Thrifty Thursday

I always go thrifting with a plan. I always know the shapes, sizes and colors of things I want. I never know what is actually going to catch my eye, but I always have something in mind. Some treasures take longer to find than others, but it is always so satisfying to find the perfect thrift.

I have been slowly collecting wooden spoons. They have become a nice collection, but need a home. I’d been looking for a utensil holder for a few months now. I almost broke down a few times and purchased a brown bean crock, but it just wasn’t tall enough, and I wasn’t sure it would add to my decor. Then, I came across this holder last week at my favorite little thrift store. I dug it out from behind a stack of dishes. It was the perfect shape, and the pop of red makes it the perfect color. What I like the most about it is the style. I just fell in love with the little flower decals. The ribbed bottom also gives it a nice finished feel. Best of all, it was $1.00!

Don’t you think it goes lovely next to my thrifted wooden recipe box and garlic keeper? A perfect home for the wooden spoons!

Have you thrifted anything lately?
