Thrift Score Thursday #79

thrift score thursday11

Hey Guys!

You may or may not know this based on how you've come to discover my blog here (because I once owned and blogged at ForMyLoveOf.net but over the summer I rebranded and started this new blog), but I cohost #ThriftScoreThursday with some fabulous ladies (Brynne from The Gathered Home, Cassie from Primitive and Proper and Trisha from Black and White Obsession). Today is Thursday and that means I'm going to be chatting with you about one of my recent thrifted scores as well as featuring thrift scores from the #ThriftScoreThursday hashtagged feed on Instagram. I'll have all the nitty gritty details at the end of the post if you're new to the series.

Let me share with you what I scored weekend before last:

I scoured the basket section of my local DAV and went crazy! I was looking for a few last minute pieces for the package I've sent off to my recipient in this year's #SwapItLikeItsHot (look for that the first week of October!) and found a couple amazing pieces for her but had to be selfish and keep this basket for myself. It suits my style so well and look how beautiful my peace lilly plant is in it! They're a match made in heaven.

I can only assume that a fabulous basket hoarder recently died in the area because I've never seen so many amazing baskets in my entire life. I don't even want to know what my husband was thinking when he rounded the corner and saw me acting like a mad women with the shelves. It was pretty terrible.

I have been loving the look of plants in baskets lately. Previously I shared the beautiful woven cane planter that I put my fiddle leaf in. And I also have a mass cane in a fabric woven basket (it was from target, it's a discontinued Nate Berkus basket).

What do you think? Did I score with this one? It may help to disclose the price, it was $2. I'm a happy plant and basket loving gal.

And now to spread some love for fellow thrifters and their amazing thrift scores, here are my featured picks from the feed:

[caption id="attachment_928" align="aligncenter" width="700"]@vintagedesignme Sometimes I imagine that my vintage animalia pieces talk to me. Like this embroidered tiger head, for example. During my quiet moments, I think about how Mr. Tiger might say something like: ? "WTF IS WRONG WITH YOU LADY? ALL YOU DO IS WATCH BAD REALITY TV, READ MAGAZINES, SCROLL THROUGH INSTA, AND POST SNAPCHAT VIDEOS. AND ALSO GO SHOPPING. YOU HAVE PROBLEMZ" ?? And then I would say: "I KNOW" ? And then Mr. Tiger would say: "OH, OK THEN" @vintagedesignme Sometimes I imagine that my vintage animalia pieces talk to me. Like this embroidered tiger head, for example.

  4. You need to teach me your basket ways! I'm sure my home could use the boost of texture, but I never seem to be able to see the potential in my thrift stores' basket shelves...

    Also, I love the way you've formatted the features with the original captions - so great!

  5. Love the texture of your new planter, and what a great size! Seems like similar ones I usually see are always too small. Thanks so much for inviting me to be a part of #TST today, Corinna, it was lots of fun!

  6. What a lucky day to have such a large selection of baskets. You definitely have me team basket + plants. One of these day's I'll get around to snazzing up my planter collection.
