Thrift Report: Color Me Happy

Happy Monday! Despite my best intentions, blogging is once again taking a back seat to work. Still, I thought I'd throw together a quick post on my thrify finds from the last week.

I picked up a quirky and colorful little collection of things at the Goodwill half-off sale this past weekend.

My faves are the super mod 1970s green arts and crafts book, and the rainbow colored, gold-framed LOVE needlepoint. 

Something about springtime, daffodils peeking through the soil, and lots of rain greening up the lawns makes me crave color. This funky little collection made me so happy.

Wishing you all a colorful and happy week! xoxo

Thrift Report: Back in the Groove

Hello friends! I've been on a blog hiatus recently due to a huge writing project for work, but I'm trying to get back into the swing of things. Last week was spring break on the campus where I work. Granted, as a staff member I don't actually get to observe the break, but at least it was quiet and peaceful in my office and I managed to get lots done!

On Friday, I rebelliously took the day off and hung out with my mom. We did some shopping and thrifting and lunching and all kinds of fun stuff, and I actually bought more inventory for the shop than I have in a long time. Here are some recent fave finds:

I happened to walk into a thrift just as a huge, mint condition collection of 1980s era Fiestaware was being unloaded. I snapped up the pieces above for the shop, as well as three turquoise dinner plates for my own personal collection. I use my mom's old 80s Fiestaware for my everyday dishes, but I've been short on dinner plates recently. Score!

I adore this cute little collection of vintage cabinet vases:

I've had two of them for a while, and just recently picked up the third. They're cute would they be as bud vases on a spring table?

And then there was this:

You guys know I have a vintage magazine rack problem. This is proof. that curlicue gold one makes me swoon.

And that's all I've had time to photograph, folks. Even though it's 20 degrees today, I can see my tulips popping up through the ground, so I know spring is on its way. And I always catch thrifting fever in spring, so that's something to look foward to!

Wishing everyone a wonderful and productive week!
