Creative Friday: Thrift Shop for the Thrifty

I serendipitously found a thrift store today on my way to pick up cheesecakes for a friend. Peeking my head through the window, I knew I couldn’t pass it by without taking a quick stop in.

That’s when I saw it.

I fell madly in love with an antique bicycle displayed in the store. It was $10, but the money will go to a counseling center so I felt a little less guilty about my purchase.

Since I am a big fan of bicycles and cycling, I knew I had to get it.

Here it is:

Isn’t it cute? Okay maybe not as cute as this. But it’s a close second.

Technically, I didn’t create anything. But I’m thinking this beauty might get a coat of fresh white or aqua paint one day.

Plus, I think it’s so inspiring. Looking at it is bound to inspire me to create.

How about you?Β 

Found anything especially inspiring recently?

      Aw thanks Kelly! I’m embarrassed to say I haven’t heard of Uppercase magazine. But did a quick search and it looks cool. Do they sell it at bookstores? Thanks for the comment by the way. Happy someone else loves it too. =)

    I just found out about Uppercase too but it has given me some cool ideas! I ordered one magazine to see if I liked it from the website. It was great and even came with a letterpresses card inside, very cute πŸ™‚ you mentioned you might paint the little bike! Will you post the before and after pics? I would love to see! πŸ™‚
