I was planning on sharing a furniture make-over with you today, but Tammy at Type A is starting a "Hunter Gatherer" party on her blog, so I'm sharing some recent finds instead. Now I know my last post was on "stuff" shopping, but really, who doesn't love a good deal?! I promise I'll talk about something else next week!
Last weekend after the yard sale where I scored the harvest basket and wood crates I showed you in the last post, I decided to stop by Goodwill to see if I could keep the bargain mojo going. Yard sales and thrift shops in one day -- my idea of a good time!
And my luck continued! I found this set of milk glass vases.
I think they'd look great with a bud in each and lined down a dining room table instead of a centerpiece. The small ones were just 50 cents each, and the larger one was 75 cents. What a deal!
I love these little bud vases. They are hand-blown glass rimmed with what looks like 14k gold. A label on the bottom of one says it was made in Egypt.
It's brass detailed with red berries. I've never seen one like this before. (It's going on Etsy in Mr. P's Emporium if you're interested!)
I've talked about how versatile cake plates are before. This glass one is a bit smaller than typical, it would look great with a couple of larger ones on a buffet.
This serving plate isn't vintage, but it's fun! It adds a little savoir faire!
And lastly, these two large hobnail goblets are a beautiful green. Personally I think they are too big to drink from, but they will make great candle holders for the holidays!
I think the candlelight bouncing off of all those facets will be lovely.
So that's my haul from last weekend. Who knows what lies ahead for this weekend?! Thanks for giving me an excuse for sharing Tammy!
