Joyful Spaces

Hello Fellow Thrifters and Friends,

   Welcome to a new chapter of Joyful Treasure Hunting called "Joyful Spaces" I am going feature homes that I love and visit. There are some homes that you just love to visit, and I want to share those lovely spaces with you all. The first home I am featuring is very close to my heart because I grew up in this lovely home. I am featuring the home of my mom.

Come and join me on a tour of this lovely home

This is a lovely nook in my moms house. My parents have gone to garage sales and thrift stores since when they were first married. They taught me about bargaining and finding wonderful treasures. Most of moms house is decorated with thrifted treasures. 

She paid $25.00 for this lovely yellow striped chair and $15.00 for the dresser. 

I just love this cross stich. It has been hung up in my moms house for as long as I can remember. It is so special. 

Here is one of my mothers many beautiful hutches filled with vintage goodness. This hutch is my favorite because it is filled with Pyrex and Fiesta Ware.

She has found all of these dishes at thrift stores, garage sales, or via craigslist. 

The Dining room

The Kitchen

The family room

The furry dog in the middle of the floor is Jake.

I learned about delicate details from my mom, which is why my house has a lot of the same details. 

And finally one last hutch (but not the last one in the house)

I hoped you felt welcomed, and enjoyed a tour of a lovely home.

  1. That is such a lovely home. I collected Fiesta, but I gave it and the white Hoosier I stored it in to my son when we moved. I also cross-stitched that same picture when my children were small. I gave it to my daughter when she became a mother. Thanks for sharing this glimpse into your family home.

  2. A lovely tour- than you! I feel all warm and cozy now. ♥

  3. Your mom has really scored in her thrifting. It all looks lovely and very warm and homey.

  4. Thank you so much for the tour of this beautiful home!! Your mothers home is so warm and inviting. I love all the warm colors she uses!

  5. Thank you Rachael. I am honored to have our home be the subject of your first "Joyful Home" post. It's the wonderful people family....that make our house a home, but I sure like my stuff :) And just to let those who follow your blog know - Rachael has been joyful since the day she was born.
