Thrifting Weekend

It was a thrifting weekend for me.  I started with the Scott's
Antique Market which was in town for the last time until November.  
From there, I went to Goodwill.  Then on the way to an out of town
birthday party, my sister found a couple more antique stores to visit and
I ended the weekend with a stop at another Goodwill yesterday.  
I found things at every place I went, but just wanted to share a couple
today.  This is a lovely round vintage table cloth with cross-stitch.

My sister noticed it and talked me into it, so it's all her fault, but  I'm so glad she did
because I just love it now.  I have a nice collection of aqua things to sell
at the Open House, so it will make a nice piece to display them on.  It is
very simple, which is what I like, and has a nice edge to it.

I grouped it with some aqua plates that I'll be selling and some fabric
I bought at JoAnn's to make matching napkins out of.  I love the colors in
this little print and it has a vintage look to it while being new.

Lastly I added a vintage turquoise Ball jar which I picked up this weekend.
I already have a nice collection of them to sell, but this one has a
rusty handle on it, making it a little more unique.

Sorry ~ faux flowers again ~ still nothing much blooming here yet.

I think aqua is fast becoming my new favorite color, right after pink.

Oooohhhhh...that is really pretty! Aren't you glad your sister talked you into that one?? Looks great with the other aqua pieces! I wanted to get to Scott's this weekennd and I was in town but there was just not enough time to do everything. Now I have to wait till November:( I am sure there will be plenty other places to shop at till then!~Hugs, Patti

Aqua is becoming my favorite color too the more I see it the more I want it in my home. Beautiful things you have.

I would have never known those were fake flowers if you hadn't mentioned it. I love all your aqua. Sounds like you had a productive weekend!

Yum, two things I adore...a ball jar and anything turquoise.

Hi! I found you at Table Top Tuesday. I think this might be the prettiest post I have ever seen. Love the aqua...especially the Ball jar with flowers. I just bought some of those jars on eBay and the day they came I felt like I had hit the jackpot! I'm your newest follower...come visit me if you have time. ~Ann

Such pretty aqua colors! I really need to get one of those Ball jars. I have two clear jars but not an aqua one. Seems everyone has them but me!

Susan said...

I really love Good Will!

Amanda said...

I love your aquas and how everything works so well together! You are going to have a most lovely vintage display! Your pictures are beautiful and really the faux flowers look great...I wouldn't have guessed they weren't real had you not mentioned it! I am happily following you!
Best Wishes and Blessings,

Those are good fakes!! I didn't even notice until you pointed it out....I only noticed how simple and gorgeous that aqua Ball jar looked with 'wild flowers' in it! :)

I just love thrifting! The thrill of what you might find combined with how big of a steal will it's so much fun. Your table cloth is gorgeous. :)

I would not have thought to use one of those antique Ball jars as a flower vase, but now that I've seen yours, I'm going to do the same. So beautiful!

Patti said...

I am beginning to like that color, your finds!

I think this is just beautiful! all of it...and I also didn't know the flowers were not real until I read your comment and looked are good at arranging them and that is what did the trick! I really like those ball jars too and that table cloth is amazing...great find.
