Thrifting fun

In the midst of a torrential downpour the other day, we headed out on one of our weekend errand adventures with the girls to pick up a few missing pieces at the tile shop.  Somehow, in my MULTIPLE visits to said tile shop, I never noticed the "upscale resale" thrift shop in the same shopping center.  We went exploring and I brought home a few finds that I had to share.

I'm always on the lookout for lamps - and I loved the shape of this brass pair.  Bonus - they didn't need rewiring - and they were only $22.50.  Though they're not very different from my current living room lamps shown behind the sofa here - to me, they're a big improvement.  I need a smaller harp though, so I'll wait to share the photos of the lamps in situ.

This is my first set of napkin rings - aren't they cute?

And, then I came home to all these goodies in the mail! 

Now, I'm just about all set to make my headboard (with the nailheads, nailhead spacer, tack hammer and mallet shown above).
