Nifty Thrift Picks of the Week (2.11.09)

Sharing my weekly faves from the Nifty Thrift flickr group where people post pics of their nifty thrifty finds. In other words a weekly spot for me to publicly covet the finds of others :)



Minnetonka Moccasins

I am completely smitten with this eclectic and cozy sleeping space: the unlikely mix of the floral and plaid pillowcases with that gorgeous vintage patchwork quilt (estate sale find) and the thrifted stripey rug is pattern mixed perfection... and how amazing is that dreamcatcher?!

3. The only thing missing in that cozy lil' nook would be this perfect pair of Minnetonkas at the foot of the bed ;)

Ooooh, I agree about the cosy, cosy sleep nook. It looks heavenly.

i love the raggedy quilt ... reminds me of the Dolly Parton song 'coat of many colours'

I had to laugh when I saw the first photo and thought "with box!" and then read your post on how something that comes with a box just seems added special...that is so true!

Hats that come with boxes make me happy because they make me think of the 30s-50s and the Golden Age of Hollywood. How fabulously vintage. :)

I'm glad you like our little room, its just about as cozy as cozy can be! thanks for sharing it here.

I fell in love with that room when I found it on flickr earlier this week! You're right...pure perfection. Also, my dad taught me how to make dreamcatchers when we were home over Christmas and I would love to make one similar.

The moccs are incredible as well.

What great picks! I love the hat! There is an antique store here in town that sells tons of vintage hats in boxes...but they are so expensive :(

O How I have dreamed of thrifting a vintage hat... and a vintage hat box... but now I'll have to dream of finding a vintage hat-in-a-box!

all of these photos are so fantastic and warm looking (if that makes any sense)!
