Thursday’s Thrifting Finds

Want to teach your children responsibility and how to care for themselves?  Give them chores, such as doing the dinner dishes.  Want to have a large portion of your drinking glasses broken?  Give them chores, such as doing the dinner dishes! :)


This cupboard was FULL of drinking glasses at one time.  Notice the empty space?


While I was at the thrift store Thursday I noticed 3 drinking glasses just like the ones I had (Top right in this photo) so I put them in my basket.  THEN I got to thinking that I’d like the glasses in MY cupboard to be all different.  So I decided to pick up other glasses that don’t match what I have.  I like the idea of having glasses all shapes and sizes.  As long as they are clear glass I’m going to add them!


Then I also hit the linens jackpot.  I found an off white lace table cloth, a hand embroidered dresser scarf and a large (looks like linen) table cloth that is white with a light blue stitching in it.  I think I’m going to over dye the white and light blue cloth with a teal blue dye.  Just to see what it’ll look like.  I’ll let you know!

I also found four small glasses for my friend Allan.  He collects glassware with silver rims.  I think he’s worth $1.80! :)  What do you look for when you go thrifting?

    Thursday Thrifting has become my date with myself. It’s amazing the wonderful things you can find and it really gets the creative juices flowing. I think this is a good time of year too. People are donating things they got for Christmas but can’t use and also are cleaning out their closets. SCORE!! :)

    This must be glassware weekend! I found 4 never-used hand blown drinking glasses for a buck, and a set of 6 new-in-box Crate & Barrel Christmas glasses for another dollar. Woo hoo! Love that linen tablecloth too.
