Last week you may have noticed a slight lack in posts. Well, my father-in-law is to blame. He generously invited the hubs and I to tag along for a weekend trip to Gatlinburg, which was oh-so needed. We had an absolute blast and although the “we’re home from vacation and back to normal life” mode has set in without remorse, we discovered a few finds that I’ve been dying to share.

On the way out of Sevierville there was a strip of antique and thrift stores that we managed to swing through. Here’s a little glimpse of what we stumbled upon. And yes, many people though I was a crazy person taking pictures of random objects in their stores.. Ricky included.

These beauties were the only actual purchase that we made of the bunch. I absolutely love old mason jars and when I spied these gals in teal I fell head over heals.

Right now, they’re living in our office area. I was thinking possible pencil holder, maybe a vase full of hydrangeas. As far as I was concerned at the time, they’d look great with just about any white accent.

I’m still kicking myself for not buying this next one. Five buckaroos for a mustard yellow vintage cookie jar… what is my problem, seriously.

If we hadn’t just purchased a new headboard for our bed I would have jumped all of over these old shutters. A grouping of them would make such a statement.

Last, but far from least.. this magnificent rustic dining table.  I didn’t even consider asking about price. If it had been affordable this puppy would have strapped to the top of our Explorer. No joke. Pus, at about 10-12 feet long this baby would have no place in my home…

But with it’s rustic charm I’m not sure how that stopped me.


Any good thrift finds lately?
