THURSDAY'S THRIFT....paint by number to polka dots

Vintage dress with pocket detail.  This dress was $2.99 at Goodwill.  The length is short and has an A- line cut.  I accidentally deleted the full length photo.  If you remember, I am only  allowing myself to buy vintage pieces right now.  This was worthy of my closet for the price.  I can wear this now with leggings and a cardi over it.

Goodwill score!!!  I saw this at Target but thought it was too expensive.  I got it for $14.99.  I know that it's a bit hefty price wise for GW but I also know it's one of Target's newer items so I snatched it up.  It's heavy and sturdy and bigger that the photo reveals. 

How cute are these little crocheted cup cozies?  I had to have them for .50 cents each.  I found them while rummaging through an antique store back in October when Rob and I took a mini getaway to Pennsylvania.  The tray is from Goodwill/ .99cents. 


This vintage fan was found recently when my friend Laura and I went to a huge co-op barn that was full of antiques.  I know that these fans usually go for a lot more money than what I paid.  The vender happened to be there that night and gave me a 30% discount which brought it down to $22.00.  I was inspired to buy it when I saw this post here.  This Vintage Grove is so full of goodies, I love visiting her blog.

This rather large, vintage, paint by number, art piece and another one like it were found at a huge warehouse not far from my home called Wacker's.  It's a family owned business that has been around for years.  I just started going back to shop there again because they have unique pieces of furniture and I am still looking for a couch.  They are a bit pricey though, so I bought these for $4.95 each.  As soon as I find a couch I will decorate my living room...can't wait to use these items that I've been purchasing.  I do have a vision for these goodies.

Love the vibrant orange in this picture but the deer sealed the deal.  The frame on this one is in need of some wood glue but for the price, it was worth it.  What items have you scored lately? I am linking this post to The Tiny Heart Blog for a link up celebrating great deals and cheap finds for Look What I Got!!!

These are wonderful doll, love the yellow and polka dots of the top/dress, that will look so lovely on you :) All of these are super finds, love the old fan, reminds me of one that was around when I was little, we we're always told to keep our fingers away from it or they'd get chopped off, lol. Funny, but true!! Have a great day doll xox

Evry item is wonderful. Love the Target antlers. I have an old fan and use it as a decorative item. Those things scared me as a kid. My grandparents would tell me I'd cut off my fingers if I got to near. I was a wuss, so I never got close.

In all off my days of thrifting I have never seen glass cozies. They are just adorable!
I hope to go thrifting later today. My Mom is coming in to town and I know I can count on her!
Have a great weekend!
