My house is a disaster right now. For the past few weeks, I have lived in somewhat of a construction zone. We are having some minor remodeling done and between the paint and flooring littering just about every surface of living area and the constant noise, I am about to lose my mind. I cannot stand a mess. I am horribly OCD when it comes to disarray. So what I've been doing to avoid pulling my hair out is getting out of the house and away from the chaos. So what do you think I've been doing? Thrifting and antiquing. Obviously :-)
Some cute Fire King and Hazel Atlas bowls are always good finds.
A couple of new glasses for my collections.
A child size iron that actually works from a local shop. Easter is slowly trickling into the thrifts and antique malls. I found this sweet pink Gurley bunny at Goodwill along with the flower frog which they had in the display case! Dear thrift store....why do you put things in a display case and then price them at $1.99? I understand small things like jewelry but really, who is going to stuff a giant heavy flower frog in their pocket?
Both of these items are duplicates for me but way too cheap to leave behind. I'll probably end up selling them on IG.
I found the tiniest pottery pitcher mixed in with the planters at Goodwill. I think I already have it but maybe in a different color. And I am never one to pass on canisters, especially when they meet my price requirements (cheap!). I store things in them all over the house!
I love this tray! It is huge and I actually used it last night when I ate dinner in bed. I live a rough life sometimes.
I found the pink one at a garage sale a couple of years ago. Don't they look pretty together?
I treated myself to the Fire King shakers a while back. It was killing me that I couldn't find them in the wild. I made a really low offer to the seller on eBay and she accepted it! So now I feel justified because even if I ever find them while I'm out and about, I bet they will be priced at least 3 times what I paid, even with shipping. The cocktail shaker was a recent flea market find that I just found in the back of my car. How could I have forgotten about that?!
Another day of hiding out tomorrow. I think I'll spend some time upstairs listing some items so I can justify bringing more home.
Have a great evening!
