At a cost of $45, wet hair and chilled-to-the-bones body, and 2 glorious hours....my net gain was the following:
Let's take a closer look at this loot, shall we?
Raise your hand if you know what will happen to the mirrors? Ding Ding Ding! Paint, glaze, hang in collage, repeat.
I found these fall/winter barn scenes completely gorgeous. If you look closely, you'll see touches of my beloved robins egg blue....which will of course direct the painting of the frames.
I think I'll do a two toned aged effect on them, and save them for cold season decorating. This is the other side of the barn I believe. Looks like the wilds of my home state of Indiana.
Check out the glorious glass...even though I'm not normally crazy for hearts, give me hobnail hearts on a pale green hurricane lamp any ding dang day. Come on now.
Don't I know it. See that date? I think it might be a repro due to markings on the bottom, but shhhhhhhhhh. Don't tell.
Couldn't pass by the two wee oil lamps. And I totally dig that pale greeny-blue vase. Aren't her shapely curves amazing?
Now see, you must understand that each time I enter a thrift shop, heart puttering and hands sweating, I always look for white pitchers. Always. I heart them. My house is becoming not only a bird sanctuary, but a white pitcher museum. Ask me if I care.
How could I pass up this little white diddy? I mean truly, couldn't you just eat it up, scalloped edges and all?
And yes, another retro birdie print. How could I resist? The frame will be dressed in you-know-what. Have you ever?
So there ya have it. Pretty good take home, eh?
Those pitchers are great!
Love everything - but the birdie print...gorgeous! That frame is fabulous, too.
I love the print of the robins, but I'm a pushover when it comes to pitchers-preferably milkglass, but anything white will work. Great stash!
Girl, you did sooooo good!! I love it all! And I heart white pitchers too!! Great stuff!!
Have a great weekend!
Lou Cinda :)
Wow, that was a goldmine of a trip! I just love the little bird print!!!
Love everything. But I swooned on the pic of the white pitchers -- gorgeous finds!! Show us your whole collection some time!!
You got some great loot! I want to jump in the car right NOW and go thrifting! That's what happens when I see other people get such good stuff... But, I have a garage to finish cleaning. woe is me...
Planning a thrifting field trip on Monday with some bloggy friends, so I'll have to wait till then.
have a great weekend!
You found amazing things. I love the pictures and oil lamps and the pitchers are just stunning. I would have taken all of those in a heartbeat. Gorgeous. Hugs, Marty
You did great- done us all proud. I find myself buying white pitchers and cake stands. When did this happen - I can't tell you but it is a sickness I say.
WOW! What a steal....I love the white pitcher, and tiny oil lamps. Great job! Marcia
What a haul. The collection of pitchers speaks to me!
Love the pictures and pitchers. If I ever come to your house and after leaving you notice some "holes" in your collection, don't ask. I know nuhtink! I am going to do a post soon on our meeting place. Weather needs to be a little warmer though. There is a bit of walking involved.
Love your finds, but especially the white pitchers. You sure got a lot for little moula.
You got some great finds! You did good. :)
Oh my goodness!! Great haul - you done good! :)
Hi Cindy, Great haul! The pitchers are gorgeous! Bella
Great pieces! Your thrifts are the queen of thrifts. I wouldn't find that many great pieces at ours in one year, let alone 2 hours.
I love those pitchers! What amazing finds! Lucky you!!!
Wow girl you scored big!!! Woo Hoo way to go Cindy. I personally love all of the whites!!! have a terrific weekend.
MUAH love ya
Pitchers and oil lamps are my favorites, you have been so lucky to have found these! Lovelovelove them...and so cheap! I have been on the hunt for such oil lamps but over here I would probably give the equivalent of about 60$ for only one used oil lamp...Ugh, right! Or I'd have to hunt some old ladies down to get them for free, but I'm not sure that it would be my style of dealing with the situation, hahahaha
I am happy for you though, and I can't wait to see what you do with them :D:D:D
You did good...greAt finds!!! Lovin' those oil lamps.
Love those white pitchers - I would have bought them as well! I'm a sucker for any kind of white dishes :)
I love the white stoneware you found.
Your blog is looking very pretty BTW. Have a great weekend!
I sure say you had a successful day! : )

Luv the pitchers~ now you started something! I have been thrifting as well for the last 2 days!

Hello my name is Deborah and I'm a white ironstone-a-holic.
Great finds! I used to sell that pale green heart hobnail hurricane lamp (as well as a pale pink one) with a shade and get $75 for them.
