Nifty Thrift Picks of the Week (11.05.08)

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

I’ve mentioned before how Milla and I enjoy sending one another packages of thrifted goodies. Well, since I can’t send her anymore stuff until she makes her much anticipated move to the States, I’m dedicating this week’s picks to her instead. If I were shopping for Milla in the Nifty Thrift pool this week, these are the items I would choose to send (and as always, want to keep for myself :)

These German fairytale postcards are too cool. Adorable illustrations AND they remind me so much of the cover art on The Monsters of Templeton, a most wonderful book introduced to me by Milla over the Summer.

For the girl who dreams of Alaska, what better thrifty gift than a vintage Alaskan Tea towel? By the way, I would grab this one too and have to try reaaaally hard not to keep it for myself ;)

Last but not least, this oh so cute, vintage mug for her beloved tea :) Hope your preparations for the big move are going smoothly Milla!

The Scandiniavian tea towel makes my heart quake! Oh those amazing Nordic people-- impeccable design sense and a heightened appreciation for Cute, what a fatal combination!

actually, i think the teatowel is finnish, maybe danish; i have a set of napkins by the same designer.
