Last week I hit a few thrift shops and found some great finds~
I have needed a dish rack for a long, long time. This metal one had a handle that slides out so that it hangs over one side of my double sink. It is perfect for me as I have limited counter space!
Old books for stacking. One is a book of Shakespeare poetry.
I have no idea what it is about, but the language of old William is quite lovely and eloquent, don't you think?
I snagged up the rustic red metal plate, it will go to the shop.
Those green plates, however, are staying with me!
This old Spaniel will be sold in the shop as well. He is so cute, a bit sad and chipped yet perfectly vintage!
I love old aprons and that red gingham one was right up my alley! I passed on it's blue partner which I might have to go back and get.....I imagine it's gone. Don't you hate it when you pass on something that calls to you later? My number one junkin' and thrifting tip: pick up anything that remotely calls to you, even if you aren't sure. Put it in your cart as you shop. If you don't, more often than not it won't be there when you decide later that you can't live without it!
I have a few more weeks to do some shopping for Jazz before we do a bit of the "blahs-of-winter" sprucing and fluffing of our space. I am excited to help Tara do a make-over, maybe with a few hints of spring color. It's about the time of year we start feeling the winter doldrums and need a bit of color and cheer in our lives!
I hope you all had wonderful weekends and found a few thrifty treasures of your own!
