9 #thriftscorethursday Tiles, Tiles and more tiles

Welcome back to #thriftscorethursday. We're so glad you're here. In case you missed the memo a few weeks ago, Brynne and I have two new-ish co-hosts with us and we're thrilled they're just as nutty as we are about thrift stores.

Oh and my score this week doesn't produce drop-dead gorgeous photos-- but the project I have in store to use is going to rock my socks.

#thriftscorethursday Week 41 | Trisha from Black and White Obsession, Brynne's from The Gathered Home, Cassie from Primitive and Proper, Corinna from For My Love Of, and Guest Poster: Kyla from House Of Hipsters

Here's the deal yo: Brynne from The Gathered Home, Cassie from Primitive and Proper, and Corinna from For My Love Of,  along with our surprise guest poster: Kyla from House Of Hipsters, invite you to play along with our little Instagram party. Simply snap a pic of your thrifted treasure(s) and throw the #thriftscorethursday hashtag so we can all marvel at your goodies.
We shall begin with the features:
Hands down, this Brass Dear head Emily scored, just cemented it's way into my top favorite #thriftscorethursdays EVER!!

I mean it's got the perfect amount of vintage to it as well as the asymmetrical horns. Someone get me a bucket because I'm DROOOOOOLING!!

Sarah is one of my favorite designers/bloggers and to have her play along with the thriftscorethursday challenge is such a treat. And she never fails to impress- I mean look at the Amvet Chair is so pretty right down to the lines. Probably one of the biggest jaw droppers was the price- $5. For real. Too bad the fabric is in rough shape, but I'm sure Sarah's going to add some flair to bring it back to it's glory days!

P.S. She also scored a bunch of other oogle-worthy goodies that you can see here.
Those bowls, if you squint, they kinda match my black and gold tumblers. And that brass beauty, reminds me of Aladdin and shortly thereafter, Christina Aguilera- I'm a genie in a bottle...

And we'll close this post off with my finds:

I've gotta admit, these tiles weren't the easiest to photograph in a pretty setting. Also it was -40 bagillion degrees out yesterday when I decided to snap the photo.

Anyway, we were lucky enough to score at least two boxes each of the black ones, the grey slate ones, and the tan ones with the brown edge for FREE at the end this year's annual town yardsale. I managed to haul one of the eight or nine boxes over for this shot since my fingers were about to freeze off.

Then, the thrift store gods shinned brightly down on the MIL. She picked up every single box she could grab (which was about six) of the white tiles in both the 4x4 and 6x6 as well as the end caps and trim pieces for a mere $2.46 per box. She refused payment from us and instead gifted them to us for installing some flooring for her. It's like she cranked up the ESP because I was looking for 4x4 white ones not a week earlier at the hardware store.

I CANNOT wait to see my, now free (we have grout and thinset from previous projects), idea come to fruition. All I can say is it involves black and white. Duh.

Keep your fingers crossed that we've stockpiled enough tiles to finish the job. We're not sure what to do with the other two tile styles but one project at a time right?!

Well that’s all for week 41, my dearies! We thoroughly enjoy scrolling through your entries every week and hope to see your thrifted treasures. It’s pretty easy to play along:
