Thrift Store Shopping For My Birthday!

I am enjoying the thrift store haunt and finds at the moment, so this year, the birthday gift I gave myself was a thrift store shopping spree! I am happy I found beautiful pieces.

I am loving the plate! It was by Narumi's 2000 year plate featuring Chihiro Iwasaki's illustration of the Tulip Girl Statue from 1973 collection, my birth year!

The flatwares. I love the vintage sugar cube tong!

A beautiful stemware! I love the detailed Rose carvings on the stem.

Cute mini ceramic reamer. This is the second reamer I bought from the thrift store. Hmmm... another one and it will be another collection?

A 70s Eagle sand art frame, souvenir iron trivet and tin tray!

I got a great deal on these two! Wood bowl and wood server tray.

For future DIY projects!

A happy birthday to me indeed!

Surplus Shop Sneak

Going to surplus shops has become my obsession lately. It was decided at first that those trips will just be done once a month. But oh, waiting for another trip is just too long a wait! So, on my trip to town last Friday, I sneaked into one of the shops and these are what I got!

Condiment server. My new and recent "will buy" items are serving dishes and I am just so happy with this find.

White ceramic dessert plate. Honestly, I wasn't too happy with this one. But well, there's nothing I can do but use and enjoy it.

Wooden Wise Monkeys. This one is a great find and more of a dream come true as I really wanted to have something to remind me of the "Hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil" thing.

Happy thrifting indeed!
