I love shiny things, don’t you?
Duh, who doesn’t, right?
Well I have a slew of shiny for you today, my friends.
This week I got busy looking for shiny, though I didn’t actually mean to. I just thought I’d hit up some of my favourite thrift shops, and I happened to get quite lucky! Here are some of my best finds this week:
The fact that there was a fourth brass candlestick, and that it was $1.99 was really just a happy incident, and though I didn’t need that fourth one, I got it anyway. I also bought a bag full of candles, so all candlesticks have candles and are ready to be put to use all over the house. I mean business!
Don’t let this be an indicator that my excitement for the candlesticks wasn’t real, but the real “Oh my gosh I can’t believe this is here” moment came just yesterday when I found this little mirrored tray that was literally jumping out and asking me to take her home. Yes, her. She’s totes classy and brassy with a touch of lucite and I am in L.O.V.E.
The milk glass vase was $0.99. No brainer. I obviously had to get it. The tray? $4.99. Ridiculous! I added some fresh roses to the vase, and these glasses I bought at Target back in January for a whole $3 (yes, for both), and I swear I heard angels sing.
Now let’s be honest, these photos were staged just to show you the goods, but I did actually put them to use around the house!
Now I don’t have a home for the glass candlesticks or the extra brass one as of yet, but I’m sure it’s coming.
Any cool thrifted finds in your neck of the woods lately? Do share! You know I love a good thrifting story!
