Fun Finds and a Winner...


I have a few fun thrift store finds to share this week...don't you love the colors of this embossed Dutch tin?



I found a couple of dainty linens for spring, too.



I love this quilted pillow sham~ the pale gray pattern on soft white... not sure if I'll use it as a sham or just for the pretty fabric...


This old cash book is so decorative~ from the impressed cover...



To the interior...


and page headings...
 

This BIG twig basket will be great holding pots in the garden or out in the porch this spring!


My favorite find this week is this great vintage lamp!  I love the combination of wood and woven, and with the right shade will add to the rustic farmhouse style I am adding to my decor!


I am always amazed at the goodies found in a thrift store...

Also today...I want to thank everyone who entered my Vintage Valentine giveaway over at Knick of Time!  Thanks so much, Angie!  You did a wonderful job of hosting!


The winner is Linda at Coastal Charm  and I am joining her this week at her Nifty Thrifty Tuesday

Until next time...
