Thrift Share

We went to several thrift shops this week and found some great stuff. My mom and dad are visiting for the week and we took off on Monday for a day out together. I was on the hunt for a dresser.

I needed lamps and thought these were really cute. Of course they were filthy but that is half the fun fixing them up. The guy wanted $10 each but he finally told me $7.50 after I pointed out that I needed to rewire them.

These little duck planters are adorable and will be going onto the Etsy shop. I think they are in perfect condition and could not pass up their cuteness.

I collect the old shell boxes when I see them. The glass diamond thing I thought I would decoupage. A great picture behind the back it will look cute.

I needed some of this trim to finish a chair I am doing, I think I am going to try and dye it brown.

This painted plate was just beautiful and has the signature of the artist on it. I could not resist the little metal frame, it is really very ornate and will be cute for something.

Great day was had at every thrift shop, I never found the dresser I was looking for.
