6 #thriftscorethursday Glass Obsession

Guess what day it is? Hint: one more day until Friday.

So it's Thursday which means it’s time for #thriftscorethursday!! Are you as pumped as I am?

Your hosts Brynne from The Gathered Home, Megan from Rental Revival and I are summoning YOU to hunt. To hunt for interesting, funny, or beautiful pieces around your local thrift stores, yard sales, estate sales, dumpster dives, Mr. Craig and his list, or anywhere secondhand! So grab your camera (or cell phone), head to your shops, and show off your treasures using the #thriftscorethursday on Instagram or #thriftscorethursday on Twitter. 
#thriftscorethursday Week 5 | Trisha from Black and White Obsession, Brynne's from The Gathered Home, and Megan from Rental Revival

Let’s begin with this week’s features shall we?

#thriftscorethursday Week 5 | TSFinds Clover Tables
Heart their photo or give her a follow here.

Too bad TSFinds had to leave those retro drawers, I mean cutie-pie tables behind!! I’d have the perfect spot for those bad boys next to my bed!! In the magical world of thrifting, maybe I’ll find a set like that someday!

#thriftscorethursday Week 5 | The Glittered Barn LLC’s Ornate Console
Heart their photo or give them a follow here.

And my girl from The Glittered Barn shows off her ornate piece. If she’s anything like me, she can’t leave it well enough alone. Here’s to hoping she pops in and shares the after photo- if she scooped it up that is!!

Even though my favorites were of the furniture kind this week, I wanted to boast about the latest finds to add to my glass obsession:
#thriftscorethursday Week 5 | Glass Obsession, Ceramic Plates and a Black and White Striped Mug
Heart the photo and/or follow along here.

Somehow I managed to convince the beau that these pieces needed to find their way to our home. You see we have this running predicament where he mean-mugs all my thrifty treasures but when he brings home scrap wood, I don’t bat an eye. Sensing a pattern? We’ll have to work on that balance, eh?

Anywho, I convinced the both of us that these pieces were perfect for Food Photography in the future (sort of like this post), or even some much needed splashes of color to our tablescapes (like this post). All the pieces were well under $1 each and the navy blue one- even has a twin brother.

That black and white striped mug… gah I cannot wait to make some hot cocoa in it:

And at just 25 cents, I couldn’t leave that baby behind.

All of the plates are of the heavy weight kind, not heavy weight wrestler champion style, but the built-well ceramic kind. And this red one, oh how I adore the starburst style texture and the square shape:

Sad thing is, we're just scratching the surface on my glass obsession, folks! So let this be fair warning for further #thriftscorethursday Glass Obsessions!

  1. I love your finds - that mug especially is just too darling! (Don't even get my starting on my plate hoarding habit!)

    1. Phew, I'm not the only one. This is actually a recent hoard- I used to focus my energy on clear glass pieces. They're sitting by their sad lonesome selves in a box, in storage. They will have their turn at glory someday!

  2. awesome finds love the features too

  3. Hi Trisha,

    "Thrift Score Thursday" sounds like a fun idea! I can't wait to see more of your great finds. I think I'll participate next time! I'm going to add #thriftscorethursday to my calendar so I don't forget.

    Peace, Love and Joy,

  4. Hi Joyce,

    The Instagram/Twitter party is a whole lot of fun. Lots of mingling and thirfty goodness! I hope you have as much fun as we do!!
