monday = thrifted

My weekend was a thrifting bust! I thought there was a rummage sale but it turns out its this coming weekend, so while I was pretty devastated Saturday morning at 7am now I’m exciting looking forward to it.

Without any sales to go to I actually crafted…I know, hard to believe! I’ve been in a slump lately and it was starting to freak me out a little bit. But over the weekend I think I got my mojo back {fingers crossed}.

I can’t show you what I finished because it’s a gift & I can’t show you progress on a previous WIP I shared because its also a gift…so you just have to trust me.

Since I don’t have anything thrifted from the weekend to share I took some photos around the house of previously thrifted items to show.

I call this one "house hunting":

{I bought the elf at an estate sale last year for 50 cents and the house pencil holder at an thrift shop years ago for 99 cents. I know how much it was because the price tag is still on the back! They sit on my desk by my computer.}

I titled this one “harmony” but really it should be “Buddha, an owl & a matador walk into a bar…”:

{The bisque owl is from an estate sale last year, $5. The Buddha was also from an estate sale, $7. And the matador mosaic is from a church sale years ago – if I recall correctly he was $10 or $12. This is the corner of our living room.}

And finally these cement mushrooms were from a couple weekends ago but I forgot to include them on a previous post.

{It was an estate sale, they were $10 and weigh about 50 lbs.}

aww, the only thing worse than getting the date of a rummage sale a week early is getting it a week late. so it could be worse. I love those mushrooms. I think shroomies are the best garden ornaments.

love the mushrooms! Reminds me of something I saw at Anthropologie for hundreds of dollars.

Glad you got some crafting done - I know what you mean when you say it was freaking you out a little - I get like that. Loving the shrooms!

It drives me nuts when they advertise a sale early--but here's hoping it will turn out to be worth waiting for!

Great photos! I think my parents have that same elf...
