Happy Friday Friends! I am looking forward to a weekend away visiting my girlfriend. We have a weekend of thrifting, antiquing, and reconnecting planned...my favorite kind of plans! Last weekend I came across this copper pitcher at a thrift store. It was 25% off day at the store so I paid only $5 for it. … Continue reading Cleaning a Vintage Copper Pitcher
Even though I spend a lot of time at home in the Winter one thing I still love to get out and do on a regular basis is visit my favorite thrift stores. When searching for items I am usually looking for items to buy for decorating my own home, for supplying my Etsy shop, and for prepping for a local vintage sale. Throughout the entire year whether I a shopping at a thrift store, yard sale, or flea market I tend to gravitate to some of the same things.
Just over a week ago I shared a few recent thifting finds . One of my those finds was an old iron light fixture that had a pretty cream patina.
A few weeks ago I shared my vintage plate wall. It is one of my favorite corners of our kitchen/dining room. I have always been drawn to collecting old plates. At one time I collected red transfer-ware.I loved that collection, but about 7 years ago we bought a house that had blue carpet and the collection just didn't go with that house. I began decorating our old home with more grays and blues.
I love a good day of thrifting! I actually prefer it over any other type of shopping except maybe shopping for books. I love finding unique one-of-a-kind items for our home. Another hobby of mine is also finding items to pass along to others. This Summer I attended a couple vintage fleas as a vendor and I loved it!
I am here today to share a favorite little corner of my dining room. I love to thrift shop and buy second hand! Most all of the items in our home other than the larger items like our sofas, love seats and beds all have been purchased second hand. I rarely buy any decorative items brand new or retail.

I am often on the look out for interesting items to fill my Etsy shop. I accumulated these three painting at different times over the Summer & Fall. My intention … Continue reading Vintage Waterscape Gallery Wall
Happy Monday! Have I told you before how much I love finding a new use for old things? One of my favorite things to find from thrift stores, flea markets and yard sales are old wooden crates. Size or shape does not matter! I always find a use for a good old crate! When putting … Continue reading Vintage Crate Shelves
Happy Wednesday! I wanted to share today one of my favorite thrift finds! I have been on the look out for an owl cookie jar for quite a while now. I had searched Etsy over and over for one, but they were always too expensive for my taste. Then I found this… for this price…! … Continue reading Favorite Thrift Find
