Thrift Porn: A Cozy Thrifty Home

Who's ready for a weekend of thrifting, yard sale hopping, and searching for thrifted deal and treasures? Got your thrift lists ready? Here's a bit of healthy Thrift Porn to get you ready for a weekend of thrift fun.

 Betty Jo Designs' Flickr Photostream! (Initially typed as Betty Ho Designs' Flickr Photostream, oh, you saucy thrift arousing link, you!)

I love the eclectic mix of fabrics and objects, all lovely. But what's really got me breathing hot and heavy for thrift fun is her Flickr Photostream.

So inviting and retro fun and filled with stimulation, yet not cluttered. This is a space that inspires thirft.

I love how it's warm, inviting, and not overhwleming for a space with so many objects. A keen eye for balance is evident.

My favorite element of the kitchen is the Spanish style night time serenade painting high on the wall. The green cabinets and orange back splash are a nice touch though, very 70s while reminding me of my family's houses in Puerto Rico.


She has one of the most warm, inviting, deliciously thrift ecclectic abodes I've ever seen!

Betty Jo Designs are available on Etsy and Bigcartel. Check out her beautiful artwork! This certainly inspires me to make more art and get to work sewing some curtains for my apartment.

Footnote: I made a new twitter account @thriftcore. I maintain six different corporate accounts updating with industry news throughout the day, so I figured it wouldn't hurt to maintain a twitter account dedicated to thrift news as well. I'll update with industry news, thrift inspiration, thrifting blog posts, internet coupons and deals, and general thrift inspiration. Do Follow if you desire.

  1. Sorry, to me it just looks like a lot of crap to dust.

  2. I can definitely see that too- but the pictures make me feel less guilty about my clutter. And my irresistible desire to acquire MORE clutter.

  3. I love it...
    A house like this feels like a home...
    One where I would want to sit and chat and have lots of tea and biscuits...
    and spend many hours just looking at all the amazing thrifty finds...
    well done Betty Jo...

  4. Love this house. If I had a house cleaner then I'd for sure have lots of these touches in my house. But I hate to dust!!! Hate it. I can see how I have made compromises, function and order for aesthetics.

    Still, it looks like an inspired person lives here. That's what appeals to me.
