For my thrifty finds this week I found these beautiful wooden silhouette prints at my local charity shop in the 50p frame box, I brought the pair for £1 pound. I seen to be gravitating towards items from Scotland recently, as these two pretty prints are from Edinburgh and are made using a technique called 'Marquetry' where the artist rough sketches a drawing on paper and uses there eye to draw onto selected wood and cut, assembled and finished by hand to form the one-of-a-kind wood image. Very cool!
Another glass item caught my eye when I went into my local charity shop, I spotted this thick beautifully cut glass vase for £1.99 and loved the flower pattern on the outside. It was all fairy liquid cleaned, and this morning I cut some roses from our garden to put in the vase.
In the fabric section, I spied this vintage curtain, on the price label it had 'old curtain fabric'. It is fully lined and quite heavy fabric, but I liked the flower patterns on the fabric, and I could definitely use it to sew a lot of projects.
And lastly thank you to all the fantastic Vintage, charity, thrifty blogs that I follow, I absolutely love reading all your blogs and adore looking at all thrifty finds and everyday life.
