Happy Thursday my friends and welcome to week 4 of #thriftscorethursday – your shiny new one stop hashtag-to-glory! Trisha from Black and White Obsession, Megan from Rental Revival and I are so excited to see and share your Thrift Score Thursday posts!
Simply snap a picture of any thrifty find or thrifted treasure and use #thriftscorethursday when you share on Twitter or Instagram!
– 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!

– Each week, we’ll pick a favorite thrift score or two to feature! So please note that by linking up with the#thriftscorethursday, you are giving us permission to share your finds via social media or on our blogs.
Last week was my favorite yet! You guys shared so many awesome finds – it was a smorgasbord of thrifty treasures!
I am absolutely head over heels in love with Julia’s (cuckoo4design) fighting brass roosters! First of all, they are brass animals. Second of all, she mentions that they can double as weapons in the event of a home invasion! ;) See them here in her gorgeous home!
I’m also very envious of Melissa’s (aprudentlife) fabulous retro lamp! She didn’t buy it at first, but then rushed back and was lucky to still get her hands on it after spying a similar one on Don Draper’s desk in Mad Men. So cool!
Okay, honestly, there were SO MANY great finds last week, it is killing me not to post them all! So I’m just going to have you to send you over to Instagram to view all the #thriftscorethursday posts and ooh and ah and potentially drool on whatever fancy schmancy electronic device you are using to view them.
Hey, you know I love brass animals (like those awesome roosters up there)… This brass ibex is one of several I own (three swans, two deer, a rocking horse, and a squirrel are the others). I love using Mr. Ibex as a bookend, although now I think I need two. Right? My spidey OCD senses are tingling to have just one bookend ;)
Mr. Ibex was originally sitting on a rather ugly and poorly varnished wooden base, so I decoupaged an old book page on top – it just goes to show you that a little crafty love goes a long way!
But he’s snazzy now, isn’t he?
