Thrifted Finds

Last week I found a few cute things at the thrift.  My favorite has to be the retro bamboo print tray.   We are using it on our new ottoman to double as a coffee table.  While sorting through some "grab bags" they had there, I scored some really pretty floral trims and lace.  Not all are shown in this pic. 

Also found a peach lustre Fire King casserole and an Asian print paper fan. 

In another set of grab bags, there were some wooden domino boxes that I'm sure I can find a use for, and a little brush with a wooden doll head handle.  Not sure what this is exactly, but I love the handle.  Maybe a vintage lint brush? 

Lots of things going on lately.  A trip to Georgia last week to pick up dining room furniture that was my Great Aunt's.  She had linens galore.  Aprons, tablecloths, pillowcases, runners, doilies.  I'm still trying to wade through everything.  And if that wasn't enough, we are putting my Grandmother's condo on the market.  She is now in an assisted living center, so my Mom and I have made several trips already to pack, sort, and clean.  If only it wasn't three hours away!  Busy, busy.  When I can get my mess together, I'll post some pics.  We have found some amazing stuff! 

Hope everyone has a great week!

  1. Boy, I love that brush, but I have no idea what it's for. Your aunt's house sounds like it was full of treasures.


I love to hear from you!
