Fun Finds...

Yesterday my husband and I took a day for some relaxation and stopped in at a thrift store.  Thought I'd share some of the fun finds of the day!  Isn't the sheet music fun?  I found some pretty linens, too...

This homespun looking piece is from Austria~ I've really been attracted to blue lately...

and I love the detail on this lovely piece...

Satin hankie holders are always a fun find...

Paper doilies are great for artwork or in the kitchen...

This great basket purse is from the 60' the kitschy shells and golden paint on the sides...

This vintage wool boy's cap is so cute...

as is the sweet name tag inside...

Vintage hangers...

and a lovely pair of Italian brass wall sconces round out the discoveries today!

These were actually tagged, something I've only previously seen on tole pieces.  We had a great day~ you just never know what treasures are waiting out there!

If you haven't entered the giveaway I have going on right now, you can click on the button below, or visit my last post!  Its open until January 3rd!

Until next time...wishing you all a...
