Loving the Vintage Look

These are things that I have placed on my mini pantry in my kitchen. The candle I bought last weekend at a garage sale for .50, the glass doors knobs at a church thrift store for $1.50 and the cross stitch in the frame for .25 at the thrift store. The frame I already had and spray painted black.

This vignette is on my shelf above my cupboards. I bought the bird cage from Craigs list for $5, the rooster at Goodwill for $2.99, the white vase with flowers I found on the side of the road where someone left them for trash pickup (they were in perfect condition and clean) and the bottle I bought at the church thrift store for 50.

This mongrammed tile I bought for .50 at Old Time Pottery. Not sure where I want to hang it yet.

I made these gift tags. They were white and I dipped them in water that had tea bags seeped in them and then I used the fleur de lis stamps on them. I want to do gift bags in the same way.

I have the next couple of days off so in between cooking, cleaning and laundry I will be going to the thrift stores as well. Oh, also have to take my oldest daughter to the dentist. She needs a cavity filled and her teeth cleaned. Oh, and I have to have a mammogram on Tuesday :-(
