I had a babysitter for a few hours the other day. I was supposed to be using the time to clean the house, run errands, etc.
Supposed to. What did the responsible, time mananging adult that I am do instead?
And I'm so glad that I did. Look at all of these lovelies!
5 bucks for this dresser. I couldn't believe my eyes. Yes, it needs a little love. But no more than a few cans of spray paint and I have to give.
And these vintage linens? I had an armload after only looking at one rack. Some vintage-y aprons will definitely be in the works. I may even cut some fat quarters for the shop. But first I just want to sit and stare.
Vintage china. Pinch me. I must be dreaming. I can't decide if I should eat every meal for the rest of my life on them or if I should hang them up and gawk.
I'll let you know what I decide.
Sweet little Golden Books. I definitely feel some playroom art coming out of the lovely illustrations. Or maybe even a project like this one.
It was like I was meant to go in there. I needed to give a good home to all of these treasures. I haven't had so much luck in months...plenty of fun projects to come!
Happy Friday everyone!
Luv all your thriftin' goodies...the chest for $5 is my fav! Come by and check out my NIFTY THRIFTY PARTY and sign up for my CASH GIVEAWAY...great thriftin' money!ReplyDelete
I've got about a hundred million things to do, but I think I'll just run out to the thrift store first...ReplyDelete
Wonderful treasures! I always snatch up Little Golden books. We have a shelf full and many are ones that I remember reading as a child and just happened upon at a yard sale or thrift store.ReplyDelete
Love your linens!!!
Good for you! So glad you had a sitter & the time!ReplyDelete
So glad you got to sneak out for some thrifting fun!! You found some amazing things. Were all those items from the same store? I love the dresser and the vintage fabric you found. We love to get golden books at the thrift store too. I remember reading so many of them as a child. It's fun to know read them with my boys.ReplyDelete
I think you hit the motherload! Way to go girl!ReplyDelete
You just never know with thrifting do you...I think that's the fun of it!
I've had some good finds lately too. I think people are decluttering and cleaning house as new year resolutions. I know I've donated quite a few bags already this year myself.
Oh that's great fun. I'd love to do some cool things for my kids like with those books.ReplyDelete
