Inspired by Danielle Thompson's awesome "Vintage Love" posts, I had to join in the fun. I wanted to share a few of my recent thrift store scores. I hope you have a good time checking them out. I know I sure had a great time finding them.
Okay, so I know some of you(my mom included) have no idea why one would be so drawn to these funky late 60’s early 70’s styles, but I can’t seem to help myself. I just love these Holly Hobby-esque placemats. They remind me of the cloth Holly Hobbie dolls I played with when I was little. I also found this fabulous tutorial for adorable kids aprons. You can make them from this type of placemat. I might have to make a few for Miss Liv.
Oh, for the love of owls. I found these little guys at a great thrift shop in Spokane, Wa, while visiting my littlest sis. How cute are they!?! They will make my craft/sewing room an even happier place.
This little cream and sugar set was at the same thrift store. I just love them, but I might have to give them up to my other sis. She has a bit of an owl obsession.
I don’t know though, they might have to stay at my house for a while. I am not quite ready to give them up.
How wonderful is this Mikasa bowl and plate? I only found the two pieces, but I am now on the hunt for more. I don’t think I have ever seen this pattern. It brings to mind the wonderful Orly Kielyprints we all love. The plate is marked, Mikasa Duplex by Ben Siebel. The bowl doesn’t have a pattern name on it, but I am assuming they go together, as the colors are a perfect match and the bowl fits perfectly on the plate.
Have a great weekend, and I hope you find some treasures of your own.
