Thrift BLISS!

Colour me happy :)....
I had the most perfectly thrifty morning! Oh, Colour love...
Oh thrift love...
Oh Cotton love...
Oh crockery love...

3o plus reels of cotton for £2 from a local 'Table Top Sale' (i also thrifted some books and a lemon squeezer but they didn't seem so worthy of photographic attentions)

Then onto my local Recycling Centre and i bought a BIG cardboard box full of lovely mix and match tea cups (there is a party being planned - in the vein of 'Alice', not that i need an excuse to buy pretty tea items)


I just fell in love with this little sugar bowl and cream / milk jug...
"What do you need all these for?" asks the man...
"What has 'need' got to do with shopping for crockery?" replies that Crafty Fish...
He did at least concede, that the sewing threads were a bargain - a thrifty treasure! and also very pretty all jumbled up together.

P.S the cutest little 'Tie one on' apron "made in Wales" it says, only 10p! and SmallFish tried it on as soon as we got home.

I had to share all this with you immediately, firstly because i know you would appreciate these finds too... secondly because i have new posts to share soon (involving thrifted furniture and colourful gloss paint) x

back soon..... x

A very fine morning!
I love the excitement of thrifty finds. The pinny is a gem. When I spot things like that in a charity shop I go a bit bonkers and everything goes a bit slow-mo as I try and calmly get to whatever it is peeking at me whilst imagining that the whole shop, street, town has also spotted it at the same moment and is descending on ot too! Of course it's usually just me and no-one has even noticed! It's very exciting though!

Very excited to see what will become of the crockery and the alice party...

Wow Fab finds.

I'm planning a Mad Hatters Tea Party for my 30th in July and am squirelling away charity shop tea pots and cake stands like nobodies business. I hadn't thought of the recycling centre though!

Good luck with your Alice Party!

thrift love is a special kind of love; uncovering treasures, wonder at why no one else wants this or that and sheer delight that it now belongs to me!

KirstyFish said...

so true!
I got bought a new coat (for alot of money!) it is beautiful BUT the joy at these finds was far greater inall honesty x

Crafty Koala said...

Thanks Kirsty, I'll head to Towcester! Can't wait for more blogging about Alice and if I spot anything that I think would be helpful to you, I'll let you know.
