Thrifty Finds


I love to go to thrift stores and look for interesting items to decorate with. I recently found this darling little layered dress, vintage straw hat, and beautiful straw tote with crocheted flowers. I immediately knew that I wanted to display them. I think it's perfect for a summertime display.

I have been collecting vintage picnic baskets. This is my most recent find and probably my favorite so far. It is quite large and has leather handles and straps. The thermos and picnic items are intact. I have it displayed on the top of my dresser with more beachy finds.

For more thrifty finds head on over to Rhoda at Southern Hospitality

Blessings,
