Last Week’s Thrifting Haul
You just never know what you’re going to find. I found lots of decor items last weekend, and a baby gate too (not pictured—who wants to look at a picture of a baby gate?). Our little guy is very mobile now and the new house has an open stair down to the basement so a baby gate is very necessary.
See that cute little footstool? I thought it would be darling reupholstered in a velvet…perhaps with the legs painted or at least stained another shade? $1.
Tin platter of the Sacre Coeur in Paris. I have happy memories of that lovely church near Montmartre—this will go on a wall eventually. 25 c.
Two geometric metallic balls…50 c each.
Orange glass bowl…$1.
Cake plate (brand new Threshold brand from Target!) $1.
My favorite find of the week---metal urn, also a dollar. I’ve seen these all over blogland and finally have one of my own now to decorate with! Yay! I could see this with evergreen boughs in at Christmas time.
Blue basket (also originally from Target) $1.50
Garage saling can be really hit or miss, and I’m calling this week a hit. :) Our citywide garage sales are this weekend but I doubt I’ll have much time to go as we’re closing on our current house and the new house and moving on Thursday. (EEEP!)
I’m excited to see what the garage sales are like in our new neighborhood!
