My thrift store find...



The other day I went to a nearby thrift~store run by one of the local churches here... Many items are so reasonable! I have found alot of wonderful treasures there through the years... sometimes they simply need cleaned up a bit to be brought back to their former beauty... The other day I happened upon this beautiful vintage silver trinket box... fifty cents! I am thrilled with it and it will sit proudly on my dresser, perhaps with a vintage rhinestone brooch in it, as maybe it once did in the past... I love the tarnished, well~loved look... I too will love and care for it...

  2. Dear Julie Marie,

    It is exquisite, and will be beautiful on your dresser with a vintage rhinestone brooch in it. The price was wonderful, too! I love finding old things and giving them a new home. I know you will love and care for this!

    Love, Paula

  4. That is a very beautiful find. It will be beautiful sitting on your dresser. Did they have any milk glass? I would love to spend more time in Antique stores, I don't seems to do it by myself.

    What are you doing for White Wednesday?

  5. Hello, Julie Marie,
    What a wonderful find! It will look beautiful on your dresser, too. I am going to have to get to some thrift stores and have a look. I have seen so many beautiful things that have been found there. Your treasure was a steal for only fifty cents. Thanks for visiting me at Bunny Cottage. Hope you have a wonderful week. Vicki

  6. Hello. Happy to make your acquaintance. I came over from a comment you made in 'Blondie's' blog. :-)

    Mmmm, what a lovely on-line-journaling place you have here! Pink and soft and I too love the feelings evoked by 'The Wind In The Willows' and the 'Brambly Hedge' books, etc.

    I hope to make a return visit, soon. And would love it, if you find time to pay a call over in 'the Attic.' :-)

    Gentle hugs,
    'Aunt Amelia'

  10. Hi, so nice to meet you. I read what you wrote on Blonde's post and wanted to come and see your blog. I too turned sixty, and although facing the end of a chapter when I was so needed, I soon discovered me again. Now, I am so enjoying my life again, but in a brand new way.

    Your blog is gorgeous, and I love the trinket box that you found. Another favorite thing to do, visiting Vintage shops.

  11. Chère Julie, you asked what state I live in... NYS, but upper. No where near 'the Big Apple.' Thankfully. I'm not a Big City gal. :-)

    Wishing you some rain, over in your state. Actually, we had loads of it. And now, less and less. It's actually beginning to seem like the usual August, complete with a mini heat/humid spell.

    But, soon enough, all of us will be shivering in cold/snow/ice. ,-) Must remember that, hu?

    Étreintes douces,
    'Aunt Amelia'
