Back to Life, Back to Reality

Happy (late) New Year! The time really flies by when you're neglecting your blog, huh? As you may have noticed I've deleted almost all of my old posts. While perusing through said posts I realized just how far off my original course I had roamed. My initial plan when starting this little space was to show off my latest thrift store finds, promote my Etsy shop and connect with other vintage loving gals. So starting today I am getting this vintage train back on track and what better way to do it then with my first ever Thrifty Finds post. It's not much but it's a start. Enjoy!

 
This week has been extremely slow in the thrifting department as most of my favorite shops are closed due to snow. However, last week turned up some pretty great finds... including my new arc floor lamp. I scored this beauty for just $14!
The chrome lamps are more desirable than the gold ones but I think the shape and finish match perfectly with my Curtis Jere. Another thrifty purchase... and for only $10!
 
I actually found this piece a few weeks ago but have yet to hang it. We're waiting on a carpenter friend of ours to help so we don't damage the walls. You would be shocked at how easily our apartment walls mar. I'm convinced they're made of paper mache and chicken wire.
As for the rest of my vintage finds... I scored a great no smoking sign, covered Pyrex casserole dish and miscellaneous clothing items. Some of which will be listed in my shop soon. ;)
