Thrift Store Finds

A week ago I made it to the thrift store and scored! I was able to find a couple cute creamer pitchers, some white cafe curtains with red stitching(sigh), a vase, purple sheer curtains for J room and some cute white plates. I am so glad I stopped, I almost put it off for another day. Here my new treasures.

The cafe curtain coordinates with my kitchen perfectly. They only had one valance and four cafe curtains. My kitchen window is very large and the valance worked great for only one side. I whipped out my trusty sewing machine and shortened the cafe curtain. Two panels was the right side for the other half of the window. I decided not to sew those two panels together thinking that it might be hard to match up the border. I am glad that I didn't bother with it, when hung you have to look pretty close to find out it is not one panel. Now I have two panel leftover to make something else with, I'm thinking maybe a pillow slipcover. I just love the finished product. Take a look(below), COOL HUH!


  1. They are G R E A T! Love the curtains.

    I've been non-blogging all week. Busy making over my kitchen with black accents. I'll post what I did soon.

    Two of my four are off with Mimi this week so I too hit the thrift stores. I wasn't so lucky in the nick nack department, but found a great Nine West purse for $1.50! Also found some skirts and t's for the nice weather that will come back some day, right?

    Love the post, keep them coming . . . :)


    ps. I've been meaning to suggest, I have the same broom/mop issue as you, I'm getting a behind the door hanger. I'll let you know how it goes!

  2. Thanks!

    Sounds like you scored too! Hope your going to post a picture, would love to see the purse. I always forget to look at the purses, I'm always so energized about the housewares.

    Can't wait to see what you have done with your kitchen (I'm sending vibes your way...think lots of pictures, lots of pictures)Can't wait!


I love hearing from you. Thanks for stopping by!
