winter thrifting


I drifted into our local thrift store yesterday to score a cheap double boiler (success = $1.49) for some gifties we are going to whip up this weekend. Of course, after I wandered through the kitchen supply aisle, I couldn't help but wander through the rest of the store. I found some cozy pajama pants for the kids, and this dish and quilt.

The dish is fast becoming one of my most favorite finds. I love how all of the mid-century shapes look like actual things (chairs and tables), but when I look closer they are just nifty little designs. Or, maybe they are actual things? See? Love.

And, the quilt will be a cozy addition to Chick's bed. It needs some repairing, which I think I'll do while we are traveling at the end of the month. It will be a nice project to keep me busy and warm while we visit with family and friends.

  1. Can I please, please, please come to this thrift store with you? Our local Salvation Army doesn't come anywhere close. I have dreams of finding something as quaint and charming as the things you post here.

    Funny, I look at that dish and see needles and spools of thread. It's a mid-century Rorschach!
