Reuse & Purpose: Knock on Wood

I always seem to be drawn to the windows of Anthropologie on Fifth Avenue for the way they demonstrate how to take discarded objects and turn them into visual delights.

These frames filled with chunks of wooden molding and pieces of colored boards have been reunited to create textural wall screens that could be used as room dividers, light diffusers or even hanging pieces of art.

Always Frugal, Always Fabulous,

The Elegant Thrifter


  1. You can't help but gravitate towards anthropologie's artsy displays. They always give me ideas for re-purposing, and setting up displays in my own tiny sliver of retail space.

    Why American men should boycott American women

    I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

    American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

    This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.
