Thrift Share Monday's - May 23

Don't forget to check out my giveaway (see bag to the  right -->)

Oh my! My thrifting week wasn't as jammed packed as it's been the last couple of weeks, but I did manage some small finds.

I am loving these snack, luncheon plates!

This pack of moving post cards are soo cute, I couldn't pass them up. Too bad I'm not planning on moving anytime soon.

I've been holding this super fab Pyrex hostage (only a few weeks), and I've failed to mention it in my other post. I know. Shame on me. 

This is from the previous week, but I couldn't bring myself to mention I'm sad to say (insert Taps here) there were three of these, oh so awesome, green and black cups, but (sniff) two of them leaped off their saucers and....and....I can't say it. Now there is one. May the other two rest in peace.

See? I told you I had a slow week. This is with three Estate sales, a church rummage sale, and one garage sale. Maybe I wasn't in the mood. Who knows what happened. Maybe I know I have soo much that I've already bought that I haven't listed (but there is soo much I don't want to let go) I unconsciously made myself not find anything.

Maybe it's one thing or the other? There's plenty of times I've been out scoring a whole bunch of kitchen items with no vintage sheet luck, but this week I have had some vintage sheet love. I've scored several super nice sheets with lots of color coverage. So I can't complain too much.

So why do I keep on buying these vintage sheets? I have bought dozens upon dozens of them them, and have sold very little. Do I need an intervention? It definitely has kept me from buying regular fabric which of course is much more I guess I'm saving money...kinda...sorta...maybe, but not really. I guess it makes me happy. The colors are comforting in a way which is really weird because most are pastels and pastels are colors that aren't high on my color list. Oh well like I said they make me happy.

Don't forget May Giveaway Day starts today, May 23, click here for the details and my giveaway.

  1. How gorgeous are those sheets! And I love the pyrex...Lovely!

  2. The sheets are beautiful- I would make skirts from them :-)

  3. RIP cups...we all feel for you. Console yourself with your vintage sheets, they'll always be with you.

  4. I really love the Pyrex! That is an awesome find. The sheets are beautiful and I also like the green and black mugs. May the other two rest in peace. But my favorite treasure you found are the We've moved cards! I'm a sucker for those. I just love older style greeting cards of any type. Thanks for sharing your thrifts.
