It’s hard to decide what I like best about thrifting.
The savings? Check.
The thrill of the hunt? Definitely.
Finding unique items? I’m hooked.
The green element? Gives me the warm fuzzies.
The characters you see shopping? Always entertaining.
The truth is, it’s all fun to me. Here’s what I’ve brought home from my recent thrifting outings.
These matching planters were serendipitous finds, because I bought them at separate estate sales in the same week. I love the way they go together.
And about that sad stem of rosemary: I’m trying to grow a rosemary topiary using these directions. I think it’s going to be a long road. Advice would be appreciated.
This $2 garage sale plant stand is helping me with my effort to have more live plants in the house.
I got lucky with some clear glass on the last day of an estate sale near my house. The jar on the right is one of the Heritage Hill jars that I recently blogged about.
This empty frame was waiting for me at another estate sale. I have plans for it and I hung it up in my kitchen to check out the spot where it will go. I’m leaving it up until I get to it because I think even empty frames are pretty, although a friend of mine asked me if we had had an art heist of some sort. Funny girl!
I found this stack of oval restaurant plates at Urban Mining Homewares in Kansas City. Since I live in the land of beef and steak houses, I immediately pictured them with steak and baked potatoes on them and I mentally planned that menu for Father’s Day.
The Father’s Day plans are why I had to add this stack of blue bandana print napkins when I saw them. I have never been so prepared for Father’s Day in my life!
