Thrift Store Diving

Anybody who really knows me, knows that I love a good bargain. Over the holiday weekend I went to one of my favorite thrift stores in L.A. called Jet Rag for their $1 sale. I absolutely loved it!!!! I found some really great stuff that I hope to transform into something better. Check out the photos to see the animal in her natural habitat!!!
