Yesterday, after my massage work at Hospice, I stopped by a local thrift store and found this book. It's Woodstock Handmade Houses, and is similar to 2 other books I have, which inspired me throughout the building of my house. Certainly, some of the dwellings are pretty funky, but some are beautiful, soulful homes, like the one pictured here. I just searched a link for this book, & am astonished to find they've got my 1974 paperback version listed for $45 and up. Guess my $1.50 buy was a pretty good deal. I've been inspired by The Thrifty Chicks to keep an eye out for perfect, thoughtful thrifted gifts throughout the year, & did find one for a loved one that I'll put away. I did well last year, making a number of presents, as well as giving a couple thrifted gifts, but would like to do even better this year. I'd say its a good beginning.
