On Friday I hit the thrift stores - most were having holiday discounts.
I bought a lot of smalls.
Italian terra cotta pots.
Quite lovely designs.
Stamped in the bottom.
Just need a little more patina.
A neat work or drinks table.
Floral watercolor in an oval frame.
I was tempted to toss the print and keep the frame, but I didn't.
A pretty bone dish.
A Blue Ridge divided bowl - a few nibbles on the divider, but otherwise in good shape.
This is 14 inches across.
Have not a clue what one would do with it.
Needs a huge amount of cleaning.
Church collection plate?
A crochet pillow sham - not vintage in anyone's book.
A handmade lavender batiste baby shirt.
I wanted some rosaries for my Madonna's at Christmas.
I found a bag of them along with medals.
I will have to sort through these.
None of any value.
I finally found a dark wicker hamper for me.
Just needed washing.
A colonel's hat.
Don't know which service branch or what era or which country.
A big jar and a big vase.
Sears Chieftain metal portable typewriter.
I would show you its pristine condition on the inside.
However I snapped the lid on and now cannot figure out how to get it off.
See there on top of the hamper?
A bag of dolly pins.
I was on my way to Hobby Lobby to get a bag of these, but there was a new bag of them at the thrift.
I am currently giving the wicker baskets a makeover.
And it will not be white nor pink!
A group of four pretty platters perfect for hanging on the wall.
Who knows where to find cheap, but strong, platter hangers?
When I walked into the SPCA Thrift Shop in Langley, Wendy said she had me something.
I paid for them, but thought it was so nice of her to collect the wooden spools for me and wrap them up.
Wendy is a wonderful thrift store manager.
Another weekend is upon us.
I have a few plans for shopping and for working on projects.
Happy hunting out there.
I am hoping you are getting your projects ready for the grand opening of Make It Monday.
Come visit! You can start linking your old and new projects, makeovers, vintage finds, and furniture pieces at 7PM Sunday night.
Don't forget there's a giveaway.
Tamara had this link party for quite awhile and then took a break. Read the Party Announcement at Etcetorize!
