Friday's Find #135

Thank God it's thrifty Friday Friends! On the rare occasion that I'm not shopping thrift stores, I have a few favorite haunts that I love to browse locally. Smitten is one of those places and I often find bargain vintage pieces like this sweet mama rabbit and her baby. You can read more about my adventures at Smitten here, but first check out the rest of this week's fabulous features...

Transferware! Need I say more? I found this Staffordshire sugar bowl at one of the thrifts I visit regularly. It's the kind of place that I can shop three weeks in a row without finding one thing but then I find the little something that makes my frequent trips worthwhile! This charmer is right at home in my recently revamped china cabinet.

I often buy shakers that are missing mates. I have plans for this copper topped lovely. (Update: see how I used it here!

Corn husk dolls are a frequent seller in my vintage Etsy shop and I couldn't pass on this rustic lady with her very own corn husk goose!

I also found this trio who seem to have been crafted by the same artisan. Perhaps they are Goose Girl's younger sisters ;)

Guess what? On Monday, I'm starting a new series called The 15 Minute Fix.  As someone with a bent toward perfectionism, there were times in the past when I procrastinated or avoided a task altogether if I didn't have a big window of time to complete it.  In time, I've really come to appreciate that the little things really do matter. Since I've applied this practice to projects as well, I am often surprised by how much I am able to accomplish when I simplify. There will be mini makeovers, quickie garden tips and more, so drop by and check it out!

Until next time, happy hunting!

  1. Your sweet finds are making me want to get out there and start thrifting! I have been inside all week with a cold. I love everything you found!

  2. Oh be still my heart! I love the sugar bowl! The bunnies and cornhusk dolls made me smile and just what are you going to do with that shaker? :-)
    I am so guilty of procrastinating on a project if I don't have a large block of time to do it start to finish so I'm looking forward to you 15 Minute Fix feature. Have a great weekend!
    Hugs, Cecilia
