In My Library Bag: The Salvage Sisters
The Salvage Sisters' Guide To Finding Style In The Street And Inspiration In the Attic: quite a mouthful, but fun to read. Kathleen Hackett and Mary Ann Young come from a big family of alley-pickers, which they marry with professional backgrounds in design. The results are interesting. From a cast iron mold-turned-doorknocker to "slipcovering" a pair of chairs with matching fleece throws, the sisters add funky touches to yard sale finds. This book should spark your creativity even if you don't love their style. Find it at your library; it's a quick read instead of a reference book.
