Here are my recent thrift store finds y’all!

For some reason I always seem to come across these tile mosaic tray-ish things. This one is actually more of a shallow bowl, it is hard to tell from this picture though.

I completely could not pass up this sweet little Ceramicraft Seal!

I thought this atomic looking mirror/planter was super cool. The mirror is all angled, and it is hard to tell but the mirror angles in toward the top too.

I thought these space age/rocket glasses were completely awesome!

Lastly, I found a print by Vladimir Tretchikoff. This one is called Chinese Girl. Vladimir Tretchikoff started painting the Chinese Girl in 1946 and finished it in 1950. Millions of prints were made of the Chinese Girl over the years, making it one of his most popular works.

I hope y’all have found some treasures too!

    Betty – I’m sure you will come across a Tretchikoff sooner or later, I didn’t even know I was looking for one and I found it! πŸ™‚ And girl, you know we do need to go shopping together – you can show me where you find all those Collins bags!
