Sunshine and New Thrift Store Find


Karen over at My Little Home and Garden is having a new Sunday Linky Party called Sunlit Sunday.  When I walked into my living room this afternoon the sun was shining on my newest thrift store find.  So I thought I would join the party and show off my newest treasure.  


I told myself I was not going to the Thrift Store until I got rid of a few things.   Well I just couldn't help myself as I was driving by the other day.  And here is what I found.  This beautiful glass vase for $5.00.  They had just brought it out in a cart and hadn't even set it on the shelf yet and it jumped right into my cart.
I love the way the light is shining off it and making little sparkles on the floor.
The stuff in the vase came with it and I haven't decided yet what I'm going to put in it.


Here are a couple more pictures.






I also like the way the sun is shining on the floor and the magazine rack.  The table in front of the window is a new treasure too and I will tell you about it in my next post.





For now I am joining Karen at My Little Home and Garden here for Sunlit Sunday 
and 
Debbiedoos Newbie Party

I hope you all have a great week!

Until next time,
Barb

Thanks so much for joining in, Barb! I love the way the light plays around your new vase; it's like little jewels have been scattered about. You and I have something in common;I never tire of watching the sunlight move around my living room, highlighting different objects (or bits of dust!) as it travels. Have a lovely Sunday!

That is a lovely vase. How about putting tall branches for the winter...a big armload of forsytheia would be so prettty in the spring....endless possibilities. You will have lots of fun filling it.

Great thrift find and photo.
I was checking out the chair as closely as possible - I have one very similar that was a wedding present my parents received. We had it recovered and it sits in the bedroom, one of the few pieces of furniture that was worth saving.

Great find. The vase is sparkling in the sunshine.

I'd have had a hard time resisting it too - we all need a little sparkle when all the decorations have been put away.

Love that table. My grandmother had one of those. I beleive it was oak. You don't see them much anymore and certainly not with the rollers on the feet.
