I always love these little jaunts, hunting for items for my home and things that I can revamp for my online shop. Today, between two stops, I found quite a few nice goodies!
I found this really neat bronze-colored birdcage with circular cut glass ornaments on each end. I will place a small silver tray in the bottom to hold candles, then find a location in my home for it. I'd been wanting another birdcage ever since I made the bad decision to get rid of one I previously had. Next to it is a gorgeous white metal lantern with glass panels - I can't believe that somebody gave this away! It has an, well, odd display in it (a tiny bird's nest, one blue egg, a goblet filled with sand, a small flower pot with a tea light in it and some shrubbery). Fortunately, none of these decorations are glued down, so they've already been removed and set aside for possible future projects. I have big plans for this lantern and it will show up in my shop soon!
In addition, I found two pasta/salad plates that are white with a black rim. I'm slowly building an everyday collection of mix and match black and white dishes. I picked up two sweet little bottles that I have revamping plans for, a really cute little dairy crock (perfect for butter or dips), a small sundial for my garden (come on spring!) and an ornate plate that will soon hold a candle and some potpourri or a floral/boxwood wreath. Hmm..seems that most of these items are staying with me. Well, some days it's like that. I can't sell every treasure I find, can I?
On my way home, it dawned on me that today was Thursday and I was thrifting - why is this important? Because it's Thrifting on Thursdays at SavvyCityFarmer's blog! Wow! I'm actually on time for something! OH! I also stopped by the grocery store and picked up the new copy of Romantic Homes magazine so I could admire the wonderful feature of my friend Janet of Shabbyfufu - congrats Janet!
So, I guess it was an extra good thing that I was flexible today. I got some new goodies for the after Christmas redecorating bug, some new projects to work on and I had a little break time that I totally enjoyed.
I hope you've enjoyed thrifting with me today and I thank you for being here! Have a wonderful day! Hugs, Leena
