Okay friends, not to be a downer, but I just haven’t felt like getting back into the swing of things yet. We had to put our beloved cat Tiny Tina to sleep last weekend, very unexpectedly… On top of that, I was in a car accident on the way to the vet’s office – besides some neck and back pain, I’m totally fine, but I’ve been stuck at home without a vehicle lately.
To be honest, I haven’t been doing much lately but crashing on the couch, watching TV, and cuddling our other cat Abby. I don’t want to turn this into a pity party, but I wanted to share what’s been going on lately and why posts have been so scarce.
I still wanted to pull together a Thrift Score Thursday post, though. It’s like we have this standing date, coffee + catching up, and it’s definitely something I look forward to – getting to chat about the fun features from the #thriftscorethursday feed and our mutual (I’ll always assume) love for brass animals…
It was a few weeks ago now, but sometimes good things happen when you drop by that one thrift store you’ve written off in the past. These two brass antelopes (? gazelles?) were just sitting there waiting for me. One would have been a delightful and irresistible find, so stumbling across a pair was just the icing on the cake!
I plopped them down to the left of the TV when I found them and I’m really enjoying them there for now:
From the #thriftscorethursday feed on Instagram…
Chaney (@mayricherfullerbe) found this vintage china cabinet at a local thrift store for a steal. I love the mid-century lines and the details on the doors! Such a beautiful piece.
Isn’t this just the most darling craft spot? Cheri (@cheri_interieurs) brilliantly repurposed eight mismatched milk glass compotes to hold desk accessories.
I’m dying over this gorgeous vintage brass and marble desk lamp found by Jami (@secondhandglam) – only $4.99! Incredible.
Finally, here’s a fun followup – I always love seeing thrift scores in use!
Kristin recently completed her drop-dead gorgeous kitchen makeover and tagged this photo sharing where the sconces ended up. Holy cow, freaking amazing:
