Thrifty Life Thursday #4

My trip to the thrift store netted some pretty cool things last was a coffee can. LOVE that lid!

The container had a patina that called my name...and the other side has just a bit of a paper label left.

I saw it when it was marked $4, and left it on the shelf. Last week, it was half price, so I decided to grab it.


This week, we had a fun variety of listings in this new link party gathering. Though it is still an "intimate" gathering, if we were all together in one room for dinner, I know it would be fun and memorable!  

Linsey at The Farmhouse Porch has great style - and her post "Arranging "stuff" on shelves with purpose" showcases some of her textural vintage vignettes. 

In her hands, old floor buffing brushes and light fixtures that many would see as garbage, become stylish displays. Note to self...grab those when you see them next!

Jami from An Oregon Cottage shares her stylish hybrid of chalkboard and subway art. 

RH Knockoff Chalkboard Subway Sign - An Oregon Cottage

She has a well-done, step-by-step tutorial of how she created this project for very little cash-ola. You'll want to rush out to the nearest thrift store when you see how it began.

Shabby Gals (and her not-so-shabby husband) created a most adorable kitchen from two dated bedside tables. 

Any toddler would love this kitchen set-up, complete with real salvaged stove burner hardware and kitchen faucets!

Keeping with the vintage kiddo theme...

Vickie from Ranger 911 is as fun-loving as any kid! Her home is cozy and tasteful, but with plenty of whimsical touches. She finds the best vintage, and uses the items to decorate her home. Her wit shines through, as illustrated in her collection of stylish wearables:


I am tickled that sock monkeys are rocking this vintage garb!

Now it is your time to share!
