Thrift Store Finds

I found this long mirror at a thrift store for five dollars
and I knew it would look good on my red wall in
my home office,clutter room. I have seen antique ones 
similar to this one before and loved the look 

Then I found these tall candle sticks at same thrift store on different trips shopping.
a couple of them I spray painted gold,the 
matching pair. I have them sitting in the 
floor beside one of my old dish cabinets  

Today I am trying to hang a heavy ornate gold leaf shelf 
on the red room wall 
and I knocked it off while hanging an item over it!!
It is in the studio with E6000 glue on it 
It will be OK ( smiley face)

I am home today and in the mood to do about 6 different things and just go from one to another since things aren't working out as I had them planned.
Surely you know what I mean.

I'm taking  Bernideen to lunch Saturday for her late birthday lunch.
She was waiting for a new coffee sandwich shop to open here in Columbia Missouri.
It's open so few of us are going for her.Then a little downtown shopping.
One of our favorites shops downtown is Kent's Florist
He has fabulous home decor and small gifts.

ps Did you notice my new blog header? Bernideen made it for me

  13. Sometimes its surprising what amazing vintage things one can purchase from a thrift store. The collection you have shared with us in this article is beautiful. The mirror, the candle sticks and the heavy gold leaf shelf which unfortunately is a damage control mode, all speak a thousand words when added to the already existing walls of a house. Thank you Janice for letting us be part of your thrift store finds experience.

  14. What great finds! I've given up thrifting for Lent so no thrift stores for me until mid-April!

  15. Going to an antique shop is always fun. It is more exciting to see similar kinds of stuff of the same shape and color as an antique. The mirror on the red wall is really beautiful. However, some things cannot be replicated like decor of a music Institute in Coimbatore
