Thrifting for the win

While visiting my husband’s family this past week, I went thrift shopping with his mom and my sister-in-law. Maybe it’s because I was in vacation mode and I am more willing to spend money or maybe it’s because the thrift shops in Peterborough, ON are better than where I live.

I have been looking for some milk glass and small decorative pieces to decorate our new house. Here are the treasures I found at Talize, probably the best thrift store I’ve been to.

These 4 milk glass pieces cost a total of $10. I can't wait to put some plants in the pots and use the vases.

I have been looking for unique, pretty art work and this painting for $2 stole my heart. I also love drinking tea out of bone china and this taller mug for $1 is perfect! The pattern on the pot really grabbed my eye - now to get planting!

I think I'm going to use the big plate (it cost $0.49) under a pot to catch water or to hold candles. The small bone china plate ($0.99) is going to hold jewelry.

Something about this painting for $1.49 really captivates me. The bird cost $2 and I spray painted it white. Turned out great!

My final and cutest purchase has to be these little girl shoes that cost $3. They fit my 1 year old perfectly!

In total I spent $25 for 12 items. I don’t think I have to go shopping for a long time now! Most of the time I walk into a thrift store and nothing catches my eye. The stars aligned this time and I am so pleased and thankful!
