It seems like forever since my last thrifting post, most likely because it really has been! Over the past six months while Tallow wasn't at all impressed with going in the car, thrifting was pretty much out of the question, but since we've been back in Mildura and Tallow's out grown her dislike of the car, it's been so much easier to pop out for a quick search of a thrift shop or two. Before we moved we decluttered a great deal, so these days I'm not on the hunt for too much really, but every now and then when something catches my eye, I just can't resist bringing it home. My rule is these days that my finds have to be both practical and beautiful and we are also enforcing a one in one out rule, especially in the kitchen, so only the best bits and pieces make it through the door. I'm pretty happy that these finds made the cut.
I nearly left this tea set behind, until I realised I already owned the matching sugar bowl. So a week later I went back and thank goodness the thrifting fairies had been keeping an eye on it for me. So lovely to complete the set.
Searching for floral linen & fabric might just be one of my favourite past times and I was delighted with this little stash. The tea towel has already become Tallow's Easter present and I have plans for some cushions and bunting next.
Now I promised I didn't need any more Pyrex but this cute pair were to lovely to leave behind. And besides they are perfect for winter cooking!
On my thrift wish list right now is a mid century style lounge, a vintage mirror and an old bath to plant herbs in. The perfect pair of jeans would be wonderful too!
