“Thrifty & Vintage Finds” Link Party 131 – Gingham Salt Shaker

by Dagmar Bleasdale on August 22, 2016

antique store in Cold Spring, NYWelcome to “Thrifty & Vintage Finds” Link Party No. 131

Yesterday was my birthday, and I had a perfect day. Don, Landon, and I drove to Cold Spring to have brunch at our favorite place, and I captured a few nice photos of them.

Strolling down the street is always so much fun, because Cold Spring is dotted with antique stores.

I wasn’t planning to spend any money, but then I did find one little thing that came home with me.

Can you guess what’s new here?

That tin gingham salt shaker.

I could easily see myself starting a collection of vintage items with a gingham pattern.

I’m going to try really hard to avoid this next collection :)

What do you collect?

If you found an amazing deal lately, a vintage or thrifty find, then I’d love you to link up. You could get featured next week.

I also feature DIY posts if you transformed something that was originally a thrifty or vintage find.

Did you show off your latest find at the last party? If you linked up, thank you!

I decided to feature Melissa’s find, who blogs at Melissa’s Antiques

It was tough to decide who to feature, there were so many fun items I loved, but in the end these Germantown flour bags caught my attention the most since I’m from Germany.

I want to buy one, frame it, and hang it up in our kitchen!

Dagmar, Happy Birthday to you! Your dau looked well spent, and the photo of tour guys is fantastic. I love how they’re looking at each other. Love the little shaker you found, and guess what? HL has knobs that match that gingham print, did you know? I just came across them while reading one of my magazines. Here’s the link if you want to check it out: http://www.hobbylobby.com/Home-Decor-Frames/Decorative-Accessories/Knobs-Pulls/Red-White-Plaid-Round-Ceramic-Knob/p/40598
You should definitely get one of those flour sacks and frame it! Perfect for you and your home!
Thank you for hosting the vintage love!
Rita
