There are so many things I need to do. The garage needs to be cleaned out, the study needs painting, the floor in the sun room needs a good scrubbing...I even have some crafty things to finish and post. But, instead of doing any of those things, I hauled out my light box and photographed my lovely thrift finds. Oh boy. Nope, I'm not even going to try justify it, I'm just going to show you what I'd rather spend time with today rather than house duties or past hobbies! My last thrifting adventure led me to a beautiful crystal lamp made in Holland (THIS POST) and I bought it even though it had no shade. Then I saw this:
... and look at sitting on the lamp:
It's a winner! I love it :) A few weeks ago, our kitten Sushi broke the dainty pink Teleflora vase I picked up for $1. (You can read about both in this post!) On Saturday, I found the same light pink but this vase has the word "LOVE" etched on it ($1). Another win! The sweet crystal bell I believe is by Hofbauer and it was priced at a mere $1.25. The same thrift store also had these treasures:
BLACK milk glass! CARAMEL milk glass! and a white milk glass vase thrown in for good measure! What a find! I have read about the other colors of milk glass but hadn't seen any so at first I wasn't sure if these were. The black glass was $2 and it was $1 for both vases - blows my mind that it would be priced so cheap! I bought the crocheted doily also for .50. I had "Fenton silver crest" on my milk glass bucket list and LOOK!
Isn't that a sweet candlestick holder? Fenton silver crest --at Goodwill --$2. AWESOME :) The footed dish is Brody milk glass ($1).
Let's get retro for a minute, shall we:
I *love* finding dishes my mom has. This was $3 - three BUCKS! It makes me actually want to cook. Comfort foods like tuna casserole...and stuffed green peppers...and camper's special :) Vintage rocks but new is cool too:
PINK Tupperware - $2! These are too cute. I am so taking my lunch to work next week! ;) Speaking of work, I found a super-cute note holder for my desk (and a few of his friends):
The faux tortoise shell note clip was $1 but the pottery owls were cheaper than that because they came from the GW outlet (59 cents/pound!). These also came from there:
The final find of the day was this thermos set. How cute is this!? The set was $3 and I was excited to find it in excellent condition. Only one of the thermoses had been used (although I cleaned both thoroughly). Perfect for packing up and hitting the thrift trail!
