Welcome to #thriftscorethursday!
Joining us this week as our lovely guest host is Stephanie from Sandpaper & Glue! Stephanie is a #thriftscorethursday veteran and has a soft spot for animal statuary like me – you might remember her awesome (and huge) moose statue or this incredible panther planter she shared. She’s also been instagramming some amazing vintage cameras lately, so I can’t wait to pop over and visit her post today!
Are you new to #thriftscorethursday? It’s easy to join the fun!

Gretchen from Boxy Colonial (Instagram: boxycolonial) found not one but two incredible oil painting seascapes. I’m incredibly jealous of the first one – I love how thick and textural those waves are! I can’t wait to see how she uses them in her home!
Speaking of lions… Shannon (Instagram: shannonlat) posted this awesome brass lion that I’m pretty sure needs to become bffs with the buffalo I shared last week… Lions and buffalos and brass animals, oh my! I’m going to start a checklist of all the different kinds of brass animals that are out there – I mean, are there badgers? Flamingos? Anteaters? What fabulous specimens do I need to seek out and add to my menagerie next?!
Well, first of all, the photos of my #thriftscorethursday find this week were shot inside of another find that I revealed to my Instagram followers… (Ahem: go follow me there if you haven’t already.)
The chippy metal barrister case made a fun backdrop for this fall-themed cake stand I found at Goodwill last week.
I don’t think the stand is anything particularly special, but I thought the acorn motif was perfect for the season and it just might inspire me to whip up an autumnal cake and/or tablescape…
So first of all – what should I bake? And second, what have you found recently? Share with the class!
