thrifting thursday

.
some recent finds:


a collection of mismatched sugar bowls trimmed with gold paint for holding air plants.


"yksinäisyys" ["alone; solitude"].  beautiful needlework in black + cream wool.  found in a battered frame.  i plan to turn it into a pillow.


lucite ice bucket.  i haven't made a martini in years - so [for now] it will be holding marbles.


i need another vase like i need a hold in the head - but i couldn't resist.  not marked but appears to be vintage.  pretty pink on the inside.  the chevron pattern is carved into the vase.


deer planter + salt shaker for hadley's room.


bunnykins.  child's apron.  cup + saucer.


layers + layers of pale blue tulle.  floor length princess skirt.  the thrift stores bring out their costumes for halloween - and we stock up hadley's dress up closet for the year!

halloween is the best time to thrift, love all the stuff they bring out for "costumes" - stuff i'd wear any day. i just went thrifting on halloween to get G a sheet to be a ghost and found some really cool things. inspired to go back now.
