The thrifting Gods have been nice to me again this month. Now that we have stocked the flat with everything we need I concentrate more on things that will make it feel more rounded and finished when I go for a thrifting stroll.
I always love dainty tea cups when I see them yet never know what to do with them, being a hand-potted sturdy mug girl myself. I still have no idea where these two beauties will end up but they don’t take much space and make a nice display for all the small things like dice and walnuts and acorns and buttons. And aren’t the autumn colours of the yarn lovely?
Speaking of buttons I grabbed a bag of buttons on one of my hunts lately, together with a bag of trim leftovers. Honestly craft supplies are one of my favourite – no, my favourite – thing to thrift for.
I saw this rose fabric – with little black dots, so the print was probably supposed to be cross-stitched over – some day, picked it up and said to myself “I’d take it for two euros”, only to look at the tag to find it was only one, so it came home with me. I think it might make a nice border-printed skirt, maybe for Dolly or Classic Lolita purposes.
I’m also still collecting silverware for my first forays into jewelery-making. The next thing on my shopping list are the tools but I can hardly resist pretty pieces.
This brooch was a curious one, it’s a pressed pansy preserved in what looks like acrylic. And last but not least there’s this beautiful lacy tablecloth that asked me to become part of my faerie wardrobe some day.
How was your thrifting luck this November? I’d love to hear about your treasures in the comments!
