Due to the forecast that called for imminent rain today, I had planned a thrift store outing for this afternoon- just me and my boys.
The rain never actually came, but we did stumble on to some treasures . . .This little plate caught my eye- AND it was half off!
Isn't it cute all nestled in the serving drawer with my other small platters?
I also found this old brass lamp for only $7.50! It's nice and tall, which I like for reading.
Now I just need to find the perfect shade to go with it!
The last treasure I found this afternoon was this pretty vintage embroidered linen- I'm totally smitten with it!
Here's some detail.
I just love the colors . . . they're such an unusual color combination . . .
And here is the edge . . . isn't it pretty?
I still haven't quite decided what I'm doing with this- maybe hang it in the mudroom window as an impromptu curtain.
And while I'm on the subject of thrift store finds, do you see the two patterned pillows below? I found them last month while on a date with my husband (yes, he likes thrift stores, too. He gets points for that.)- I was super excited because they were brand new and only 5 bucks a piece. And I LOVE the colors in them!
In fact, they've been my inspiration for decorating this summer.
Slowly, but surely, things are getting moved about, aired out, tidied up and lightened up. I only use what I already have on hand; just shaking things up a bit . . . packing some things away, bringing other things out from other rooms . . . lots of fun! :)
I'll share more when I get a little further.
What treasures have you found lately? I'd love to hear!
