Hello friends and welcome back to my nest, which feels a lot less empty when you visit.
A Special Hello to all my new Haven Mavens
I had a special visitor yesterday, but unfortunately I think a little child somewhere is very sad to have lost his/her buddy, or should I say budgie.
This beauty showed up to snack on my birdseed and take a bath.
Gorgeous colors...soft blue underbelly and a pale green and yellow upper body.
He went back and forth between the feeder and the ground.
He really blended in against the lilac leaves.
I hope he finds his way back to his home because I don't think he will survive a winter in the wild.
Ok...are you ready for my thrift shop treasures?
How much do you adore this pretty vintage tablecloth?
I have one that is almost identical, but I have apron plans for that one.
Now I have one to put on my table.
Since my kitchen colors are grey/yellow/white, this cloth is perfect.
Just look at the sweet copper teapot I found.
I love everything about this piece, the copper, the whimsical shape.
She is right out of a Disney movie!
Love the porcelain knob and handle.
And that spout.
Can I get an Amen to that spout!
My teapot was made by the APKO Metal Craft Co. in Holland
Gotta love a lady with a Dutch history
I also snagged a sweet ottoman.
I'm picky about any upholstered pieces I bring into my home.
I inspect, smell, look over closely, take a good whiff...do you get the idea?
Only the best gets to come home with me.
I will slipcover this lovely girl and off to my shop she will go.
I can't believe no one grabbed this fabulous dresser.
I had been in the thrift shop for about an hour when all of a sudden..there she was!
How could I have overlooked her?
She is mine now.
Delicately curved original pulls.
She is a real beauty and is going to get a little style makeover.
Please excuse the photo quality here, but I only had my cell phone camera.
I have not picked up my newest piece so I don't have home photos yet.
This beautiful china cabinet was tucked way in the corner and facing the wall.
No wonder no one spotted it.
Luckily I haunt all corners of my thrift shops, so I grabbed that ticket really fast.
She was a steal with some great detail and lovely hardware.
I can't wait to paint her.
All in all it was a very good thrifting day.
How about you...snagged any bargains lately?
Until next time...be kind and stay creative.
