Friday's Find: Vintage Treasures!

Thank God it's thrifty Friday! Today I have oodles of thrifty Vintage goodness to share with you--the kind that makes it worth getting out of bed on a rainy morning! I had been looking for milk glass candle sticks so I was thrilled to find both a tall and a shortie. My heart skipped a beat when I saw this divine Hazel Atlas plate with the luscious aqua scalloped rim! Ready for more? We're just getting started...

I was instantly drawn to this rustic shoe shine kit from the 50s.  It's all wood and I am thinking it will make a unique display for something...not sure what yet, but you'll see it soon.  A $5 yard sale find--happy dance! Update: See how I repurposed it!

Another Vintage platter....yes please! Especially when it's pretty Royal Vitreous made in England by Maddock and Sons, also a yard sale find! Update: See my upcycle!

I adore Vintage tins of all sorts.  This was 50% at my favorite local store and is right at home in my kitchen.
