I've had so much luck thrifting lately...I don't even know where to start. Some things have been perfect as is...and others are going to be tweaked a bit b/f they get used. Here are a few of my newest finds...
*I have recently been selling some of my stuff on a Facebook page (imagine a giant online garage sale). I sold quite a few pieces of my milk glass to a girl who is doing her whole hutch in white...so when I spotted this little gem...I had to send her a pic to see if she would be interested. I have a lot of milk glass...and have seen a lot of it, too. This was a really different piece...and, of course, she was so excited! For only $1.99...it was a steal.
*I first saw the cookie jar of this way adorable set. While I was admiring it...one of the workers @ my favorite Salvation Army said there was a s&p set to go w/ it. Now...this isn't my thing...but a friend of mine's sister really digs the whole 'shroom style...so I picked the set up for only $3.99.
*These 2 pictures do not include anything I bought...but gave me a huge chuckle. I mean...how can there possibly be so many flippin' denim short overalls?!? I was transported back to a simpler time...the year, 1993...it was a lovely journey. :) Who wore these...where did they come from? Next...was a dvd devoted to the Scrabble tourney circuit. I didn't even know there is such a thing. What I did know...is that the hubs and I constantly have what we've dubbed "word wars"...usually involving the definition of a word...or even the question of its actual existence.
*I scored this cute set of sheets (which I promptly washed on the hottest setting...and dried hot too). I will either use them as actual sheets on Miss Addy's bed...or they will be perfect for a scrap wreath.
*These are a few of the beauties I also picked up on this magical thrifting trip. I love, love, love the wreath topiary. I thought I was going to paint it...but all I just popped the purple flowers off...and she was good to go. I added a bit of blue ribbon for the changing vignette on my cabinet...and it is thriftingly perfect. The embroidered picture is probably going to get a coat of paint on the frame...or possibly some yarn wound around it. I was drawn to the cork piece...and when I spied it was a heart...it had to be mine. It will most likely get a bit of white spray paint and go into Miss Addy's room. I score these 3 treasures for only $.99 each...bam!
I'm hoping to get some time to work on my other finds...and find them homes...very soon. Pics to follow.
