Hi everyone and welcome to this week's edition of Thrifty Thursday, where I share my weekly thrift store/swap meet/estate sale finds.
As you read this, Phillip and I are heading down to Disneyland for our long-awaited trip for to celebrate his 30th birthday! I'm so excited to see everything decorated for the holidays- I'll be sure to take lots of pictures to share.
With all of the Thanksgiving hubub and trying to get my pattern shop ready for the weekend, I didn't end up posting a Thrifty Thursday last week. We also didn't get out to any thrift stores or estate sales as we usually do. As a result, all of these finds are from the week before last.
My favorite find of the week was this cute little female Dream Pets deer in the photo above. I matched her up with my green-antlered male deer, who I thrifted last year, though when I got my Christmas boxes out I realized I had found another Dream Pets deer. They also seemed like they might go together due to the white and red color scheme but I ultimately decided she went better with Mr. Green Antlers. The picture I took of all of them turned out pretty funny though- like some kind of Dream Pets love triangle! Which one do you think is a better match?
I found these rose wall hangers at a yard sale. Phillip was skeptical but I think they're cool! I think they would look great in a little girl's room or bathroom. I'll be putting in the antique space soon.
I found this container of knitting needles at an estate sale for $2. I couldn't resist it when I saw this adorable knitting book that came with it. I'm still a very novice knitter but I'm determined to get better on of these days, and now I'm prepared!
I was happy to find a few more vintage sheets and a tablecloth as well. (My vintage sheet stash is getting a little out-of control! I need to think of some more things to make with them- any suggestions?)
We found four of these cute linen tea towels with a household appliance theme at an estate sale. I'm not sure if they're real vintage or repros. Does anyone know?
I found these three light blue Pyrex bowls at a yard sale. This is the first time I've seen them in that color and also the first time I've found this striped pattern.
More Christmas! I found this box of ornaments and this little Santa/snowman? guy for 25 cents. He's actually a fabric-covered coffee tin. I found this tablecloth at a thrift store last week as well. You can't see, but it has a cute pom-pom trim.
And lastly, this doggie planter and green quail were some more yard sale finds.
