Fabulous & Frugal Fun: Bright Eyed and Bushy Tailed!

Whew! What a difference a great night of sleep makes! (I slept until 9:30 this morning, and I NEVER do that!)

Last night's Bastille Day blowout at Austin's Uptown Modern hosted by LeAnn Stephenson, The Vintage Laundress, was one of the most amazing nights on my book tour. She went all out with delicious snacks, and created a guest list of wonderful people to celebrate The Find: The Housing Works Book of Decorating With Thrift Shop Treasures, Flea Market Objects, and Vintage Details.

Here's a snap of me with LeAnn and Jean Heath, who so graciously opened the doors to her fantastic Uptown Modern, an Austin emporium for amazing mid-century finds, for our get-together. What makes this photo even more special is that it was taken by LeAnn's incredibly talented daughter, Olivia.

Like mother like daughter!

Always Frugal, Always Fabulous,

The Elegant Thrifter


  1. It was certainly nice to meet you last night - and to get a signed copy of your book. I can't wait to dig in - to sit in my reading chair with a cup of coffee and your book. (: (just have to get through work first!!!)

  2. You all look FABULOUS! Wonderfully refreshed. I was pretending I was there too:)

    So...guess where we are heading on our little family vacation?
    Kansas City.
    Guess where we are staying?
    Independence, Missouri.

    We were there a few times before...the last time being 2 years ago when Bud decided to jump off the hotel room bed and opened his head! The emergency room people were wonderful. Goodness.

    Anyway...going to need some places to shop! And directions to them!


  3. Stan, me and my grateful heart are so honored to have had the opportunity to meet you and be part of promoting you and your fantastic book! Thanks for coming to Austin - consider yourself adored!
