Found Treasures.....

Some days on my lunch break, I have a chance to go to our hospital's thrift shop .It's a hit or miss kind of thing, well the other day I was lucky, I found a few Vintage Pastiche style things, I was particularly excited about the vintage framed photo, I just love the girl's dress, the cameo and valance I found seem to echo the vintage period of the picture. I also snagged that cute little lamp with roses, although it's new *gasp* and it even has a "made in china" sticker on it, I think a pretty little shade on it will give it that vintage feel. In the back you might see a peek of 2 wall sconces that were in my purchase, they are candle sconces and have mirror backings, painted a creamy white they will look great hanging somewhere in the house.

We have a thrift shop by our hospital too. It's one of my favorite little spots. I haven't been there for a while - perhaps tomorrow would be a good day for that! Blessings.. Polly (p.s. Did you ever get to visit PEI??? Oh, I would just scream for the chance!)

What wonderful finds. I need to take time to go back to my favorite thrifts. I have not been in a while. Thank you for lighting a fire under me!
