Sometimes it takes awhile for a unique little item to make it home with me from the charity shop.
I spied this cross stitched beauty on each of my thrifty visits for nearly 3 months but as I couldn’t think of a use or a place for it I left it for another vintage lover to discover.
Inspiration finally struck during my last thrifting trip and I snapped this big ol’ frame up! (I honestly can’t believe that no one had purchased it – I guess it was destined to be mine)
Any idea what I did with it?

This year give the Gift of Thrift!
It’s time to STOP consuming & giving in to fast fashion and START re-using, refashioning, DIY-ing & supporting sustainable style. The absolute easiest way to begin is to shop second hand, so this holiday season head on down to your local thrift store, charity shop or consignment boutique and lavish your loved ones with truly unique sustainable goodies under the tree!
