Decor & Design from Pickin' Cool Finds

I'm a gal who hates to shop.
And the shoppin' season is upon us.
So will I shop the big stores? No, thank you. 

I like to pick...give me a barn or shed, give me an old shop, or give me an auction.
That's where I like to spend my time.

I believe in less is more and what I do have is from very frugal finds that have a story.

I'll be thinking of those out there fighting the crowds in the big stores this weekend while 
I wander out myself to find an old shop or two so I can have a pickin' cool time. Good luck to us all.

Have a good Monday morning!

I will not be out shopping for black Friday. I do not like the crowds at Christmas time. I love people, just not at stores. i like to make some of my own gifts, so that will keep me home more. Have fun out at the auctions and the old shops! Sounds wonderful!

Ditto! Me too, I stay far, far away from that insanity.

I agree with you on this one! My husband heard on the news that people started lining up last week for Black Friday! So crazy.

I knew I liked you for a reason - we are birds of a feather.. I despise shopping too. Give me a barn and I'm all in!

Happy Thanksgiving my friend.
