Hey you guys! Welcome to Thrift Score Thursday! I just got back in town from an incredible whirlwind trip to Memphis with Ace Hardware and Amy Howard – you will definitely be hearing more about it soon! I hope your week has been full of fantastic things as well!
Even though the temperatures in Dallas haven’t gotten hip to the whole “fall” thing quite yet, I’ve been so inspired by all the other bloggers gorgeous fall decor that I had to switch up my entryway console table just a bit…
This French needlepoint is one of my favorite thrifted pieces of art for convoluted humor reasons… You can read all about The Original Couch Floozy right here. The colors also happen to be perfect for fall!
The huge green book was a long ago thrift store find that not only has fabulous aerial photographs inside, but also makes an incredible prop. You’ve probably seen it in my photos tons of times – I literally can’t vignette without it.

The wooden bowl was a hand-me-down from my mom and I filled it with moss rocks left over from my DIY Succulent Rock Garden Centerpiece. Add a little fake succulent in an old Tequila bottle, one of my favorite Voluspa candles, oh, and…
Today’s official thrift score:
This fan-freaking-tastic vintage brass obelisk!
I couldn’t help myself. It was outside of my normal thrifting decor budget (okay, fine, it was $15… I know, I’m such a cheapskate), but I knew I would eternally regret leaving it behind (okay, fine, I may be exaggerating slightly, but “thrifter’s remorse” is no joke, you guys). So I was pleasantly surprised when I brought it up and they rang it up for me for $11!
It’s marked “Decorative Crafts Incorporated” on the bottom, but that hasn’t really helped me track down any information on it, although this set of 4 identical brass obelisks sold on 1st Dibs, presumably for all the money!
Talk about an instant collection! Jennifer (jenniferdimplesandtangles) popped into a neighborhood estate sale and found TWELVE fox and lamb silver plated salt cellars – how adorable are these?! If she’s going to part with any, I call dibs!
This framed African textile Suzy (winkwinkstudio) found at a local consignment shop is 7′ by 4′ and absolute perfection in this spot over the sofa. I am all about oversized statement art, the more unique the better!
You know what we don’t see enough of these days? Tension pole lamps like this stunning brass Mid Century find Anna (annabode) snapped up on her local Craigslist. I’m not sure why this trend faded away, but I vote it be revived STAT!
Meet my newest favorite Instagram feed: Doug (doug_fritock) posts the most fun and fabulous thrift and vintage finds! I absolutely love this sunny nook he shared featuring a recent Craigslist-score Vatne Mobler Mid Century lounge chair and ottoman. (Spoiler alert: the Anthropologie rug was also a Craigslist find!)
