Before we jump into our usual Thrift Score Thursday shenanigans, I wanted to tell you about my newest contributor post up at Remodelaholic! I made these accordion swing-arm wall sconces for pennies ($12 each!) and I hope you’ll head over to check out the tutorial after the following festivities!
Happy #thriftscorethursday, my friends!
I find myself measuring time by number of Thrift Score Thursdays these days…
Aaaand now I’m picturing myself telling stories to my grandchildren that begin, “Once upon a time, many thrift score thursdays ago…”
This week’s awesome cohost is Michelle from Weekend Craft! I got to meet Michelle at Haven where she blew everyone away with her adorable and crafty business cards that came with their own sweet souvenir!
Perhaps you are just stopping by today and are mystified by this so-called “#thriftscorethursday”. Allow me to explain:
Simply share a picture of any recent thrifty find on Instagram or Twitter (or both!) using #thriftscorethursday!
– You can share any thrifty finds with us – whether they hail from a thrift store, Craigslist, estate sale, garage sale, side of the road, or apartment dumpster! The fun, the funny, the awesome, the odd – this hashtag party is open to all!
– Feel free to use #thriftscorethursday any day of the week! We’ll be keeping up with the hashtag all week long to find our favorites for the following Thursday.
– Each week, Trisha from Black and White Obsession and I will pick a favorite thrift score or two to feature! So please note that by linking up with #thriftscorethursday, you are giving us permission to share your finds via social media or on our blogs.
You guys, last was my favorite week yet browsing #thriftscorethursday on Instagram! It was soooo hard to narrow my favorites down to the top three – I think I ended up with a top six or so – but I sucked it up and went with my gut. But seriously: go browse the hashtag for yourself and become insanely inspired to go treasure seeking!
I just love this shot Instagrammer hearthstonelogcabin shared last week! Something about the colors and the contrast of the ornate swirls of the white frame against that rustic wall – I love it!
How precious is this whimsical vintage tray Julia (Instagram: juliamadill) found at a yard sale? I can’t get over how sweet the design is!
Gretchen from Boxy Colonial (Instagram: boxycolonial) was actually given this Goodwill score Oriental rug by her mom (best thrifting wing-woman ever!). Even better: it was only $15! Even better: it has deer on it!
I picked up this set of four hand-painted vintage demitasse (or espresso) cups marked Made In Japan for 50 cents each a few months ago. I just couldn’t resist the colors and the lovely designs. The cups are so petite! I may not have any practical use for them, but I love them.
So what about you? Did you go thrifting last week? Did you score anything good? Share using #thriftscorethursday!
