Vintage Thingie Thursday & Thrift Store Thursday...ur, uh, FRIDAY...


I know, I know....I'm posting on FRIDAY...so sorry.
Normally these posts are done BEFORE Thursday and automatically
posted on Thursday...well, time got away, life happened, and HERE WE ARE.
I ran through a few thrift stores in a nearby town....

Lamp $2.00!!! Yes, $2.00! I can't wait to break out the paint for this baby!
I can't get a lampshade until I know exactly where I am going to put it either...maybe in my
bedroom, maybe in my dining room, or maybe in my living room....we shall see.

Vintage sheet w/ RUFFLE...$.50
I wish I could find the whole set....or at least another flat sheet...these would
be great curtains in my bedroom....so, don't quite know what to do with it.

Another vintage picture for my collage...$3.00 (Actually found at an antique store)
Boy, when it warms up and THE WIND QUITS BLOWING....
there will be some spray painting going on around her....
I'm going to paint most of the frames a creamy white.

Vintage pillow for bedroom...$2.00 (Also found at antique store)
This is a long pillow...just look at the little ducks and the poms on the trim!!!

Pink sweater that is going to be made into a pillow...$1.00.
Brown pillow that LOOKS like it used to be a sweater but never
really was....$.50
Vintage serving dish...$.50

Look at the detail of the flowers....this will either go on my
bedroom wall or nightstand....still deciding.

Ok, this was NOT bought but qualifies as VINTAGE....
This dresser was given to me from my
husband's family....pretty sure it used to be his grandmother's dresser.
Right now, it is serving as extra cabinet space in my bathroom...I just despise
having the NORMAL cabinets in the bathroom above the toilet.
It is also a great linen "closet".

I think it does a lovely job hold that wonderful $2.50 retro clock as well.
The doily was made by my mother when she was younger....said she
always did them too tight.....and they would lay flat....I LOVE IT!!!

other people...just CLICK THEIR buttons above!!!

Hi! So funny because I have the 2 pillow shams that go with that sheet. Got them at an estate sale. I just don't have the sheets. I also love that pillow with the pom poms. So cute! Great finds.

I have some pink vases that you need.

I just adore that little dish-sweet! I wish I could find deals like you :)

Holly said...

Everything you found matches! How did you manage that? I love the vintage pillow and the sweater-to-be-pillow.
Thanks for joining!

Wow you made some great finds. I know you found pillows all ready, but I'm a firm believer that there can never be enough pillows, so how about some more pillows with that sheet? :0)
Love the lines of the lamp and can't wait to see how you give it a new life. That little dish is very cute and I think it'd look great hanging on a wall for all to see, enjoy and appreciate.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your "bathroom linen" chest. It speaks to me :))
Have a fantastic day!

Great stuff! Love the lamp! I can't wait to get my spray paint on too. I made the mistake of doing it in the basement of my store like some junkie haha. I ended up spray painting my shoes. Whoops - must have been the fumes.

Have a good weekend! See you next week :)
