This Week's Thrifty and Vintage Finds

>> Wednesday, June 16, 2010

This week while out thrifting I finally found myself some adorable chairs for my dining room table. We have a long table that seats 12 and yet we own only 5 chairs. I'm constantly searching to find affordable chairs that will blend in with what we currently have. While the two on the sides are fairly new, the center is older and all 3 have the feel of coming from an old farm house, which I love! I got all three for $14.99- TOTAL.

Next up is this pretty little pitcher.

It is handmade and marked "Chris 81" on the bottom- which is also decorated, a touch of flair that I find delightful! Tiger Lilies are my favorite flower, so when I saw this for $.99 cents, I knew it had to come home with me.

I love the vibrancy of the colors and the fact that every inch of it is detailed.

Add a few blue hydrangeas from my neighbor's garden and viola- instant charm!

Finally, I have this bowl that matches my Blue Heaven dishes. I believe this style was made by Fire King, while my dishes were made by Royal China. My godmother gave this to me so cost was FREE, what could be better?!

I'm linking up with Suzanne over at Coloradolady for Vintage Thingies Thursday. Stop by and check out all the other fabulous vintage treasures!

Too much goodness! The chairs are terrific (we too have a mix match collection of dining chairs) and the vase is luscious but the 50s bowl is simply the most perfect thing I've seen in a long time!

The chairs were a bargain, and such a useful find. The vase is pretty even without flowers.

Love the casserole dish. It would look fabulous in my kitchen. Also a good score on the chairs. Thanks for sharing.

The chairs are wonderful- The rush seats do have the feeling of coming out of a rustic Country French home.

That pitcher is fabulous. Love the colors!

Love the jug especially with the hydrangeas

Sarah June 17, 2010 at 10:31 PM  

Great finds! You can beat the price of those chairs. I like the idea of mixing different chairs at a table. Hope we get to see a photo of that long table. How nice to have a table that seats 12!
Love the pitcher and the flowers within. :-)
Happy Weekend! ~ Sarah
