I always seem to find something useful or enjoyable every time I shop the thrift stores. I don't always get around to doing something useful with them, so most end up in my to-do section.
Here are a few things that I made time to work on the last few weeks.
I thought this brass vase had a nice shape ... almost like a trophy. It just needed a little wire brushing and it was ready to paint.
It was 25¢ at my favorite shopping place.
Fabulous Finds Thrift Store
I am loving this color by Valspar that I got at Lowe's.
If I tire of this, I could paint it silver and make believe it is a trophy.
Looks pretty with
Snow on the Mountain wild flowers and a little Sweet Annie.
Pretty handle too.
Sweet little painted chair to add to my collection. $2.00
I love to use these for displaying pictures or other objects.
Beautiful antique shelf ... hang or sit.
notice the unusual metal straps to hang it.
Love finding vintage stoneware and pretty little birds.
Little oval plates are vintage Buffalo China restaurant ware.
Beautiful bird is pottery.
Bird was $2.00 and $15.00 for the eight plates.
Hope you are finding some interesting stuff.
Tomorrow Estate sales should be exciting.
Please visit these interesting parties.
