Thrifting Finds

Today I needed to get away from the disaster zone that is our kitchen and get my thrift store fix. So far there hasn’t been much progress besides removing the backsplash on one side.

We are moving along slowly but surely.

Back to my thrift finds, here’s what I managed to snag today from Goodwill and a vintage shop in the downtown area.

First, I found these cute Churchill blue willow china cups at Goodwill. I don’t think I really got them for a steal ($2.88 a cup) but I love having a matching set of cups for my coffee bar.

Next, I stopped at my favorite vintage shop in my little downtown area. It’s called Ella’s What Not Shop and Ella just happens to be the cutest little puppy that hangs out in the shop.

I bought the TEA cup ($5) that is now up on my coffee bar, as well as this cool little vintage looking frame ($3). I had been looking for a small oval frame for a while so this fit the bill perfectly. Still need to figure out where it’s new home will be.

Finally, I snagged a gorgeous vintage looking globe with a wooden base ($20).Β It now sits on top of the library along with my mini globe from homegoods and my light up globe from Goodwill.

My goal it to fill the top of the library with globes, similar to this picture I found on Pinterest, although it looks like it’s from an IKEA catalog.

Okay, I need to stop procrastinating and start tackling the monster that is our kitchen renovation. Hopefully we will have more progress to share soon!
