~ Thrifting finds ~

            
Hi friends      
Today was a great thrifting day! 
I went to a thriftstore this morning called Value Village and found some shabby pretties....
 

Sometimes thrifting can be disappointing when all you see is 80's furniture / collectibles or things that are way over priced...
But luckily that was not the case today.....
 

I found antique cups for only a few dollars a piece...
an old shabby floral trivet...crown pin...the perfect bohemian style white crocheted bag..and a few other treasures....
 

All in the same colour palette...pretty soft pastels which I love.....
I only spent $21.00
A great thrifting day! 
The millinery flowers I bought from Whimsical Whites today...love them too.
 

Also.....
 HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my beautiful friend Tausha!!!
(I hope your gift arrived today)

Have a wonderful weekend everyone! 
xo,
Rachel

Rachel, I love how your little cups have feet! So pretty and sweet! The cup with the little golden daisies is so exquisite.

I need to go to whimsical whites one day.

I hope Tausha's spirit has mended. I think of her often.
So blessed to be your blog friend!

Hi Rachel~
Love all your treasures and oh my, you did so good with so little spending. Being frugal has been a way of life for my family and I. That bohemian bag is so cool along with the plate and regal crown brooch, lovin them big time! I hope Tausha had the best birthday ever! I just received my second dreamcatcher on Thursday and it's GORGEOUS! It's so wonderful to see her following her passions and being happy once again isn't it!
Hugs~ Steph
