Hey you guys! Happy Thrift Score Thursday! At the risk of sounding like a broken record, I was truly blown away by all the awesomeness in the #thriftscorethursday Instagram feed this week, which you will see reflected in some extra features below. Wow. Just wow!
Earlier this week, I shared the next installment of The ABC’s of Gathering: D is for Dine and in that post you got to see this spring succulent tablescape that I pulled together with vintage and thrift store finds…
I had some other pretty pictures of the table setting that didn’t make it into that post, so I decided to share a few more details with you today!
The “tablecloth” is actually a vintage bed-sheet (previously repurposed as a curtain panel here). I absolutely love the floral + bird design on the rich green background, so you can imagine my delight when I actually found another sheet with the exact same pattern – only this new one is a queen size and seems to have never been used, based on its crispness and extremely vibrant colors! So I can have my curtains AND use the new one as a tablecloth – win-win!
I found the floral napkins as a set of 6 at a thrift store in Dallas, and I also have six of the Fitz and Floyd coral-rimmed salad/dessert plates, but sadly just the one cream-colored plate with that lovely delicate lacy border design. You know I’m keeping my eyes out for more!
And I shared my little pots with peaches on the lids with you back on Thrift Score Thursday 79 – they belonged to my great great aunt and I carefully brought them home with me after visiting my grandparents this summer. They usually sit on my bedside table holding bobby pins and hair bands, but I absolutely love how they look with these fabrics, dishes, and some pretty faux succulents! Again, I will absolutely have to track down more so I can set a full table with them!
As I mentioned earlier, I couldn’t resist picking some extra features from the #thriftscorethursday feed this week! In fact, you’ll find twice as many as usual… Keep up the amazing submissions, you guys!
The lovely ladies of @littleyellowcouch shared this fab lamp makeover – some white spray paint and recovering + decorating the shade with gold fabric paint totally transformed this weathervane lamp!
Elizabeth Rose (@elizabethrosedesigns_) hit the brass jackpot on a recent thrifting excursion to my old stomping grounds, Houston, TX! I grew up in a little town north west of Houston and, get this: my family had pet llamas growing up and those brass bookends down there look an awful lot like our grumpy but much-loved llama “Albert.”
As you can imagine, I’m pretty much in love with her finds and even a little bit proud of my hometown for providing her with these treasures!
Thrifted art is always a winner in my book, and the colors in this water color piece found by Jess (@hereandnowgoods) are just incredible!
I finally acquired my own long-awaited vintage ceramic zebra (see her in my living room tour here) after months of searching eBay. Wouldn’t you know, Jennifer (@jenc184) just found practically her twin at an estate sale, also labeled “Tilso Japan” underneath!
Check out all the thrifted goodness in this shot of Jessica’s (@honeynhydrangea) kitchen shelves! I can’t take my eyes off that beautiful painting – art in the kitchen is such a good idea!
Last Thrift Score Thursday was Saint Patrick’s Day and Jess (@domicile37) shared the most perfect find for the occasion – she found this solid brass four leaf clover for only $1! Talk about luck!
Julie (@julieaspear) shared two beautiful marble finds, making me determined to add some marble animals to my mainly-brass menagerie! See the lion in the background? Love these!
Finally, feast your eyes on this beautiful shot from Kim (@_kim_wilson), spotlighting that stunning thrifted wall hanging, brass lamp, and macrame plant hanger… Delicious!
We want YOU to join in on our fun little party!
Here’s how… Simply post a picture of any recent thrifty find on Instagram using #thriftscorethursday!

So please understand that by linking up with #thriftscorethursday, you are giving us permission to share your finds via social media or on our blogs.
- Please note that we can only see photos shared by public accounts, so if you have a private Instagram account and we haven’t been showering your finds with love, it’s simply because we aren’t able to see them.
