Last month, I was lucky to have had numerous outings to my favorite local thrift shops with my sister and two of my good friends. It's ALWAYS fun. I found a couple of nice big tins with pretty floral "needlepoint" designs, a small transfer ware plate and a restaurant china bread plate with a sort of lacy design I have never seen before:
I always pick up nice wooden coat hangers - these two were almost free, and I got a pretty pink and blue floral faded tablecloth, a beautiful floral sheet and a blue crocheted doily:
The sheet is so nice, substantial and crisp; it doesn't seem to have ever been used. I think it has a very Cath Kidston sort of a look - do you agree?
This great curlicued wrought iron magazine rack will get a coat of white paint:
A lovely blue flowered Vera tablecloth, blue rick rack, brass paper fasteners, and a sweet little vase or planter decorated with violets:
I also found these two frames:
Into both of which I promptly placed postcards:
Because that's what I do.
