So after I cured myself of my thrifting cure I went back out into the thrifting world this past week to see what I could find. Since I hadn’t been out for about 3 weeks there was a lot of new-to-me stuff on the shelves.
Maybe that’s the trick… going less often, but I’m also being pickier about what I bring home.
I fell in love with this decorative metal cross. I just love it’s design
I can’t resist wooden rolling pins, but I’ll only buy them if they’re $1 or less. I have 7 or 8 now. I have ideas of how to use them, but just haven’t gotten to it yet. This winter maybe.
The cream horn baking forms need to be repurposed into Christmas ornaments.
This dark green speckled strainer is in great shape, and I love the colour and shape of this glass bottle.
I’ve never seen copper coloured glass chandelier crystals so I had to grab these. I wish there were more, but this was it. Perfect for a fall project.
I rarely find decent music books, but there were some just waiting for me.
I bought these shower curtain rings for the roses, which I’ve already broken off so I can use them in projects.
I don’t think this is vintage, so I won’t have any qualms about giving it a makeover. Can you picture teacups on those candle holders?
These hand carved wooden goblets are another first for me. I’ve never seen anything like them before. I’m not sure you’re actually supposed to drink out of them, but they are pretty cool.
And last but not least, these lovely purple chandy crystals. They’re plastic, but still very pretty. I have to remove all the rusty split rings and give these a good cleaning and then they’ll be perfect for a project or two… or three. It’s quite the bunch. What do you think of these Dona? Are they purple enough?
Thanks so much for reading and until next time…
keep on thrifting!
