A Brief Blog Profile: Thrifty Decor Chick
by Thomas Hynes
The Thrifty Decor Chick also goes by Sarah. She's a married mom who loves New York City. She also loves decorating her house on the cheap. You get the sense she derives satisfaction from pulling off a $200 project for $20. (Wouldn't you, too?) She recognizes the virtue of Goodwill and the Salvation Army as a means to a fuller, richer and more expressive living space. She started this blog because she believes that 'anyone and everyone should have a home they love, even though they may not have much to spend on it.'
If I can be totally honest here, I'm pretty enamored with the Thrifty Decor Chick. This may seem off-topic, but I love how she has a music player at the bottom of her page,. More specifically, I love that LL Cool J's "Around the Way Girl" is featured there. I also really love how much she loves candy corn. She not only made humongous candy corn pieces out of yarn, but she also made a wreath out of real candy corn!
But enough about wax candies and rappers from the 90s. For the purposes of this blog post, I should also mention that she's pretty talented at design. This post on her new backyard is a pretty good place to begin showcasing her skills. Truthfully, the entire blog is an example of her abilities. As she says, "You can have a lovely home for little money. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise." After reading her blog a little bit, I think she may be right.
