thriftin' thursday

ok. i know i promised another thrifting post awhile back, but better late than never? I have quite a few goodies for ya'll today. some old finds and some as recent as today (the mr. will find this out when he reads this) hehe. i love a good thrift store and honestly would rather have something used than new (most of the time). hopefully this will inspire you to hit up your local thrift store. but stay safe, there is some crazy weather out there.
first up

this pretty little (big) bamboo mirror
i'm seeing some liquid gold leaf
in the near future

a collection of sorts

and another

i've added these to the mr.'s desk

the lamp
previously seen here
now has a shiny (used) lamp shade
i originally planned on changing the color of the shade
but the gold grew on me :)

the mr. and i picked this doorbell frame? up at a flea market awhile back
one day, we'll put it on our house
for now it resides on our coffee table

i am thrilled with these!
i found these at the goodwill down the street
and instantly fell in love!
they both have gorgeous 
silk lampshades...

...but considering the lack of space in our apartment
they are currently residing in the back of the mr.'s xterra

and a close up of the detail pride and joy

bought this about a year ago
for $20!!
yes, still haven't gotten it recovered
but i'm waiting on us to move
and then then make the decision on the fabric

so there you have, my obsession :)



  1. Love, love, love the chair!!

  2. What a cute collection of glass jars <3 Mine are filled with sand from Lignano Sabbiadoro (Italy) & beautiful blue shells I found on another beach. Can't wait to see how the mirror turns out :)

  3. that mirror is quite the find! and that chair better be recovered soon or I'm going to have to steal it for my own apartment!
