I am supposed to be painting right now but I can't find the tape so I'm blogging instead. While I was searching for the tape, I realized that I meant to show one of my latest thrift finds and that I never got around to photographing it. Well, one thing lead to another and I took photos of a few other scores...
Old Cabinet Door, $5.
This thing is damn heavy:
2 Mikasa Serving Plates, $0.90 each.
These are a little bigger than a standard dinner plate & they have a great textured pattern:
Serving Tray, $5.
My friend Margaret bought this for me. She asked me to go to the thrift store with her to return a bunch of clothes. Since they only give store credit, she made me pick something. I told her I couldn't let her buy me anything...but then I found this. Carved wood & ceramic tiles. I recently found the perfect home for it above our oven, which is surrounded by subway tiles:
Chippy Candle Holder, $4.
Here's more of that drab green color that I despise so much (so much). It's going to be painted one day, when I decide on a color. It's fairly large, I think it will find a home in the dining area. For now it lives in a closet (except for the photo...I picked a nail on the wall and hung it temporarily):
So that's that.
Oh, and hello to everybody who has found me through Smile and Wave! Thank you Rachel for the feature. :)
Also, I've been changing my blog layout a bit so I apologize if the text isn't lining up properly. It's so much better than the stark white, don't you think?
