But before we head off to the thrift store treasures ahead, I made a big announcement yesterday (in case you missed it):
Introducing Outside [the Box] Link Party, a place for even MORE inspiration in the form of DIY, Crafts, Tutorials, Seasonal, Printables, and Craft Projects. Hope to see you there!
This week our surprise guest host is Emily from Go Haus Go, and she’s the pro at balancing light and dark colors. I want every room in her house just for me! Although by now, I’d have probably 10 houses filled with blogger designed rooms!
Alright, so If you’re new here (howdy!) Brynne from The Gathered Home and I (who am I kidding, mostly Brynne) created this challenge to share our passion for thrifting with the Internet.
In other words, please accept our invitation to the best hashtag party around. Just snag a shot of your thrifted find and slap the #thriftscorethursday on Instagram. Then get ready to be jealous over everyone’s thrifted finds.
This week’s features.
I hope that by now you’d see that my favorites vary quite a bit every week. But the one thing you can pretty much guarantee is anything black and white, or close to it will steal my heart (shocking I know!!). Just like these Vintage Pyrex bowls:
Sure they’re not exactly black and white, but they sure are pretty. How often do you really come across such a dark set of bakeware, let alone a VINTAGE set? All I know is Melissa did well this week. Very well indeed.
Be sure to stop by her Instagram for PLENTY more Pyrex finds!!
When I saw this gem from Amber, it reminded me of one I spotted at Hobby Lobby a while back. Come to read all about her dresser and that Pottery Barn Sells it for $999. Jaw Dropping I know. Cheah, she got a heck-of-a-deal at $65- and she probably has no regrets that she painted it to fit her style. I’m sure spending $999, there would have been some hesitation.
Lastly, I couldn’t let this one slip by:
Perfect amount of creep, don’t you think?! Psht, Lea was worried she brought it out too soon for Halloween. As long as it’s after Labor Day, I say fare game!
And now for my “find” this week:
Thrifting while intentionally leaving your wallet at home is absolute torture I tell you. A few tears may have been shed after leaving this tall + skinny beauty behind. I mean just look at those knobs?! It’d be a cold day in h-e-double-hockey-stick if I were to give those beasts up- you know if I would have ponied up the dough for this gal!! But then again the steep (for a cheap-o like me) $65, I guess my wallet thanked me…
Until I opened the drawer and saw this:
However those knobs they’re another story. It seems as though they are highly sought after. Have you seen a piece like this and can point me in more directions to the origin? I am beyond curious and exhausted my search capabilities...
Needless to say, I'm severely regretting leaving Giselle behind. But it's all part of the thrifting game.
Update: and its Brynne for the win, she found this old brochure online. This tall lady is Broyhill's Lingerie Chest.
Well that’s all for week 32, my dearies! Please tell me you’ll follow along with us?! It’s crazy easy to play along my friends:
- Snap a photo of something that catches your eye or you decided to splurge on from anyplace secondhand (Craigslist, Thrift Stores, Auctions etc).
- Share your photo with the hashtag #thriftscorethursday on Instagram (if your profile is public) and/or Twitter, any day of the week!
Do you have a mad obsession with vintage knobs? When do you drag out your Halloween goodies?
