Vacation Thrifting



Hello again! It's been a while since I've posted! I came down with pneumonia which wasn't fun at all. I have literally gotten the flu twice this year and now pneumonia! oh my goodness!

We left for our vacation to Florida about a week after I had gotten my pneumonia diagnosis. Thankfully my antibiotics and inhaler helped me get a lot better before we left for our trip.

 Along the way down to Florida I couldn't help but do a little thrifting, and today I'm going to share with you a few of the treasures that I found.


In a thrift shop in Kentucky I spotted this sweet vintage print among the wall art.


The cherubs are so sweet and I love the many different types and colors of flowers throughout the print.


I have it propped up on my pink piano for now. I may move this print to the library in the future. I think the  colors would look gorgeous with the medallion I just painted and installed in there. If you missed that post you can find the link here.


I'm trying to add a bit more blue to the house. without fully committing to a major change such as painting a wall. Adding a sweet vintage picture like this and the blue garden chair at the piano, help me achieve that without going overboard.


My next and most expensive treasure that I purchased was actually at the same thrift store as the cherub print.


As soon as I saw this set of delicate china stacked among the mis-matched plates and mugs, I knew it must come home with me.


I seriously fell in love with its golden floral swag edging and soft pink fluffy roses the circle around each plate.


This set is old. I researched the marking on the back and learned that they were produced between 1930 and 1935.





I was elated that it was a large set, complete with soup bowls, dinner, salad, and dessert plates. It even came with a large serving platter! I can't wait to set a pretty table with these beauties.


My next treasures are a bit sentimental. I found four tea cups and saucers at another thrift store in Kentucky.


They are so special to me because my grandparents had this same set. I actually had three platters from them at one time and I absolutely loved them. I hung the platters on the wall to display them and  they all fell off and broke!


Now I only have the two bowls left which you can see behind the tea cups.


I think this set is so pretty and hopefully I can gradually add more to my collection over time.



My very last find came from an antique store in Albers, Illinois.
 I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this beautiful Madonna....and that her price tag said FIVE DOLLARS!


I snatched her up so quick! I cleaned her up a bit and soon she will probably be displayed In my home chapel.



She's amazing isn't she?


I hope you had fun seeing some of my thrifted treasures! Thank you for stopping by!
