Thrifty Thursday


I was looking for a tray in a local thrift store, any color because I was planning on painting it. I never see good trays.
I did come a way with a few goodies on the cheap.
The blue and white bowl is most likely on its way to my bedroom which is pale blue and white.

It definitely needs an infusion of Chinese blue and white porcelain.


These fetching little things are staying close by in the kitchen. I use little bowls like this for condiments regularly.


I got two of these hammered brass vases.


I like the repetition of the orb theme in different textures.
I believe everything was under $10 bucks combined.
I just wish they had a tray!
Do you like hunting for goodies in thrift stores?

LOVE my local thrift stores... I try to only stop once a week or else my home would look like I'm a hoarder!
