All our free time lately has been spent scouring craigslist and thrift stores for the perfect pieces to furnish our new house. We’ve found some great bigger items like a desk, tv stand, and a shelf for our records but we are pretty far from being finished. Until then, I just wanted to take a minute to share some of the neat little things I found on recent trips to the thrift store!
I found these pretty dried flower pieces at two different thrift shops in the same day. I usually don’t buy things like this but something about them just spoke to my inner grandma. I decided that day to start collecting them. I found this gorgeous one on etsy but I don’t think I’m ready to splurge on my new collection just yet. . I think I’d rather just stumble upon them slowly for a few dollars at a time than to actively seek them out for a lot more dough, ya know?
This dress is super shapeless and awkwardly long but I couldn’t resist the awesome pattern. I wore it around the house on laundry day but I have a little diy planned to make it really cute and perfect for summer.
One of my favorite things to thrift for is pretty dishes. I love to share my recipes on the blog and I’m also in the process of building up a cake decorating portfolio, so it’s nice to have some variety when experimenting with my “foodtography”.
In the background of these photos is a pretty lace tablecloth I bought. I got it on a whim— I didn’t even have a kitchen table at the time. AND I was even searching for a rectangular table but for some reason I went ahead and bought this round tablecloth for no reason? I’m usually very practical when thrifting but I just couldn’t talk myself out of it. Then, when I went home for Memorial Day my mom *just happened* to have this extra table so everything just kinda fell into place!
