As for the title, just wanted to call it like it is...I love garage sales, consignment galleries, thrift stores, 2nd hand shops, antique malls, etc. (as mentioned here). Unfortunately for me, the options in the Manchester area are limited but I happened to stop by Sharon Ann's Consignment Gallery in Hooksett yesterday and absolutely fell in love with this beauty:
Upon first glance it may not look like much...but if you look closer you'll see that it's miniature! Not as in doll house but as in perfect-for-32 inch-Genevieve size. It's the most adorable thing. ever. I want it. I need it. I have to have it. BUT there's this stupid budget thing that both Joe and Dave Ramsey keep ramming down my throat so I can't have it right now. But as God is my witness I plan to stalk that consignment store until I can work $99 into the budget OR until it's marked down ($99 is a bit steep if you ask me!). Whichever comes first. Hopefully my patience will pay off like it did this time...because this cute little desk is just dying to be painted pink or bright red or stark white or sunny yellow and screaming for some anthropolgie-esqe knobs. And I am so the one to give it what it wants.
I'm Tiffany, the lady behind Pretty Real. So glad you're here! Take a look around for fun and easy DIYs, pretty parties + entertaining inspiration, and home decor. All on a realistic budget of course. Oh and you might find the occasional tear jerking "mom life" post or embarrassing "before" photo. Feel free to laugh at those. ♥
