Hi all! Thanks for visiting my blog! Curious about me not in a creepy way? Then read on!
My name is Chelsea and I am a student at the University of Arizona in Tucson, where the weather is hot, but not as hot as Phoenix (where I'm from originally!). I am a graduate student pursuing a degree in Animal Sciences with a focus in Reproductive Physiology, with my ultimate goal of switching to humans to do in vitro fertilization. Right now I work with horses flushing embryos etc. which is a VERY dirty job, in fact, I am pretty sure an equine breeding manager was featured on the Discovery Channel show Dirty Jobs!
Anyways enough about how I am always covered in horse poop, you want to hear about my thrifting adventures! Well, I can't really pinpoint a "it all started when..." so I will just say I remember when my sister got really into vintage clothes and going around to all the different shops with her. I was always a little more interested in the housewares and accessories sections because I could scan them quickly and I didn't have to dig through racks of clothes! I am now a little more patient with clothes, but little is the key word. It isn't uncommon for me to hit up a thrift store and leave after 5 minutes of browsing housewares, accessories and furniture.
I LOVE absolutely LOVE brass things. All kinds, but my very favorite are brass animal statues. I really need more for my brass animal collection because as of the start of this blog, all I have is an elephant! I have lots of other brassy goodness though, some of my favorites being my little hourglass, my Asian-style fan, and my little ring dish with a little birdie perched on the edge!
I also really love to craft and redo some old and tired items. I don't always have a lot of time for crafts, so most of mine are spray-paint quickie little crafts, but they are always fun! I always have ideas brewing, but it is a matter of time and money when they get completed!
