It's All Good


Here are some of my thrift store finds from the last two weeks. Last week, my finds fell under a tidy theme, "Think Pink."

This week, not so much. It's all good. My favourite find was this little owl. Not sure what my deal is with owls, but I just love 'em.


I like the shape of this brass thingy. That's the technical name right? Thingy.


I got this tiny green vase.


And this pretty standing mirror. I was excited when I saw it from a distance. Up close, it's actually plastic. But still cute.


I like the pattern on the frame.


I also bought six of these melamine bowls. They were from a dollar store originally. They cost me 29 cents each. I don't really need them, but they remind me that there will be summer one day.


I got matching plates as well.

Have you been to the thrift store lately? Score any great deals?

  4. I like those bowls. I can't believe they're melamine - the palm trees really look like something painted on china. Nice haul!

  10. Great finds! Love that cute owl. I haven't been thrifting in a couple of weeks, and I think my husband is afraid to let me go since I keep bringing back furniture...

  11. Great finds - I'm always looking for little bottles. I put feathers in them that we find when birds have lost them - and tiny bouquets.

  15. I like owls, too. :) That mirror is great, I don't think anyone would know that it's plastic unless they got very close. Nice plates/bowls, too... Ya, summer will be here all right. All 98 humid degrees of it. Yayyyyy (not). ;)

  17. Love the owl, it's a gorgeous shape! and the tiny green vase is just wonderful.
    I'm new to your blog, I'm excited to find a thrifty and vegan blog - I'm a lazy vegan with mild food intolerances so really needing the inspiration!
    So will be following along :)
