Impromptu Thrift Store Visit

I love shopping at thrift stores!  There's something about it that always feels like a treasure hunt and I've written before about my favourite thrift store tips.  While I was looking for something specific during this trip, I ended up coming home with two other small treasures.

As many of you know, our wedding centerpieces are going to be a mix of succulents and cacti planted in vintage glass and milk glass, which I mentioned in this post.  I was also hoping to add some fresh cut flowers in vases to fill each table.

Well, I recently ordered flowers in white and green from Bunches Direct and I decided to look online for fun ways to arrange them.  I loved some of the photos I found of flowers arranged in milk glass vases (I'm afraid I was unable to track the original source of either of these two pictures.) and I decided to see if I could find some more.

I had a few already but I added to my collection and I now have a nice assortment for the wedding.  I can't wait to see what they look like with flowers.

Remember when we styled our living room gallery wall last year?  We had always assumed that we'd add to it over time.

I found this little painting which makes me want to travel to Greece.

It was only three dollars and I figured I could always recycle the frame if I ended up hating the picture.

But I think it goes quite nicely in our living room.

And we came home with one final purchase.  I know I've posted a few pictures in the past of my nightstand (photo below) but lately, I've been finding that it gets too cluttered.

I found this pretty little candy dish (on the right) which sparkled like new after a trip through the dishwasher.

Now I have a place to put my hair elastics, chapstick and even jewelry.

I think our bill came to about $18.  Not too shabby!  It also makes me want to sing this song...

I'm gonna pop some tags
Only got twenty dollars in my pocket
I'm I'm I'm hunting, looking for a come-up
This is f%$#ing awesome!
