7 #thriftscorethursday Hammered Copper Watering Can

Welcome, welcome, welcome! We’re about half way through April which means, at least here in the North, we’re thisclose to yard sale season! I simply cannot wait for those whole-town-yard-sales. Estate sales and thrift stores are wonderful, but let me out of the house, get my bartering shoes on, and dig for the real treasures already!

#thriftscorethursday Week 59 | 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: Paula from Virginia Sweet Pea

If you're new 'round here, welcome! My co-hosts Brynne from The Gathered Home, Cassie from Primitive and Proper, and Corinna from For My Love Of and I, invite you to play along with our fun hashtag party over on Instagram. The rules are simple: snap a pic of your thrifted treasure and throw the #thriftscorethursday hashtag so our hosts, followers, and amazing TST community can marvel at your goodies.

Occasionally, we're blessed to have a few of our favorite hashtag blogger friends guest hosting alongside us. This week, please give a warm welcome back to Paula from Virginia Sweet Pea! If you haven’t stopped over there in a while, you simply must see how she transformed her Ikea Rast Dresser into a patriotic beauty.

Let’s kick this party off with my find:

One night after work, I popped into one of my favorite thrift stores sans cash and spotted this beautiful hammered copper watering can. At $3.49, it was quite a bargain. I fell hard for that flat spout and the thin circular handle. Proving (yet again) leaving the wallet at home was a bad idea because when I went back for it, it was gone. Sad day.

And now for some much luckier features from our extremely talented #thriftscorethursday Instagram crowd:

As you probably already know, Sabrina is the QUEEN of killer furniture pieces. She has got SKILLS. I'm absolutely dying over this absolutely stunning geo credenza. It sort of reminds me of this west elm console, but Sabrina's is a gazillion times better.

Staci found this adorable set of vintage pastel ovens. Oh how I would have loved coming across these beauties for our Vintage Skylark Camper, but 1) San Diego is a bit of a stretch and 2) we already thrifted our oven. -I still owe you a BUNCH of posts as we've made quite a bit of progress these past couple weeks months.

And then there's Selina's delicious blue and white plates to close off this week's features. Admittedly, I've been a lot more cognizant of blue and white place settings and vases while out thrifting. Sadly most land out of my price range. 'Round here we have our fair share of the Currier and Ives China style.

Well that’s all for week 59, 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:
  1. Snap a photo of something that catches your eye or you decided to splurge on from anyplace secondhand (Craigslist, Thrift Stores, Auctions, Garage Sales, etc).
  2. Share your photo with the hashtag #thriftscorethursday on Instagram (if your profile is public) and/or Twitter, any day of the week!
*You could be featured next Thursday as your hosts Brynne, Cassie, Corinna, and I (+a surprise guest host) dish out our favorite scores every week.

  1. Don't you hate it when a great find gets away? That watering can would have been so perfect for spring and summer decorating.

    I love seeing the features each week and admit to getting a wee bit jealous of the great things that people find. Thanks so much for having me as a co-hostess this week.

  2. Aw man! What a shame! You'll have to stop leaving that wallet behind!

  3. i love your copper find, and i have to say futuristic human always blows me away!

  4. Love those plates! I keep wanting to put together a set of mismatched blue china, but it's proving to be a lot harder than it sounds!

    1. Oh Gretchen that sounds wonderful! Here's to hoping the Thrifting Gods are on your side this yard-sale season!!

  5. You and I both had some fab pieces slip away from us! Better luck next time! And I can't wait to see your camper progress - exciting!
