Probably stems from my architecture studio days in college!)
