I Love Thrifting

The last few weeks have been good ones for thrifting. I do love finding new things for my home and at a good, sometimes amazing price!

Here are a few recent finds:
I found this St Michael melamine tray in my local charity shop for just £3. I love the yellow flowers and vintage pattern. I decided to keep it displayed behind my hob.

I absolutely love this very pretty cotton vintage nightie that I found for just £4.
This Irish linen tea towel was just £2. I loved the bright colours and bold pattern.

I went to a vintage market at the weekend, a bit of time to myself to browse the stalls and I found some great vintage bits and pieces:
A friend loves this set so I bought these 5 for her for just £15.

I have always loved the look of these cool retro soda bottles. I finally found a green one perfect for my sideboard. I picked this one up for just £5. You can even still buy the gas to create the bubbles! I feel the need to have a 70's inspired dinner party!
A very cool 1960's Pyrex coffee pot that I got for £5. 
I also picked up this very cute enamel bowl for £3. 

Have you been thrifting recently? Please share your finds!
