Well we made it through Monday, girls! There's a big ice and snow storm headed toward Wichita and I'm keepin' my fingers crossed for no work tomorrow ... ha in my dreams!
Anyway, I was inspired by this and this post by the fantastic Urban Farmgirl to do some extra-focused thrifting. I pop into my local thrift store once or twice a week but usually just breeze through in a hurry. After seeing the fabulous things she came upon, I was determined to look at my thrift store with new eyes. And I do believe I scored!
I came home with this big wicker basket I think I'll use as a trashcan or a holder for wrapping paper.
The canisters are quite new, but I paid a total of $4 for all three and I think they're gorgeous! Perfect for our bathroom someday. My mom said she saw a similar set from Restoration Hardware. There's no clue as to where they came from anywhere on the canisters, but I think they were a pretty great thrifting score!
And I fell absolutely in love with these three vintage books. That top one stole my heart with its gorgeous cover graphics, not to mention it's full of sweet poems and various readings. The middle one is a pretty pale blue and has an old inscription between friends written inside the cover. And the bottom book is a compilations of literary school readings printed in 1910!
I think I did pretty well, right? It just shows it pays to thrift...
