{Thrift Shop Temptations} I'm Contemplating Wall Space Again

For all of its many faults, our last house had quite a bit of wall space. This house has windows and a huge fireplace and lots of doorways. I love all of that, but it also means that I don't have many big empty places to hang things.

And then I fall in love with ridiculous things like this...

I love still lifes, especially when they've got details like this one. There are so, so many reasons something like this wouldn't look right in my house. The ceilings probably aren't high enough.  My husband would hate it.  Maybe I'll stumble across a smaller version one of  these days. Since posting about The Fairy Tale, I've been seeing  that one everywhere.

Wanting huge things to hang on the wall must run in the family. Back in November, I had to stop my middle son from spending all of his birthday money on this one. I'm not even sure it would have  fit in the van.

I didn't buy a ginormous still life and I also managed to resist these antique school desks.

I keep hearing that between New Year's resolutions and that new Netflix series that the thrift shops will be filling up, but the shelves at my local stores are pretty bare. Are you finding anything good in your neck of the woods?

Things are lean here for thrift stores, except for clothes. I'd have bought the still life without a second's hesitation. Love them.
