Before I launch into Thrift Score Thursday mode, I just want to add a little personal note to things: Life has been really hectic and chaotic around these parts, and I'm sorry I haven't been updating the blog regularly with projects and ideas. Things like a breakup, a new job, planning new adventures, life changes... They are all overpowering at times and I just haven't had time to do anything crafty, let alone take pictures of the craftiness and tell you all about it. There are some announcements that I need to make, but I have a whole post planned for them. I just want to apologize that the past 5 posts have only been about Thrift Score Thursday. I hope you don't mind, because I absolutely LOVE this series! I do have a personal post planned for next week, so until then, sit tight and enjoy this week's amazingly thrifty finds! Let's be honest, I'm pretty sure this is my new favorite day of the week. Onward!
1. Take a photo of something you see or purchased at a thrift store, consignment shop, garage sale, Craigslist, or anywhere else secondhand.
2. Post your photo on Instagram and/or Twitter, any day of the week!
3. On your photo post, include the hashtag #thriftscorethursday.
4. Each Thursday morning, your hosts The Gathered Home and Black and White Obsession and I will share our favorites of the week! This means you should be posting photos throughout the week, so we can gather up our favorites to share on Thursday.
And now it's show-and-tell time. My favorite thrifty find this Thursday is from Instagram user @tskfinds, who has loyally been sharing many of her finds for the past few weeks!
I have no idea what this is for, but it is AMAZING and I want one! I have a thing for gold, obviously, and this cruet reminds me of the carafe I found way back when I posted about a thrifting road trip. I think it would look super smart next to it in a hutch some day. In case you don't know what I'm talking about, here's a photo of the carafe I found months ago.
Shouldn't they be friends?! I think so.
My find this week is from several years ago, probably one of my very first thrifty finds back when I was shopping for my first post-college apartment. I was really into owls then (who wasn't?) so when I saw this couple at an antique store, I had to have them. I consider them to be husband and wife, of course. Mr. and Mrs. Owl, meet my readers. Rental Revival readers, meet Mr. and Mrs. Owl.
I imagine Mr. Owl (the one on the left) wore a nice little tux to their wedding, and Mrs. Owl had a flower in her feathers. ...Wait, is this getting weird?
They always have a nice little place in my home, and give off a little nostalgic vibe for me. Love those little guys.
