Sharing my weekly faves from the Nifty Thrift flickr group where people post pics of their nifty thrifty finds.
I love the way globes of different colors and sizes look grouped as collections. I see globes in the thrift stores all the time and have to hold myself back, if only there were a place to put them in our wee home... Sigh. I remember having one of those small globe banks like the two in front when I was a kid. I could probably find a place for some of those, I'll have to keep my eye out. I would definitely find a home for the little globe in this group of thrifted items. The size is perfect and I think the base is very unique looking.
Being a bird lover, I thought this poster was cool right off the bat, then I read the description to discover that it's actually six different posters including sea creatures, water birds, and fish... AWESOME... AND it was only $2 at the Salvos... AWESOME-ER! Take a closer look here.
This bird and flower dish is too sweet! O!Rachew! put it in her Etsy shop and it sold but you can take a look at it from different angles here. The colors are really lovely.
I also came across this lovely creation while browsing through the Nifty Thrift pool:
Kim McCabe made this beautiful grapevine wreath for her home using vintage buttons and antique lace, pocketwatch cases, and cabinet cards. Wreaths often have a tendency to get very busy with everything packed together tightly. I love the sparse decoration of this one. It has such a dainty simplicity and the tone on tone color scheme is so pretty. What a wonderful thrifty DIY project this could be, the possibilities are endless :)
