thrifty thursday: around my room

for me, thrifting never limits itself to my wardrobe. i have an eclectic decorating style, i feel like older, vintage and antique pieces add so much more character and tell a story. unfortunately since moving home, a lot of my favorite things are in storage. for now i have a few bits and pieces around my room and they give me so much joy.

i love my vanity. this vintage floral tin is from England and most likely held treats at some point in time. it now contains my every day makeup. this beautiful pink and gold vintage hand mirror was a gift and is one of my favorite antique items i own.

the small wooden lamp was a goodwill find, and totally has the 70's vibes i'm into. my gold wire-back chair was only a couple dollars at another goodwill and is perfectly feminine with a cushy white leather seat.

on my shelf i like to collect special things. i especially love finding pretty tins and boxes, jars, and classic books. the mermaid was a gift, not sure if it was thrifted or not, but either way, it's very fitting. the teacup and saucer was handed down to me from my mom. i believe it was her grandmother's.

everything on this wall was treasure hunted. some were gifts and others i found myself. i particularly love the nature photograph on the wall by itself. it was taken in 1978. i also love collecting vintage postcards and have a few on my wall from various places around washington and oregon.

i can't wait to have to have a house of my own again to fill with furniture and all the treasures i want! what are some of your favorite thrift finds you have around your house? does having other people's old stuff creep you out?!
