Thank God it's thrifty Friday, Friends! As promised, today I'm sharing my fabulous finds from my recent thrifting adventures with Cecilia @The B Farm and she'll be sharing her treasures today too. First, like the store name, I was instantly smitten when I spied this vintage mother deer and fawn. You may remember, I already have the matching antlered buck. Aren't they sweet? I also found this fun sparkly pom-pom garland...
...and this cute little cement bird. All three were bargains and keepers!
Now for the thrift store finds! This pastel colored turkey really caught my eye. Cecilia and I both thought he looked handmade and then the day after I bought him, we saw several similar ones in darker colors--perhaps a local artisan. I love the pastel hues though and I haven't seen another like him.
Here's a blast from the past--remember these? My mother and most of my friends' moms had these when I was growing up. Recently, I saw a post from a blogger on Facebook who was remembering the one in her childhood home. Since this one is missing the base and the lights, it was a steal. I'm still debating on whether to keep it and give it a makeover or sell it...decisions, decisions! What would you do?
Trays have been good sellers in my vintage Etsy shop and I love the cheerful holly pattern on this Hallmark design. Available
I always enjoy finding handmade pieces like these charming Christmas hot pads. Available
Speaking of handmade, I think these whimsical hand painted bears could create such a cute vignette. Another idea, consider Mr. Bear's top hat and add a veil, a little lace and glitter to Miss Bear and they could even be used as rustic wedding or shower decor. Available
Finding little holiday trinkets like these for .25 each is part of the thrill of the hunt!
Remember to drop by and see all of Cecilia B.'s fabulous finds! Also, join us at this week's Vintage Charm party. It's live thru Monday morning and it's the perfect opportunity to visit and share your vintage treasures and repurposed projects. You're sure to be inspired by the features from other talented bloggers and who knows--you might just make some new friends too!
Until next time, happy hunting!
