Good morning friends! How has this week been treating you? It’s been insanely busy over here lately, but in a good way. I did manage to sneak away to the thrift store for a few hours, but sadly I had to return home empty-handed. At least I had all your inspiring finds in the #thriftscorethursday feed to get my vintage treasures fill!

P.S. The #thriftscorethursday birthday giveaway is over and the winner is being announced on Instagram today!
Brandi (Instagram: brandinell) scored this lovely ornate gold mirror on a Facebook garage sale group. I just love the design! I’ve been keeping my eyes open for a great price on something similar for quite a while now, so I’m pretty jealous!
You won’t believe what Jess from Bright Green Door (Instagram: brightgreendoor) paid for this solid wood midcentury credenza! Just $5! She was able to adapt it as the perfect entertainment center for her home by removing the middle door. I love it!
Dena from Hearts and Sharts (Instagram: heartsandsharts) has quite a gift for scoring vintage treasures! I hope she bought a lottery ticket last week, because the same guy who sold her this gorgeous Milo Baughman hutch was also selling a crazy awesome Pearsall style sofa!
So remember when I mentioned my lack-of-vintage-treasures-finding this week? Yep. Zilch. Nada.
I thought it might be time to dust off another “Things I Didn’t Buy At The Thrift Store”…
I think we need to start a #thriftstoreunicorn hashtag! Sadly, these gorgeous magical creatures end up at the thrift store in disproportionate numbers, apparently forgotten by those who once passionately adored them. Do you know how much I would have adored this colorful piece as a child? Hopefully it can find a second-life with another unicorn-loving little girl.
This lion painting really had me torn. It was an original piece of art done by “Mona” in 1976 and I loved the charming imperfections of it. I tried envisioning it in an updated frame, but I just couldn’t decide if it was good-wacky-vintage or just wacky. So I left it behind. What do you think?
I think I really should have picked up this cute little cherry pie plate! I don’t bake pies… ever… But it’s just so adorable! But I’m trying not to bring home things I don’t have a good use/purpose for. #responsiblehoarding
