Well, I fulfilled the thrifting bug that I've had since the holidays! I spent the morning at the Armadillo Antique Mall in Omaha, where I scored all of the below items for less than thirty dollars. Yay! Usually when I go I might land on one or two things that I like (because I am both realllly cheap and extremely picky), but I managed to find a whole box of items today!
For the last few months I've been admiring milk glass online, so that was sort of in the forefront of my mind today. It's actually sort of tricky to find milk glass that doesn't have grape patterns on it. Apparently that was the rage at some point, but luckily for me I found a few sans fruit.
Some more from today:
A little McCoy planter.
I always look for old tins to keep my tea packets in. The cards are vintage cocktail party invitations. Someday I'm going to have this party!
So, all of that was from this morning and I can't wait to put everything to use! I have a few other items that I've been meaning to share below. This little squirrel was acquired on our trip to Kansas City this fall. Oddly, I found him in a tourist store that sold hats and t-shirts. They had one random shelf of vintage and there he was for $2. I can never resist little "guys."
Stage right: another "guy" that I picked up at an antique store in the QCs over Christmas. We were hunting for something for my aunt and they had a whole tree of these handmade elves. I couldn't resist getting one for our Christmas tree. He has glittery toes.
Here's wishing you all a wonderful week!
P.S. I'm still re-working the blog, but I'll let you know when I have everything squared away.
