Decorating with Thrift Store Finds

I love thrifting.  It let's me change up a room frequently and I don't feel guilty about spending money.  I really can't justify spending full price for anything anymore.   Here are some things I found recently.

This soup tureen was $7.99 at the Salvation Army store. It looks antique, but there were no distinguishing markings on the underside, so I'm not sure.  In any case, I love it so it doesn't really matter. It matched my color scheme perfectly and sparked me to re-do my whole display on and over my  antique sewing machine.

This plate was .99 cents at Value Village. 

I added it to the wall display over my antique sewing machine as well.

I got four of these plates at the Salvation Army Store, at .99 cents each.

 There were matching bowls, which I didn't buy and now regret, but they blend nicely with my Mikasa French Country dishes.

This plate was $1.99 at Value Village.

  I used this one to update the display over my bookcase. 

That's all for now.  Happy thrifting!!!!!
