Hi everyone! I haven’t shared any of my thriftstore finds in a while so I thought I’d show you a few. I think I mentioned in my “Envelope System” post that I was giving myself a set budget for thrifting. I’ve found myself re-evaluating my purchases and putting things back before I check out. That's a good thing!
Isn’t this a cute checkered serving fork. Whenever I see a checkered pattern in my colors I buy it because I know it’ll work in my house.
It was only 55 cents! I think I’m starting a “random serving pieces” collections LOL!
This, I’m sure, was someone's fabulous Christmas decoration. It’s made out of grapevine and twigs - $1.91. I’m going to either put it in a big pot this summer with some morning glory seeds and let the vines grow up it, or spray paint it a fun color and put it in one of my flower borders as a fun accent.
$2.92 for a couple of yards of great fabric. I buy fabric and trim when I see it at the thriftstore as long as it’s in colors that I use.
This painting was $8.+change. I had it in my living room for a while and then realize that the black distressed frame was exactly like the distressing on my little china cabinet.
So I moved it.
I was going to put all my white pitchers on top but a few of them are being used around the house to hold bouquets (real and fake). So instead the top is now “things that pour”.
These are my very best find so far this year!
4 blue toile and gingham seat cushions for $9.99! They don’t look homemade so if they are that person was a very good seamstress. They have a zippered closure in the back and I love the contrast of the blue gingham.
These I’m not planning on keeping. I’m having a barn sale late spring/early summer that I’ll let you Atlanta ladies know about so you can come. I’ll be selling these and lots of other great things.
I also found another artichoke to add to my new artichoke collection!
Thank you for your visit today. I hope each of you has a wonderful week!
