Hello! There's a fun new meme in blogland, Junkin' Monday, hosted by Clara & Marcela @ Cottage Charm & Inspiration...and their blog lives up to it's name, you'll find oodles of inspiration!
I had a pretty good week thrifting...but as I've said before, y'all need to bear in mind, that my finds are usually a combined "haul" from at least 2, sometimes 3 or more trips. I often hear, "I just don't have your luck w/ finding good stuff". It's not luck...it's persistence, compulsion, addiction...whatever you want to call it. ;o) I live in a thrift town mecca w/ many stores w/in 30 minutes of me so it's easy to hit more than one in one day. Gotta love the metroplex!
I often buy linens & things too but they don't usually make it into the photos as they get laundered & then put away.
I was attracted to this pastel beacsue of the roses, mirror frame & flame of the candles but I'm not sure it'll work for me after all. For $3, I can afford to have buyer's remorse over it & redonate it.
The lady vase, I used on my granddaughter's birthday table. The porcelain doll will get a new identity w/ a pair of fairy wings & a new dress. Not sure the wicker lampshades will work for me but maybe.
Love the pressed glass creamer & the mirrors (there are 2) will get a coat of white paint...they were only $3. In the bag, are 4 tiny little furniture "legs".
I never pass up setwell pants hangers. I once sold a set of 6 on eBay for $30! Have y'all seen them used as a "picture hanger"? Too cute!
Lovely embroidered linens. I may frame the rectangle one...I have the perfect frame for it.
Vintage buttons & seam binding & rickrack. I've been very lucky finding these lately.
The buttons are still on their original cards.
Love these globes, that turn candlesticks into votives.
And a bagful of doggie stamps! I've bought more stamps at thrift stores than I have Michael's or Hobby Lobby!
Stop by Clara & Marcela's to see more finds & may all your hunts be filled w/ the "good junk"!
