Thrift Find Friday!

I'm pretty crafty but I'm even thriftier. Thrift Find Friday will probably be your best bet at snagging your favorite vintage pins for your hat before they're gone!

Had a chance to stop by one of my favorite thrift shops in the city this afternoon. Ye Old Antique Barn has definite bankers hours but it is always filled with new glorious treasures that need a little cleaning, painting or re-purposing. Went in looking for clay pots and came out with these goodies:

The set of 4 silver wine goblets are unbelievably tarnished but if elbow grease doesn't work, I think they'll make for some sturdy candle holders. :))

And who doesn't need more awesome candy dishes and gaudy gold frames? (Me.)

The turquoise piece is eerily similar to what I'm wearing today...

If you ask me, those cameos need to go for a quick spin before they're pinned down! But, that sewing machine pin! Sigh* that is just waiting for the perfect home on a really striking hat. Perhaps something with black net and red roses?? I guess we'll see... :)

"A society is defined not only by what it creates, but by what it refuses to destroy."

Wishing you all a creative, sunny weekend!
