Nifty Thrift Picks of the Week (8.22.08)

Sharing my weekly faves from the Nifty Thrift flickr group where people post pics of their nifty thrifty finds.

As my own kitchen is currently a mess, awaiting a planned expansion and remodel that is unfortunately stalled at the permit getting stage, I found inspiration this week in these three lovely thrifty kitchen corners:

Here's a better look at that amazing vintage scale from the third picture:

The scale was donated to the thrift store by an old post office that closed down. It's got that magic green/chrome thing going on, isn't it gorgeous? I want one and I don't even know what I'd use it for. Probably nothing, but it sure would look cool in my fantasy kitchen, along with these covetable finds:

Oh we have vines in our kitchen too. It's somehow taken on the most retro personality of the house, in the most lovely of ways. I hope you get your permit!
