{The Magpie} 
Well hi there. I'm Britt. 

I'm a 27 year old pediatric therapist with my Masters in rehabilitation therapy in Austin, Texas. I'm a proud fur mama to 2 dogs and 2 cats and am married to Micah, the Stud Muffin of this blog. We were married in May of 2011 and you can find our story in the 'lurve' tab. I'm a fan of Irish mob/Boston movies, bubble tea, rock climbing, road trips and spending copious hours in thrift stores. I'm a sucker for mid-century modern decor, old homes and the more color, the better. Floral prints and stripes rock my often mismatched socks off, and I count days that I do my hair and makeup good ones.

{About The Blog}

The magpie is a not so pretty bird that loves to collect pretty things. It spends time searching for little bits and pieces most people wouldn't look twice at to fill its nest. My nest happens to be my closet, and this blog is about my quest to take items that don't cost an arm and a leg and put them together in an effort to still look presentable.

Something about a good sale, discount or coupon warms my heart.
 I love watching for big sales, finding stores with inexpensive (read: $35 and under for an item) regular prices. It's like crack for me to find a semi-expensive piece for cheap on the cheap.

And then I discovered thrifting. There is a certain high that accompanies buying formerly "expensive" (read: over $35) clothing for pennies on the dollar. Nothing feels better than getting a compliment for your $30 outfit. 

Plus, its fun to play with clothes, who are we kidding here.
And thus, the Magpie was "hatched".
