Thrifted Birthday Gifts

It was recently my birthday (June 29th) and Ed got me a few gifts from the antique store!

He knew I had been eyeing them up during a previous visit, so he went back the next day to purchase them (he told me after I opened them of course). Funny thing is, I knew that these items were gone, but never suspected he bought them! We were back in the store at some point between that visit and my birthday and I looked to see if they were still there (they weren't obviously).

This key - key holder (haha) is pretty hefty and made out of metal.

This mirror resembles a cameo, which is what I love about it. Also, it's super unique! I've never seen one like this before. And you might notice, in that first shot I'm wearing the bandana from this post :)

Another key! I suppose this one could hold jackets/hats since the hooks are larger. I had been looking at both of them and at the time didn't know which one I would want, so Ed got me both. No complaints here!

After I took all these photos, I can now only see this smiling face when I look at this key! (I always find faces in things, is that strange?)

All three items come from the Route 65 Trading Post in Lincoln.

Happy Thrifting!

Recent Finds

Here are some items I recently picked up!

I found this magnet at Goodwill. We haven't been to Lassen yet, but it's on our to-do list! Since we found a souvenir for a better price at the thrift store, we figured why not get it now? It's a cool, cut-out-slab-of-wood magnet!

This glass also comes from Goodwill (same trip). I know I mentioned before how much I love sets of glasses - here's my first success in only buying one from the set (it helped that all of them were exactly the same - when they match but are slightly different, it's harder to pass up). Anyway, I love this owl!

This bandana is actually cut in half, but I don't really care. It was a good price (for half a bandana) and I love the color. I might wear it, or I might use it for decoration - haven't decided yet! (This comes from the Roseville Hospice Thrift Store.)

I just picked up a little something yesterday in Reno, but I already had this post ready to go, so you'll see that in the near future.

Happy Thrifting!
