Don't you love a good thrift store?
When you wander in and find a treasure trove
of oh so fabulous junque?
Where you can get your antiquing fix for just a few dollars on occasion?
A good thrift store is always a fun spot to shop.
Since finding out that my favorite little flea has closed
scouring the thrift stores for treasures
will have to do for now.
I have seen these shoe forms all over the blogs and in books
and they really are charming in person.
The wood has such a great patina & I was excited to find a matching pair.
The gorgeous glass door knobs caught my eye originally when I found this...
but there are nearly a dozen old door lock hardware pieces,
several brass keyhole pieces as well as random old painted chipping hardware
in this big baggie of architectural junque.
Love the old look of these just sitting in the tray.
I think this little treasure is pewter.
I am little monogram looney
so when I find something etched with monograms~
it's safe to say I am probably in love.
The crest is fantastic too.
I have been having a
not so secret love affair
with old tarnished silver for awhile now.
I am always looking out for pieces here and there.
I picked up a few pieces of flatware for .25 cents each
and these old footed trays.
I have a couple ideas for them already...
Have you found any great thrifting finds lately?
Here are a few links from last weeks party
It was filled with so much inspiration~
and I am perusing through them even now!
I wanted to mention that Blogger has been having comment issues
for a few days... I don't know much more about it
but I know that a lot of people have not been able to leave comments
on posts but my friend Tricia of A Rosy Note has this advice~
For anyone who is having commenting problems, try this...when you are logging in to Blogger uncheck the little box that says "stay signed in." I did this and all is well now.
Hope it helps you too.
*Also issues with FOLLOWING blogs has been popping up.*
Sometimes the FOLLOW box in the sidebar
shows up, sometimes it doesn't.
You can 'follow' at the top of my blog above my header
there should be a spot to click 'Follow' there as well
and that should work until Blogger fixes it.
Onto the review!
