Happy Thursday, everyone! Has this last week just flown by at warp speed for you guys too? It seems like I blinked (and worked nearly every waking moment on some recent projects) and suddenly it’s another Thrift Score Thursday!
I’ve been trying to be really restrained with what I’m bringing into the house at the moment, so I actually haven’t had too many recent thrift scores lately.
Which means it’s time for another round of…
Things I Didn’t Buy At The Thrift Store
You guys know my overwhelming attraction to brass animals! So I was pretty tempted by this little brass quail, but managed to graciously leave it behind for some other lucky thrifter.
How cute is this ornate rolling brass plant stand? I love the teeny brass casters!
I thought this embroidered art was really striking! I’m always in awe at the skill and effort pieces like this must have taken!
P.S. Does anyone else get stuck trying to find words in the light yellow stitching on the road? I feel like it has to say something, right?!
This original pastel portrait was really neat, but I’m no Emily Henderson. I don’t think I’m quite cool enough to pull off a random little boy in my decorating scheme… Yet.
These two brass lamps were in great shape and obviously quite well-made. If there was a twin to either one, I would have been pretty likely to bring the pair home! My inability to buy singles of things helps keep my thrift store purchases in check.
Finally, I snapped a picture of this super cool vintage adding machine that’s been sitting in this thrift store for months now. I’m curious if it will ever sell, but it’s fun to admire!
Okay, you guys – we’re back to the good old way of sharing #thriftscorethursday features. As much as I loved the embedded functionality last week, I heard from several of you guys that you weren’t even able to view the pictures, which kind of defeats the purpose, right?
So I went back to the usual way of uploading and linking the features. Which reminds me – did you realize that each feature photo is linked to its source on Instagram? So if you click the photo, you’ll be able to view it in context on Instagram, like it, and even follow the Instagrammer from there! I’m not sure I ever spelled that out clearly before, but I take a few extra minutes each time to make sure it’s easy for you to track our featured Instagrammers down and give them all the love!
Ready for the actual features now?
Sharla (thealabastervessel) found this 1930’s German-wind up clock for $2 at a garage sale! I’ve never seen anything like it and I’m not exactly sure how it works, but I absolutely love it!
Such a great idea from Crystal (clearcutcrystal) – she created this inspirational word art on top of an old piece of art! It’s such a great backdrop for her lovely fall vignette.
Can you tell I have a thing for art? I’m obsessed with this incredible Toronto Symphony art (by artist Toller Cranston – definitely worth investigating, you guys!) that mellabobella found at a local vintage store.
Thrift Score Thursday is a party and you are all invited to join in!
Simply post a picture of any recent thrifty find on Instagram using #thriftscorethursday!
